Yesterday’s ten-miler was not so great. I felt sort of worn out before we even started, so I didn’t have high hopes. I don’t know how much of the crappiness was from my attitude and how much of it was my actual physical condition, but either way, it was rough. Jack had a lousy run as well. But. We did it! We had to stop for a bathroom break, multiple podcast issues, and a much-needed chocolate milk run, so it took us forever. The last three miles were probably the hardest I’ve ever done. What a far cry from last week’s nine-miler, which was pretty much my best run ever.
My no-duh learning from this run:
- Training for a half-marathon is not the best time to also be on a very calorie-restrictive diet.
- It’s not a good idea to go out the three nights before a ten mile run.
- It’s very important to make sure your podcast app is functioning properly and to have something else to listen to as a backup.
- Picking an interesting route is imperative when doing longer runs.
- Always carry chocolate milk money.
After the run we went home and completely crashed. Then we met up with friends at a St Patrick’s Day festival. Many drinks were consumed and bad food was eaten. But the proceeds went to charity, so it was all for a good cause 🙂
I’m not doing any accountability for yesterday, because I don’t feel like holding myself accountable for the indulgence. Work hard, play hard, right?
Here’s to a sunny, lazy Sunday!
