Daily Note

6mi Tempo

I'm really getting frustrated at everything stopping me from getting in the training I want. I swear if I could just do what I wanted I could give running a fast marathon a serious shot but there is so much out of my control it is beyond infuriating.

Nothing about not tempoing today was my fault. Everything, from the dumb travel, which prevented there being any shot at getting to the city to do this oyo, to the dumb bike Becca used next to me blowing out a tire 10 miles from the car because it was so old.

The only silver lining is that the wind was really really significant, so the effort on the way out was an actual effort (likely in the low-6 minute range for some), and the tempo on the way back would have not been accurate at all, which counts for something.

Really just had an awful weekend.
