I didn’t do it. Glass half empty.
I have not run in six days. Six. Oy, I feel like crap. It’s a vicious cycle. I don’t work out, I feel like crap. I feel like crap, I don’t work out.
Yeah, I know, working out will make me feel better. I tell myself that now and at 4:00 this afternoon, but try telling me that at 5:00 in the morning after 6 1/2 hours of sleep. I tend to play mind games with myself. I look at the clock to see what time it is when I go to sleep…10:30. SO when I wake up at 5:00 I tell myself that I need more sleep because I will be too tired to function at work if I get up now. I could wake up at 5:30 (with 7 hours of sleep) and I would be fine. But I don’t do that. I reset my alarm for 6:15. Fail.
Because I haven’t run in six days I am worried about my long run tomorrow. I am supposed to run 11 miles. I did 10 miles last Saturday but haven’t run since. Maybe I’ll cut down to 9 miles… I’m
kind of freaking out now because my half is in less than a month and I’m having this major lack-of-running meltdown. Oh jeebus. I’m not going to make it. I figure that I’m going to disregard the rest of my training plan (hahaha, like I really followed it from the beginning…) and just do what I have to do. As long as I can run 12 miles two weeks before the half, I’ll be fine. Hell, I guess even if I can run 10 miles, I’ll be fine – I can get by on adrenaline for the last 3.1. It’s not like I’m going for a PR.I’ve only run one half anyway.
Have a wonderful weekend and if you’re training for something, hopefully you’re having much more success with your endeavor than I am. 🙂
