Have you ever hit the wall before you even put your running cloths on?! I was dragging a$$ this afternoon and totally felt like I not only hit the wall but bashed my head in on it and broke all my bones.
I didn’t sleep very well last night, I also had a drink last night, and I know I didn’t drink enough water today, plus my leg’s were sore from Saturday, and Sunday’s runs. Maybe that all contributed to it, maybe not. But, I still laced up and headed to Fleet Feet for the group run.
Running is a funny thing because I felt like crap mentally and was feeling like I didn’t fuel properly before the run yet turned in a record mile on the Garmin and ran significantly faster than my 5K PR pace! A 26 ish minute 2.87 mile run. And, I still came in dead last for the 3 mile group.
Whatever. The only real competition is with myself and my mind. I may be last, but I’m running some of the fastest miles I have ever run, so I’m happy.
Still had some painful hot spots rubbing on my feet. Got another pair of socks in the mail today, so will test them out tomorrow and see what happens. I wish I could find some Tuff Skin locally, none of the stores around here have it, so will have to order some online and see if that helps at all.
Not sure if part of my problem today is I’m feeling like a worn out mommy. Sky being sick for so long is hard on her and us, and I can tell I’m not handling things as well as I would like. Good thing I have a girls weekend away this weekend…I feel like I really need it. Best part is once I’m back Sky and I can get back to her normal schedule and resume play to learn and her play date with Reagan!
She gave her big girl bed a try at nap time today, at her request. It lasted for maybe 3 minutes and then she was back in the crib. She insisted on having all her favorite things in bed with her…
