Tough start to the week

Both Melissa and I felt rough this morning as the alarm clock sounded at 5.45am for our 4.5 mile run. Despite getting to bed at a reasonable time last night we were both still wiped after the 7 mile run on Sunday when it hit 95 degrees by the end of the day. For anyone who is going to undertake a marathon or half marathon training plan, don't scoff when you see the 4-3-4 mile schedule midweek. Each run may be short but after you have a long run on the weekend, the back to back runs add up to at least ten miles. It's even harder doing it first thing in the morning! Tomorrow we have 3 before another 4.5 miler on Thursday but I'm just glad to be able to run again without pain.
