How I wished you hadn’t died on me so long ago. Not that I miss it for my running but because I want to go to the cafe to do work and listen to music. Sure I could bring my computer but that’s so much more effort haha.
Anyway another chilly morning. Another morning of frozen hands. Seems like I’m a broken record in that deptartment. And will be for another few days I think.
But I gutted out some miles in the bitter cold yet again. 8 to be exact. Like yesterday I started off strong but faded a bit by the end. Nothing terrible or significant but fading. Yuck. I want my negative splits please! I shouldn’t complain too much as my pace was decent I just want to be able to hold onto my go-get-em pace for longer. Maybe some tempo is in order tmrw or soonish. My legs felt fine after yesterdays longer run but maybe they really are tired from the Thanksgiving feast of running and that’s where the fading is coming in.
Certainly my back is. I don’t know if I mentioned this before here but I have two bulging discs in my lower back. Nothing serious/major but they’re there. And I have PT exercises to keep the back pain away and keep everything in balance with my ab and back muscles. I think I overdid the running and threw that balance out of whack because for the past two nights I’ve had terrible back pain that’s been keeping me up! No bueno. Guess I’m going to have to be extra diligent for the next few weeks.
Also need to be extra diligent in my quest for a Boston plan. Training starts December 28th! Why did I not know this before yesterday?! Why did I think that I had until late January for training to start?! Oh man. Gotta get my butt in gear. And Lacey my area is flat flat flat so I might take you up on that offer to run in some hilly areas with you 🙂
Okay short post today because I have to get some work done. Serious work. I have “el mesa de espanol” tonight and I need to make up for the time I’m going to miss there now. And EarlyRunner: I just about choked on my food when I read your comment yesterday! Hilarious!
Thanks for the calming thoughts and words yesterday about my future. I guess in my heart I know everything will work out but it’s really hard to trust that when nothing is set in stone. And I’m a chick who likes to know everything years in advance haha.
Here’s a fun poem that EatMoveLove posted recently.
And this is hilarious to end with
