9 mile run - FAIL!
Friday I decided to get my 9 mile run out of the way. Boy look how proactive I am being. So yeah I ran 2 miles and stopped. I was tired and just couldn't do it.
No problem K and I were going to go to Occoquan regional park and run our 9 miles (or close to it) yeah 2.5 miles and I gave up. There are a lot of hills in that freakin park! We did end up walking some and the days total was 4.64 miles. Boy I am just feeling horrible. I know it is mostly mental (or at least it better be by this time!) I am really having a hard time getting past the running block. Not sure if it is because of going back to school or what. I came home after our "run" and slept for 4 hours...and then I slept that night too. CFS is that you?? (ok I haven't been tired for 6 months like the link states but still..) That is a lot of sleeping!
Sunday I got dressed and laced up the shoes and took off! That's right today is the day for my 9 miler..I mean my 3 miler..failed again! I was going to try again later in the day at the gym but K was having a cookout so I couldn't go late right??
We are going to attempt (I mean I am going to definitely) run tonight. I am much better at running in the evening than in the morning. We are going to run track. I know boring! But I figure it is flat (so no excuses about the hills) and there are 4 of us going so I don't have to try to keep up with anyone. I can just go at my own slow pace. Fingers crossed that this works. I am also going to change up my playlist. Maybe some knew tunes will keep my feet moving. I did 7 last week so I should be able to do 9 this week...I just would rather lay on the couch. I have not been in the swing of the whole workout out thing since starting back to work. I feel like this has be worse this year than in previous years. Although it could just feel that way b/c normally I do not have a training schedule to follow at the beginning of school...who knows. I just wish I could feel all into my workouts and running soon...
