- Monterey Bay Half Marathon (Thank you BibRave!)- 11/12
- Oakland Turkey Trot- (Thank you BibRave!) 11/22
Another week on the road and I admit I was mentally fried. I spent the week feeling like I was fighting something and just overall very tired. I liked working in the San Diego office and the people I was working with but I missed home.
I had thought about running on the treadmill after work- I really needed to do laundry but I wasn’t feeling well after work. I went back to the hotel and just kind of zoned out.
I did laundry in the hotel laundry again and hopped on the treadmill for a bit while I was waiting on the wash load. Seriously less than impressed with those washing machines. And my mileage. I was also feeling sorry for myself missing the Kip Moore concert back home.
Wednesday- Mes de Mas
Well, kind of. I was modifying things so as to not sound like a herd of elephants to hotel room below me. Then I was about 20 minutes in when I had a repeat of Sunday and was running to bathroom. Yay.
Thursday/ Friday- Nothing
My stomach was an asshat for the next 2 days. Fun. I kept a smile on my face and just kept working.
I left San Diego early in the morning and arrived home in the afternoon. Home! After laundry and some errands, I was so happy to sleep in my bed.
Sunday- 3.1 miles
I slept in. I did wake up and follow the New York Marathon on Twitter but I did not get out of bed. 😛 I headed out in the afternoon for a short run, I knew I should probably do a long run but didn’t want to. Could someone tell me where the fall weather is? It was 85*- why? This run was not easy, it felt so much harder than I had hoped. I guess after a week of slacking that was to be expected.
5.1 miles for the week. Go ahead, laugh- I’m laughing too. If I travel like this again, I will be better prepared.
How was your week?

Hopefully some time at home and sleeping in your own bed will help you feel better before Monterey Bay!
Oh my goodness- I’ve been so tired! I fall asleep watching tv at night and I fall asleep on my lunches, it’s just sad!
