I’m grouchy today. After a fabulous Yasso 800 workout on Wednesday, yesterday’s run in the park was lousy. It was supposed to feel easy and it didn’t. I Today’s run on the treadmill felt better, but not great. I have a 5k tomorrow morning and I’m feeling discouraged. I chose the treadmill because I knew if I tried the park again, I’d push too much to prove I don’t suck, and I needed to be easy on myself the day before a race. Or as easy as I’m capable — I still probably pushed pace too much today.
I hate that the lousy run affects me more than the awesome one did.
I’ve got a tight right calf, so I’ve been foam rolling it. Nothing dire, but I don’t want it to get worse. I can’t believe that in two weeks I’ll be in DC for the Nike Half Marathon. Check out my new Newton Distance Elite Ironman Special Editions. Cute, no? I have no intention of ever doing an Ironman, but I liked the color of these better than the regular Distance Elites. These sneaks are by far my favorite running shoes. So comfortable and lightweight.
I don’t feel like figuring out what’s for dinner, but if I don’t, no one else will. I know, tough life. I just want to loaf on the sofa and feel sorry for myself.
Just one of those days.
