The past couple of days have been extremely busy! Monday was both jobs and my workouts, Tuesday was jury duty over an hour away from my apartment, and yesterday I was crazy busy trying to catch up at work and ridiculously tired from jury duty.
Tuesday was pretty much useless. I just gave up on trying to work out. I had to be up, showered, and out the door at about 7 am to make it to jury duty by 8:30 am. And then I was the 3rd to last potential juror of the day called. I didn't get called until 3:45 or so, and after a tirade of questions I was excused at about 4:30. Cue the over an hour drive home and this girl sat for 10-11 hours straight causing knee pain to return quite forcefully. I mean, I usually sit a lot at work but get up every 15 minutes or so to grab a piece of paper or do something. This was just solid sitting with a lunch break and only 2 five-ten minute breaks. Ugh!
Today's run was some speed work. Apparently I'm not the best at counting in the morning, because when I was figuring out what to do for my intervals, I thought I'd have a half mile warm up, half mile cool down, and 1.5 miles of intervals for a total of 2.5 miles. Three miles later I was very confused. Oh well, it helps make up for Tuesday's missed workout!
The rest of today holds job 1, job 2, and then sleep.
Have you ever had jury duty? Were you picked or dismissed?
What's your "happy pace," or the pace you usually go for kickass runs?
Safe and happy running!
