Let me back peddle a bit.
I have been taking a break from my computer, kind of. Sometimes technology just boggs me down and I need to step away. I haven’t updated my facebook status since I can’t remember when??? Maybe Friday? I wont go back and recap the whole weekend, I’ll just jump in at today.
I have a head cold. What the heck? Why can’t I just get healthy and STAY healthy? And I include injury in there too…But anyway, I have this head cold but my body feels ok. I did my normal Monday morning paperwork and finished just in time to roll out and head to 12 o’clock spin.
I pulled into the empty gym parking lot and discovered the gym is closed until the 13th. Lame. I decided to do a quick run instead. So at noon o’clock I drove to the track and meandered out of my car, jogged a lap, then stretched. I decided I would do 4 x 1200 yd intervals. Off I went on my first lap. When I neared the 400 yd (end of the first lap) I hit end on my lap button and convinced myself I would do a ladder, 400/800/1200/1200/800/400…yeah that is what I’ll do. So I walked 200 yds and hit start for my second interval.At the 400 yd mark I again hit end on my watch. Lame. Ok, so no go on the ladder plan. I decided I would do 5 x 400 yds instead. I walked another 200 yd and hit start on my watch. By the end of the third lap I was tired, sweating buckets, thirsty, and just plain fatigued. I had no gas. I was spent. Pooped. Wiped out. Done. I jogged another lap to cool down but it was about 87 degrees outside and humid. Yucky, gross humidity. It will be the death of me this summer. So there you have it. That was the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad run day.
I know my running routine is going to need a serious overhauling here soon. I will have to start getting up to run way before the sun shines. I hate that. Or resolve to be a summer treadmill runner. I actually just almost threw up in my mouth thinking about both of those. Either way, the point is that things are going to have to change and soon when it comes to my running. The first step in making a change is seeing a need for change. Right?
After my failed run I decided to hit one of the other gyms to do some weights. I’d like to do more weightlifting but I just don’t have time right now. So I got in about 45 min of picking up heavy things and putting them back down. I was going to go swim afterwards but decided against it. There is always tomorrow…if all goes as planned.
Sorry for the boring post but I am kind of happy to have a lull in the excitement. No new bruises to report, only shrinking ones!
