Comments: The stupid weather alarm went off last night at 1am: Severe Thunderstorm watch, then again at 4am: Severe Thunderstorm warning *sigh*…then at 4:30am the storm rolled through. So much for running at home, so much for getting some good sleep!
I felt really sluggish at work, but knew that the temps would be in the 90’s come lunch time so I went running as soon as I got there. Something just felt off, so I decided to let my body be my guide and run as far and fast as it could handle. Side stiches set in immediatley *yay!*. But after about a mile or so everything fell into place and I was able to run a little faster then Tuesday! (Again, no water, no GU)
I kept putting this mental image of a strong runner in my head and tried to imitate that feeling/posture. It worked most of the time, but I was pretty drained coming back to work. I am glad I didn’t just hop on the elliptical rider though.
Weightlifting tonight and only 4 miles tomorrow. I LOVE fall back weeks!
