I didn’t plan on taking so many days off last week but that’s what happened.
I started the week off with some lingering unpleasant-ness post Napa Valley Half. I.E what has since been dubbed the second worst chafe of my life. Possibly tied for first. It hurt to walk for days. I tried pants, I tried dresses… nope to it all.
Thursday came around and I still hadn’t run and I was going stir crazy. I changed and headed out for a few miles. I had missed my sunsets. However, running was still not a good idea, haha! So a hobbling, 2.5 ish miles.
Friday and Saturday kind of snowballed in a less than stellar way and not lots of sleep was had. I was hoping for a rain filled, relaxing day but that was not the case.
Sunday morning dawned all too early but I knew before I even got out of bed that I wasn’t running. The last few weeks have been a little crazy and the upcoming few weeks are set to be equally crazy so I took a day to do nothing. I mean I wasn’t completely lazy- I did some errands, rearranged some furniture and took a power nap.
So yep, less than 3 miles for the week. But I can walk now so yay!
