How is it that a 12 mile run can sometimes be harder than a 20? Am I the only one? So, obviously I am talking about today. I felt like crap almost the entire run. My legs never really felt like they were in a rhythm, I was tired, and I didn't feel like talking. Thanks, Suzie for staying with me for a while. You are doing so awesome! You are so going to rock St. George!!
Here are my ideas for why my run stunk:
a. I knew my sweet husband was at home with a 4 month old who could quite possibly be screaming the entire 2 hours. (and since he just had surgery on Monday, he would not be able to do anything about it. He is stuck in bed and using crutches.)
b. I ran 6 miles yesterday, a little faster than normal. (When am I going to learn that my Saturday runs go much better if I run short and slow on Friday?)
c. I only ran 3 times this week, and last week I ran 6.
d. I didn't do acupuncture this week due to taking care of my hubby.
Hmmmm....are all of you curious to see how acupuncture helps me at St. George? I know I am!! Hope all of your runs went better.
Bryce was awake for a little while, but went back to sleep. So, I am really glad I pushed through this yucky run.
