and it is not relieved by exercise.
Today I have nothing clever to blog about.
I feel exhausted. I think I am still catching up from my whirl wind of a weekend. I just want to crawl into my bed and stay there until I feel like getting up. And my throat hurts, not bad but scratchy, the kind of scratchy I get when I haven’t had enough sleep.
Today I considered running 4 miles to make up for yesterday’s cut-short run but I was happy with my (S…L…O…W….) 3 miles. I was babying my Hot Spot and ran at about a 9:24 pace. I hate Thursday’s runs because I usually get going right after I have spent an hour teaching water aerobics and I feel so tired right from the get go. But I had AN the RB by my side so we ran together, side by side on dreadmills.
This evening I had a severe, and I mean SEVERE, case of the cranks. I have no idea why. Maybe I need chocolate. I haven’t had chocolate in like 3 days. What do you do when you get a case of the cranks? How do you not take it out on those you love (i.e. small kids with mohawks, husbands who are all of a sudden THERE, and dogs who drool and slobber)?
Tomorrow is a rest day then 10 on Saturday! I think I have suckered a friend into running with me! She is training for her first half (the You Go Girl) here in September and it works out perfectly that she needs 10 miles on Saturday too! So we will see what happens!!!
Oh and this was post 101! WOW! I feel like I should have done something fun, like throw a party! I’ll see what I can come up with for a party post!
