You guys are great…thanks so much for all the encouraging comments re: my less than stellar run yesterday. I knew I was sore before I even rolled out of bed, so I was definitely working it yesterday even though it felt like poo!
I really do need to be honest with myself here. There’s no question why yesterday’s run was crappy. I was slacking in my training during the week. I know I promised myself that I would listen to my body, and I’ve done more of that than I ever have before. But I’m either taking this whole new concept too far, or not far enough.
Here’s how it seems to go: I push myself too hard one day, then I have to take it easy for a few days to recover. Then I get back to it, push too hard, have to rest, repeat. You get the picture. But with the race looming ever closer, I haven’t been willing to cut back the way I should when I miss a run. I guess I just really need to keep in mind that if I keep this pattern up, there very likely could be no race for me. I would rather have a poor performance (read: slow) than no performance at all.
Ok enough of that!
Breakfast was an odd one this morning. When I first got up I wasn’t all that hungry, but didn’t want to wait too long to eat, so I grabbed half of a cranberry orange English muffin and some sugar free orange marmalade.
Then a little while later I saw that fabulous babka just sitting there lonely on the counter. So I heated up a slice- oh warm gooey heaven in a bread.
By then I wasn’t hungry for oatmeal. I threw a pack of the instant in my bag to take with me in case I got hungry later. I doubt what I’ve had so far is going to keep me full for long 🙂
As I was sitting outside on the porch eating fro yo in my flip flops yesterday, I realized summer was just around the corner. It may not seem like that today, but it’ll be here before we know it. And that means……
Triathlon season is coming!!
And training starts today! New plan will be revealed later today 🙂
