Yesterday marked 100 days till the half marathon. I also had the worst.run.ever.
Seriously? An easy, quick run gave me that much trouble?? I am beyoooond irritated, disappointed, and scared. I’m not a beginner here, I shouldn’t be running like one.
After I barely finished, I got out of the gym as soon as possible. The urge to start sobbing uncontrollably was much too strong. I immediately starting thinking about the factors that caused such a horrible result.
Not only am I training for two races, I am trying to work on my speed. Losing a little weight and speed intervals will help me with that. I increased my pace on Tuesday and felt great. I also increased the pace yesterday – WRONG. Too soon, must get adjusted to the pace I set Tuesday before moving on.
I also felt crampy (or crappy) and tight. Didn’t let my dinner digest enough before starting up, another no no. A giant mug of green tea prior to running fast probably was also not the best idea.
I did everything wrong and got appropriately punished. drat!
Live and Learn.
I’ll be back at it Saturday.
