Painful miles today.  Average 8:14.  But I didn't feel good, and I needed a two mile potty break.  Thank goodness for construction sites.  I have developed a love for the green "port a john" that seems out of touch with a good healthy life.  It is so interesting to me that excercise feels so different from day to day.  I am becoming more convinced that it is based on sleep and maybe more importantly the right nutrition, neither of which I have a great handle on yet.

Yes sleep is a major factor. For me it usually not the night before but the one before it. When I have a really long sleep, say 8 hours, then the morning after I feel slugish and still sleepy. I ususally benefit from it the day after. It is especially true when it come to races.

Nutrition is probably important too but I, like you, didn't get an handle on yet. I'm vegetarian so it is probably more tricky for me.
