A terrible, HORRIBLE, no good, very bad run!
Saturday was by far the worst run I’ve ever had, even worse then my 1st week running. (Okay, okay, now I may be getting a little dramatic…) But really. Check this shitaki out:
Monday, Memorial Day: I ran a mile and a half without stopping, my PERSONAL BEST.
Tuesday I precepted 3a-3p, Wednesday I worked, Thursday Justin and I went KAYAKING and got sunnnnnn burrrrnnnntttt (Pictures soon) and Friday I don’t remember what I did……… oh yeah I had a mock interview at school (nailed it)
So Saturday I go to run…. Got my new Brooks running shoes that I’ve been dying to break in…..
I can’t run half a lap around the park without gasping for air.
This is how I felt:
gasping for air, feet weighing a ton, unable to run half a lap when less than a week prior I ran 3 without stopping! What the hell????!!!!!!
I attribute it to a few things:
- I had just worked 12 hours at the nursing home on my feet
- It was oppressively hot AND humid
- I had new shoes on
- My knees were crispy lobster red from kayaking
I was miserable. I apologize to the families who heard a few F bombs
I was mad.
I know everyone has a bad run, everyone, even the elites I follow on, have shit days. It was just discouraging and straight up pissed me off, like flipping on the lights in the kitchen at 2am and seeing a cockroach scutter across the counter top…. (I grew up in Florida, everyone has roaches in Florida)
Of course you know, this means WAR!
Tomorrow I am going to lace up my shoes and try again…. this time in the morning. Tomorrow afternoon, we KAYAK!!!
On a positive note- we started 5 gallons of Rhubarb wine today! And I believe we will be bottling our strawberry wine tomorrow, huzzah!!!! The Rhubarb will be ready for Valentine’s Day.
Wish me luck for tomorrow’s run!!!!!
