Yesterday I went for an easy 5 mile run....but nothing about it was easy. I felt out of it, kept telling myself that I should stop, cut it short, and call it a day. What is it about running some days I can bang out 16++ with ease and other days 5 miles is a STRUGGLE?? It was drizzly raining and the plants are going crazy, I felt like the long grass was trying to grab me. One thing I noticed was 3 dead moles along the path all within 25 yards of the others.. Hmmmm.. I immediately started signing "3 Dead moles" to the tune of "3 Blind Mice," it was STUCK in my head.. URGH! Very weird..
Thanks EVERYONE for your input on my decision yesterday.. The consensus is that I should run it but easy and not to compete. This was the thought of pretty much everyone except for Amanda and Marlene who I am running Rock N Roll Seattle with. I wont compromise pacing us to an awesome finish line photo, love you guys!! I emailed the race director and will be running the FREE Green River Marathon next weekend with my friend Corie's husband, possibly Jill and maybe Amanda...and anyone who wants to come join me for a few miles. Using it as a training run and I can always cut it short if needed. So now my run this weekend is a little TBD. I am thinking of doing 18-20, will see. We are having dirt delivered so we will have a real back yard soon.. Now if the rain would STOP!!
- What are your plans for the LONG weekend??
Will be back soon with High Fives...
