Training Assignment: Run 35 minutes
My body was not a happy runner this morning. Maybe I'm worn out from the 7-mile group run on Saturday. Or maybe from sprinting around during my soccer game yesterday. Maybe my body was letting me know that it was miffed about having to run on the treadmill at the gym.
In any case, I did the 35 minutes assigned by my training coach, but I was so tired. I felt like I did the whole run wondering how much longer I had to go. That only makes it seem even more laborious.
Even now as I write this, I feel worn out. I think I'm going to take a day off tomorrow- which is supposed to be a running day- and run on Wednesday instead. Wednesday is supposed to be a "rest" day but I think I need that rest now!
As an extra bonus, it's supposed to stop raining by Wednesday so I will be able to do my run outside. I'm also hoping my bruised foot and blood blister I got when a 19 year-old girl stomped on my 38 year-old foot during soccer will be be less irritating by then. That little whipper-snapper!
So, I'm ending this blog now. And I'm too lazy to find a motivational quote for the bottom of my post. Do you have a favorite running quote? Maybe you can share it in the comment section while I lie in front of the fire like a tired, old dog.
