Nice and overcast which made it bearable.
I am not gonna lie...This morning when I woke up and just 'thought' about running today, I wanted to give up like Lauren trying to talk sense into Heidi on not having another boob surgery to get them to a size H. You know..."you know, for (H)eidi. Whatevs.
Seriously. That's how I felt. So during our weekly meeting at work, my mind was racing...not like racing as in running...because even my mind is tired of running, let alone racing :o) ... So anyway, I set about (in my head) trying to come up with how I could handle these next 2 days before my long run on Saturday (which is 13 miles).
I could just run 1 mile today, 1 mile tomorrow. Or I could stick to the plan and do 4-5 today, 1 tomorrow. Or I could not run at all and totally lie about it on here. : p
So after the meeting I got onto mapmyrun.com as I figured maybe a new route/loop would help me and I certainly think it will! I liked my new route the other night so I wondered if I ran part of that, how much mileage would that be? Whoop! 2 miles! Well, 1.97 miles, but I ran past the starting point just to make sure I got my 2 miles in :) Average pace: 9:58
So that's what I did tonight. 2 miles. Not quite what I should have done, but more than just what I really wanted to do (which was ZERO)...
AND I then changed into my 'ok its cute enough' one piece swimsuit (for training) and popped into the swimming pool for some laps!
30 min of lap swimming. It bears repeating: I am in much better shape on the swimming thing this year! Makes me happy!
I's no quitta.
