I skipped my run this morning. My Saturday run.
As I lay in bed (at 8:30) enjoying the fresh breeze through the open window and the comfort of my sheets, I thought to myself, "I should really get up. I really need to do a run."
But I couldn't do it.
Too tired. Me want sleepy.
What have I done?
I've been so tired the past week or so. I've done my 14,16,18, 20 mile runs. I need to do at least another 18 and 20 before the marathon. Do you think I'm ok? (this is my 2nd marathon) I try to listen to my body and this week it's been saying, "Get some rest". I moved a month ago, kids started school, I work part time... life has been busy. Last Saturday was the Hobble Creek 1/2 where I really ran hard. So this week I planned to do three 7 milers and take it easy before returning to the regular program next week. What I ended up doing was rest Monday, 3.5 hill workout Tuesday, rest Wednesday, 5.5 tempo run Thursday, Yoga/Abs Friday, then nothing today! I tried to tell myself I would run later, but who am I kidding? I hate running in the afternoon and I have a company picnic that starts at 5pm. Midnight run perhaps?
Tell me I haven't made a huge mistake. Am I hitting a wall? I normally can't wait to get out the door. I happily set my alarm every Saturday for 6 am, but I couldn't do it today. I am trying to get some extra iron in case I am anemic or something. Feeling so sluggish. Any tips or suggestions?
