The good news: It’s Tuesday. or Wednesday
The bad news: It’s only Tuesday or Wednesday
The good news: I planned out my miles for the week
The bad news: I already messed it up by not running on Monday
I know I can’t be the only runner who sometimes doesn’t want to run, and then doesn’t just because they don’t want to.
I really don’t have a legitimate excuse as to why I couldn’t run yesterday. I could have. But I didn’t want to. I had planned on running 6 miles, and then 6 miles just sounded not fun.
I thought about cross-training, but that didn’t sound fun either – plus, I ate a whole bunch of candy corn on my way home from work and my belly hurt. I’m stupid, but those candy corn were pretty tasty.
Today when I got home I laid on the couch and read a book. I love reading and for the last year or so I’ve really neglected reading actual books. My time has been taken up by reading blogs, and writing my own blog.
I love all things blogs, but sometimes I need a break and like to submerge myself in some fictional characters. – This book isn’t quite the book I was looking for, but it will do. I’ll write a short review when I’m done reading it.
When I couldn’t wait any longer I changed into my running clothes and headed out the door. It’s still like a million degrees here so I have to wait until I think it might have cooled down a little.
“Cooled down” mean it was 90 degrees instead of 95. awesometastic. I wore my new shoes today. Did I show you my new shoes? I forget.
There ya go.
I ran 3 miles, 27:10, 9:02avg of pure suck. I felt like I was running with two cinder blocks tied to my legs. It was brutal. I stopped to stretch at 1/2mi, 1.5mi, 2mi, and I walked for a few seconds about 3/4mi from the house. I can think of multiple adjectives to describe today’s run, none of them are nice.
Running schedule for the rest of the week:
Monday – rest
Tuesday – 3
Wednesday – 5
Thursday – 4
Friday – Rest
Saturday – 10
total miles – 22
