Slogging through 3 on the treadmill

So, if you’ve ever worked hard in the garden all weekend, then tried to drink off the soreness with rum and bourbon, then perhaps you’ve experience a run like I had today. Something that is normally a very easy run for me turned into a struggle. I made it, though. I was seriously sweaty at the end and I felt like I was grasping at the air with my arms in an attempt to pull myself somehow to the finish. I completed the workout with some core exercises. Not great, but not horrible either.

Actual workout

5 minutes warmup

3 miles at 8:19 pace

5 minutes cool down

    Sadly, I once worked in the field on an ecology project collecting zebra muscles to test them for E. coli. I was at the collection site just down current from a sewage outlet into the ocean. So, we decided we should drink away our sorrows with gin and tonic. Then it was someone’s brilliant idea to take a swim on the reef to see the chemiluminescent fish. Yeah, a swim that should have been real easy turned into a struggle. So I do know that feeling you speak of, to this day I have a hard time snorkling without feeling a little bad. Awesome fish though.
