Ugly run



I had a rest day scheduled for today; I should have stuck to the schedule.

Silly me decided to pack my gym bag on a whim this morning for a run at lunch. When I went to the ladies room to change and discovered I had forgotten my sports bra (again!) I should have gone right back to my desk. But no, I decided to grin and bear it. I'll spare you the details, but it was highly uncomfortable.

Other reasons this was an ugly run:

1. It's HOT today. It was high noon, not a cloud in the sky and felt like almost 30 degrees C (it was probably closer to 26). It's going to take some time adjusting to summer temps again.

2. I didn't have water. In this weather, I need water for even a dinky little run.

3. After 9 consecutive days off, today was my 3rd day running in a row, on top of softball last night. My legs are extremely tired and a little sore.

4. I didn't eat any carbs after lunch yesterday, unless you count a Swiss Chalet roll. Definitely contributed to the lack of energy.

So I trudged through 4KM (miraculously coming in <6:00/KM) and the moral of the story is: I should have just taken a damn rest today! I'm not moving any more than necessary tomorrow!

Whoa, the no bra should have been the sign, LOL!

You did it, but not too sure if it helped in the 'long run'....rest up and take care of yourself
