Still Trying to Get My Long Run

Now that the weekend is over I am officially not getting in my long run for the week.  I still finished the week with about 20 miles but I really wanted to get 8-9 in over the weekend.  On Saturday I came to you a little upset but I am so over it now.  I must have just been a little sensitive so early in the morning.  Anyway, I got a nice little nap had lunch and needed to mow the yard before I could go out and run again.  Plus, I had to get the shoes dry.  They were sopping wet after the workout.

I got the first two of those things done and as I was finishing mowing the yard it started to pour down rain.  I was pretty sure I was going to get struck by lightening while I was mowing.  Well, call it an excuse or whatever you want but I don't run in the rain anymore.  Not after this....

I could have gotten on the treadmill for a while but now that I have started running outside I find the treadmill extremely boring.  So I opted out of running on Saturday.  I did nothing and I mean nothing entertaining on Sunday....I had to work.  Work on Sunday afternoon really puts a wrench in the whole day.  I missed my afternoon nap, most of my cooking time, and the sheer laziness of Sunday and running around in my underpants.

So this morning I was full of energy and ready to go run.  Why shouldn't I be, the last really hard workout I had was Friday night (or Saturday morning....whatever you want to consider 5am.)  The stairs were the same as normal, not to hard not easy, just a good solid 2 miles of running up and down and up and down.  We went for a run after steps, and this morning it was a new crew.  My usual running buddy couldn't make the run today so I ran with another girl that has been running some and a completely new girl who was scared to run.  Well we did great.  We made a 5k distance in less than 40 minutes, good for her first time I thought.  She is in really good shape, but a little doubty this morning.  SEE I TOLD YOU YOU COULD DO IT.  She may hate me tomorrow for it but I don't really care!

So this week I will actually get to attend some Zumba classes, like today (hopefully) and then the Cut workout tonight.  I am going to have to take it just a little bit easy because I think I have a pulled or strained muscle in my stomach.  Until it gets me down it gets to keep going, but I don't want to hurt myself either.  But it didn't seem to hold me back to much this morning so maybe I'm just being a bit dramatic.  That would be a first, Me??!??!?!?  Dramatic?!?!?!??!

Have a good one today.....What are you going to get in for a workout today?

Keep an eye on that pulled muscle! It could be your appendix...
