Not the best run ever

I woke this morning feeling very, very tired.  I think I slept pretty well, but I was wiped out.  I made it to the gym and felt fine during my warmup.  As soon as I started running, I knew it wasn’t going to be fun.  I had to take frequent deep breaths.  I had no rhythm.  My legs were sore.  I had to take a walk break at 1.5 miles.  Then another at 2.25 miles.  Finally, I hit the cool down button on the treadmill at 2.68 miles.  Pretty disappointing.

Planned workout

8 minutes warm up

3 miles at 9:00 pace

5 minutes cool down

Actual workout

  1. I hate runs like that. But honestly, it’s oddly comforting to know that better runners have bad days, too. When you’re really slow, it’s easy to believe that everyone just jumps out of bed full of energy every day. bg
