With the Wind at Your Back

Yesterday was a rest day...a much needed rest day.  The plan was to get up this morning and run 5.  I didn't fall asleep last night until about 3am!  I was very over tired and could not fall asleep.  This led me to sleep in until 10 this morning!  I hate sleeping that late.
I made my coffee, did my sudoku, and got ready to go run.  I had two cups of coffee and an apple with peanut butter for breakfast.
I finally took off to run at almost noon.  I had to work at 3, so I was really pushing it.
It was pretty chilly out and quite windy.  The forecast also called for rain.  It was a little dark, but I figured I'd be fine.  A little rain never hurt anyone.
I started running and after about a minute I realized I was going too fast.  I tried to slow down, but it wasn't working.  The wind really blew against me on the way out.  With pushing my speed so much faster than I'm use to, I was worried I was going to burn out by the second mile.  As soon as I turned after mile 1, the wind somehow turned to my back.  It really pushed me along.  I had the fastest run that I have ever had!  I just could not seem to slow down and I figured if I was still going I must be capable of it.
It started drizzling around mile 2, but never turned into anything serious. As soon as I got home I stretched, ate and jumped in the shower for work.

Now, I have to watch Chelsea Lately, get my clothes and lunch ready for tomorrow and go to bed since I have to be there by 7am!  Here's hoping tomorrow goes fast! TGIF!!
