The .20 mile run
Uh, I kinda feel really stupid right now. After writing yesterday’s motivational post, I wasn’t feeling a run, but forced myself out to the trail anyway. Every time I do that, I end up pounding out the miles and getting in a nice workout.
Folks, I made it .20 of a mile and called it quits. Point 20. It was cold and my new Lulu top was clearly made for yoga, not running and I just felt off.
I was so disappointed, I’ve never done this before, I don’t ever just give up, but something about it just didn’t feel right.
Turns out I felt like I was coming down with the flu bug Mike had earlier this week. I’m glad I didn’t push it, but I still feel so weird.
Then I went to the grocery store and bought 3 tubs of butter. So not joking. I was walking to the checkout and thought to myself so you run .20 miles, call it quits and go buy butter. lol
Actually there is only 1 store I know of close by that carries my favorite brand, so I always stock up.
The rest of the afternoon & evening was spend on the couch talking to my mom on the phone with a fever, sore throat and a grumpy attitude. Ha!
That was taken 2 hours after I took Advil.
At least I had Bam & Dredd to hang out with.
Bam is having a slumber party with his buddy Dredd this weekend while his mom & dad are on vacation. He’s such a sweetie I might dog nap him. 😉
I went to Trader Joe’s for a few groceries after.
So there ya have it. Do as I say, not as I do mmmkay.
For some crazy reason I woke up feeling fine this morning. So I don’t know what’s going on, but I’ll take it.
Now I want you to go out and run for me! Have a great weekend!!
Make me feel better, tell me about your last crappy workout.
Anyone racing this weekend? I want to hear about it!
