Welcome to the holiday weekend. I hope you all have a wonderful and safe holiday. Don't you love holidays so you don't have to go workout....oh wait....that's right....we still workout. When your marathon training there are few days off and they are scheduled in advance.
Yesterday morning I got up and went to what is now being referred to as Boot Camp. I didn't get to stay for the whole thing because I have to be at church early. I was extremely excited that I got to leave. My body was sore and tired from the race on Saturday.
Then I figured I might as well go get the run over with this morning. I will get to go back to sleep this morning and wake up again like I got to sleep late on this holiday. Maybe with a few more hours of sleep I can get rid of some of this soreness.
I am still on the lookout for the 18 wheeler that ran through my house on Saturday night and ran over me, then reversed and ran over me again. I was asleep so I am pretty sure this happened multiple times with the way my body hurts.
I could have easily been talked out of my run this morning but we went anyway. I did the steps today for the first time in a week with very little pain in my leg but I could tell it had been a while. I was sucking wind after the 2nd time around and never really caught my breath. Then we went to run. In all fairness I should probably call it a walk with a few run breaks. We were both worn out pretty good. We ran about 6 miles this morning overall and once we got into the run it wasn't as hard as the start had been. Normally we run at least 1.5-2 miles before our first walk break....today we made it to half a mile and stopped and walked. But after that we ran most of the rest of it.
I probably wont be back again today. I am going to try to enjoy the rest of this fabulous holiday from the comfort of my couch.
And while I am thinking about it I just have to give a little shout out. At the race on Saturday morning I had a lady come up to me and tell me she was a fan of my blog. I just love it when I find new people out there that are reading and following along. So, HI Emily! Thanks for reading.
