If a runner doesn't run on National Running Day, is she still a runner?
I really didn't want to run yesterday. My legs were still tired, I was getting out of work kind of late, and 10 miles just felt like a lot of running when I'd really rather sit on my bum and eat cake and watch tv.
But I ran. And it kind of sucked, and it took 3 or 4 miles to really warm up, but I ran.
My legs were tired. My feet kind of still hurt (that's new, and wtf, feet?). My favorite sports bra is now too big, and chafes - I knew this, but I didn't want to believe it, so I thought I'd try it again. Mistake.
10 miles total, 8 at MGP.
Goal pace felt totally easy, even on pissed off, tired legs. While no one was in the gym with me, I sang along - out loud - to my iPod. Logic = if I can sing, I'm not working too hard.
We'll ignore that I'm still playing all Lemonheads, all the time. Still.
When I got home, I calculated that I'd run 51 miles in the last 7 days, including Yasso 800's for the first time, a 5k PR, and a PDR at 22 miles.
Well, no shit I'm tired and my legs hate me.
So today, National Running Day or not, I'm not running. It's a rest day, the end.
That's really all I've got. Oh, also, I woke up this morning, showered, and decided to hack 6 inches off my hair. You can't even tell. It's like a neverending stretch of hair. WTF, head. That's really it. The end.
