Last night I didn't go to run club. I was in hermit mode as I like to call it. I just wanted to stay home on a rainy day and read a book. So that is what I did. I am sure the fact that I go back to work on Thursday has something to do with my hermit ways.
Now I didn't just sit on the couch and do a bunch of nothing. I did end up running 4 miles in my hood. This weekend I have a 10 mile race, so I can't just sit around and read books all day. :) I'm so frustrated with running. I feel like it should be feeling easier, but it has been one big suck fest lately. I feel like I am running through peanut butter. Ugh. It wouldn't be bad if I liked peanut butter, but I can't stand the stuff. I'd rather run through some nice cool ice cream. :) Not sure I could get any slower than what I am running right now. Well it has to get better eventually. I am sure it didn't help taking a week off. Today I have 7 miles on the calendar. I was going to wake up early and run, but I looked and saw 100% humidity and thought better of it. The humidity is supposed to leave this afternoon...so I will put the miles in later today/this evening.
Yesterday's run was a very humid one. At the end of the run I was dripping in sweat. I don't think there was a spot on me that wasn't covered in sweat. Oh the joys of summer running.
