On Monday, I lost steam towards the end of the day. The migraine from the previous weekend finally eased around 4 on Monday. I had lost the desire to do anything at all.
I asked my coworkers if I should run on Monday or Tuesday. Their answer? Both.
Monday- 3.3 ish miles
I headed out for a run just like they said. I kept the pace nice and easy and it felt pretty good. If you see my Strava- it looks really easy as I had a wardrobe malfunction. My sports bra came undone! I didn’t want to just stop on a dark street so I tried to fix it while walking and not flashing any passing cars, it took way longer than if I had stopped. Ha!
Tuesday- 3 miles
They said to run, so I ran. There was an unbelievable sunset so I probably spent more time gawking than running.
I had planned this as a rest day so it was good timing that my stomach decided to be an asshat.
I had planned on running on Thursday, packed my clothes and everything. But in my rush to get out the door in the morning, tripping over my cat and texting a coworker calling in sick, I forgot to grab my running shoes. Doh!
A migraine had rolled in on Friday afternoon and was still present when I woke up on Saturday. I had to work in the morning but I was hoping it would ease up as the day went on. It didn’t but I still managed to be productive at work and then went down to SLO to enjoy the 70 something degree weather and spend money on running gear. Like I need more, ha!
The weather on Sunday morning was cold with 95% humidity, nope. However when I was running with 20-30mph winds that afternoon, I slightly regretted that choice. That and this run kind of sucked. I ran it at what should have been an easy pace but it felt so damned hard. So hard. I got a little emotionally frustrated at the end and may have said a few choice words with some watery eyes. I know it’s all my fault but it’s damn irritating. Still, 8 miles done.
14.2 miles for the week. Stronger than previous weeks but still a long, long way to go.
