As promised, I gave my body a break for the last week. I think I ran two three mile runs in the last 8 days. And they were far from fast.
Today, I planned to get back on track. Unfortunately, a rain storm and a problem with my contacts made outdoor running difficult, so I hit the treadmill. Beyond the fact that I had to wear my glasses (which was highly annoying), it just didn’t feel that good. I did manage to run 3.5 miles in 32 minutes, which isn’t horrid, but I was DONE at the end of my run. I ran that fast for 13 miles not that long ago!
If the stars align, I’ll be able to wear my contacts tomorrow and Jones will have soccer practice and I’ll be able to knock out 6 miles while he’s at practice. If the stars don’t align, well, I have a lot of drinking planned this weekend and I’ll get back on the wagon next week LOL.
