If you Follow me on Dailymile HERE then you already know about my wet, cold, sore and sick run Yesterday. If not here is the quick and dirty report:
I had so many excuses not to run today:
-Busy with work so had little time
-Rainy and Windy
-Did not have the right gear for the conditions
-Stiff neck, sore body, tired and head cold
-Really needed a BREAK
For those excuses I have 5 answers:
I was supposed to do 8 miles with 1.5 warmup and cool down, I did not have time due to work obligations so instead I just did the 5 tempo miles. My tempo pace is not too tough for me, but I will really test it at the Mercer half on 3/21. This run was ROUGH, super cold and very wet. But I survived. Now trying to warm up and dry out my sneakers.
This week has been the worst week of running that I can remember....but you know what?? I still got it done as best I could and for that I am deserve a self-five!! Long run tomorrow with Fleet Feet 18 miles. My little Running buddy Zoe is broken so I guess I will be making friends, running pickup line possibilities"You run here often?" "What's your pace?" LOL!!
