As I Hang My Head In Shame...
I'm really kicking myself right now and before you ask "why" I'm going to tell you... I'm ashamed to say that somehow I let SIX whole days pass without getting even one tiny run in! I just sort of fell short on those wonderful days off with Robert and then could never get my engine running again... Ooooooooh, but let me say that, I paid dearly last night... It was aweful...I got home from work at 5:30 p.m., kissed the hubby hello while catching up on each others days then determined that it was time to get back out there. By this time, it was about 6:30 so hubby and I threw on our running shorts and shoes and hopped into his truck for the short drive to my spot. I knew it was going to be rough but DANG! Even before I started, I was sporting a nice little headache and a knee that kept chinking so I was going to be happy to just finish 2 miles, let alone going for more...To top it all off, PMS is setting in by this time and so EVERYTHING was irritating the crap out of me i.e: swinging ponytail that kept hitting me on my neck, sweat dripping down the side of my face, the sound of my
gasping for air uneven breathing, the ruts I kept having to dodge, and my need to pee so bad but wouldn't go because of the HUMONGO lizard that was guarding the restroom door....Insert crossed arms and pouty face here...I honestly hadn't been keeping track of how many days had passed, so when I logged my shameful 1.70 miles into Running Ahead, I was shocked when I saw that little graph bar so far away from my last run! I started counting, 18.104.22.168.5....My heart fell at day 5...But no wonder I had such a hard time of it! Wow, I'm never doing that again because I hate how much I hated myself for not running, and ultimately hobbling my progress like this because of it...Watch while I hang my head in shame...The good new is that I learned a lesson that will hopefully keep me on the right track, sometime to come:p Thank you for listening to me bitch moan. I am off to do some sit ups and push ups...Maybe this peace offering will help:p
