I have turned it around. I ran like I was supposed to this week. That slippery slope of skipping one, then two runs did not last.
I did some 1600s on Tuesday, a :30 second per mile decreasing pace 6-miler on Thursday. That was hard. Friday I jogged four miles.
Tomorrow I will be asked for a note from my keeper for the unexcused absence last Sunday. I'll have to outrun them.
