It was the best of runs, it was the worst of runs....

This morning I had a great run, in complete contrast to yesterday's run. I wasn't even sure I was going to run this morning after the crud run yesterday, but I'm glad I did. Had a nice, easy 3 miler at about a 9:15 pace. I went with my music playlist today instead of the podcasts I have been listening to, and I think that helped me mentally. I felt great.

I am not sure what makes a good run good, or a bad run bad, although it seems like from reading other people's blogs that everyone has both kinds of runs. I think maybe there are days when it just clicks, and days when it doesn't. Anyone have a secret formula for good/bad runs?

And now for a little mid afternoon distraction, I can't tell if this is the cutest baby costume or most disturbing baby costume I've ever seen....you're vote?

i definitely have both as well, and wish i could figure out the formula to never have bad runs... although they make the good runs better :) that pic is too cute, although the baby doesn't seem all that impressed by being in the pot... disturbing and cute?!

From my conpetative golf days I can tell you - there are days when the body and mind are right on, and there are days when you are completely off - and there is no rhyme or reason as to when or why it happens. You just have to take it in stride.

That picture is more than a little disturbing.

For me, every run feels like a good one when I'm done. But, it's a matter of how I feel during that makes it good or bad. It usually comes down if I ran "fast and comfortable". If that happened, then it was probably a good run.

In regards to the lobster... Coming from someone who dressed his daughter as a football for her first Halloween, I'll have to vote that it's not that disturbing. However, I never pretended to cook her. :)

For me, the bad runs make the other ones good, and vice versa. The only way I've been able to control having less bad runs is to give myself a day off in between. I did 3 runs per week, and 2 cross training days when I was training for a marathon.

Oh, and the baby is cute, although is it really shoved down into that pail?!
