Less than stellar

Well, I had my first crappy run last night, but there were lots of strikes against me before I even stepped foot on the treadmill. I ate more dinner than I had intended, so I was still pretty full by the time I ran plus I wore my sons hiking boots all day yesterday because of the snow, so my feet were already a little tired from lugging those around all day.  I had my running shoes tied too tight, and my socks were bunching up inside my shoes – that is sooo irritating!! I was wearing my Spanx because every pair of undies that I own were in the washing machine – great for smoothing the bumps, but not so great for running. I had on only one sports bra so I had to deal with the girls bouncing all over the place and the music on my radio just seemed slow and unmotivating. The run was hard and I really really really wanted to quit after about 5 minutes, but luckily the Drill Sergeant was with me and she totally would not let me give up – I can tell she is going to be a thorn in LazyGirl’s side! So I finished the run/walk – 32 minutes total and usually I am pumped after I run, but this time I was just tired.
I know I will be better prepared next time and it will be awesome when I run again. My next run is planned for Saturday – I think I need a rest tonight.
That’s all I got for today – have a great weekend y’all!

    I’m impressed you didn’t give up – that’s awesome!

    That is great that you didn’t give up. I know your area has a St. Paddy’s day 5k, you should do it. You can run/walk it. I wished I were still there, so we could train together.

    Nice job! You got it done, even if it wasn’t perfect! I hope it goes better next time!

    Yay for you for keeping it going. There will be runs that suck, and that’s when you know you’re a Runner–when you run the run anyway.
