Oh lord, it’s been one of those weeks.
Ok, truth- I wrote that first line as an intro for a Ramblin On post on Friday but it never got any further than that line. Oops.
Last week was an odd one. Lights on and off, literally. Brain all over the place. Chopping my hair off. Binge watching Locke and Key. Finally deep cleaned my car. Then cleaned my closet too.
Monday- 1.65 miles I headed out for a run still feeling the irritation from the previous days long run. I didn’t anticipate the cold and the insane wind. I was so cold and I hadn’t packed clothes for that. After a cold few minutes and texts from mother trying to convince me to meet her for dinner- I caved.
I’m sure I did something on Tuesday but can’t recall what. Oh- I cut off my hair!
Wednesday- Yep, all blank here.
Thursday- 2.5 ish miles I would have liked to run more but this run was the final nail in the coffin for my pink Ghost 11’s. I’ve been feeling extra achy in them the last few weeks so I ran Sunday’s long run on my new Ghost 12’s and put the pink ones back on for this run. Nope. The shoes are dunzo.
On Saturday I headed out in the early afternoon for a short run. I was going to dinner with my mother so I kept it short and sweet with 5K. The only bad thing about this run was that I was wearing a cute new pair of full pants and it was 70*! I was melting!
That previously mentioned Saturday dinner did not sit well with me and wreaked havoc on my sleep. When my alarm went off on Sunday to run I almost threw the phone across the room. Instead I went back to sleep. I ran some errands and then dozed off a bit. I was thisclose to bailing on my run entirely but decided to just go out and see what my body was willing to do. I got in 7.3 miles not the original planned 9. I was slow and sluggish but it wasn’t horrible. I was glad I went out and at least tried. Although my watch only shows 6 miles. I had a pause/ unpause moment when I stopped to snap the above pick. Doh!
So the miles weren’t great but I did move 4 of the 7 days. 14.8 miles for the week.
