My day started out pretty good. I do know that I am so ready for friday. I was a zombie this afternoon. I got home and decided to close my eyes for 2o minutes before my run. Well, an hour later I woke up so confused. I was passed out. Not sure why I was so exhausted but the nap helped.
After I woke up I chugged some water and headed out for my planned tempo run. It seemed like it was going to be a tough but not impossible run.
It was just one of those runs. I had a decent warm up and then a couple of target paces. I just couldn’t get it. Mentally. Physically. I couldn’t move any faster. I had 2 sets of 12 minutes at a fast pace. The first one sucked but I made it. I took a little longer walk break than planned. Before I even started the second one I was already defeated. I was about 30 seconds off my target pace. I got back to my house after finishing a little over 6 miles and did what any normal person would do….
Yes, I know it’s ridiculous but I couldn’t help it. I was tired. I had a bad run. It was the only thing left to do.
Sure I was sore from last nights workout. Yes, I ran at 3:00, the hottest time of the day. Sure there was zero shade on my run. Oh, and I dropped my water too. I know all of these things played into my shitty run but I am still really discouraged. It is taking all my might to not email my coach a typical “holy shit I am never going to be able to do this, I suck so bad. I am the worst at running ever.” I won’t do it. No matter how bad I want to.
Despite my sucky run I had a nice afternoon with Jbone. We caught up on our day on the couch, grilled turkey burgers then went for a swim.
Did you guys check out LuluLemon.com yesterday? They had free downloadable wallpaper. My new favorite quote….

Off to bed. Hopefully I wake up feeling a little less like Boston is going to be too far out of reach. Wah
