31 Days Until Race Day

I love running (I really do!) but not every run is wonderful. A less-than-ideal run can occur for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to:

  • Imperfect weather (heat, humidity, cold, etc.)
  • Starting too late/when you're already tired
  • Eating crazy stuff earlier in the day
  • Side stitch
  • Bathroom issues
  • Just feeling weird/off

Today, it was a combination of the first four (a bit cold tonight), so I decided around mile 2.5 that I was going to adjust my plan. I ended up going for 5 miles at an easy pace, which was tomorrow's workout. Now, I'm going to do today's workout tomorrow. If I go at lunchtime, the sun will be out, so it won't be dark or as cold as my attempt tonight. 

Something else worth noting is that I was unusually tired today. I also had no caffeine all day, and I think the weekend and grief are catching up to me. I took time to relax tonight (FaceTimed Tricia, drank hot chocolate, read a book for pleasure) and am heading to bed now. Fortunately, tomorrow is Friday!

Something that made today great: I was able to attend a staff meeting for the first time in a few months! 

Time I woke up: 8:45 am
