So if we’re going to talk about the fabulous runs, it’s only fair to talk about the crappy runs too, right? Because I know I’m not the only one out here who occasionally has a really sucky run. Like Saturday’s.
It should have been GREAT. It was a beautiful running day. Warm and sunny. No wind. Almost nobody on our closest little trail. Perfect. But the run? Spectacular fail.
For the first time EVER, we bailed. Ran the loop once (we were planning on at least twice), then walked to the car and drove home. Seriously.
So what went wrong? Well, as in most of life, operator error caused my problems.
I knew I shouldn’t have enjoyed that second glass (maybe bottle) of wine Friday night. And I should have gone to bed and to sleep several hours earlier.
I dressed much too warmly. Apparently the temperature changed between the time I dressed and the 30 minutes later when I was actual hit the trail.
And maybe I should have just persevered, but there was just nothing there.
Of course there’s always an up side…I had plenty of time to prepare for the birthday celebrations we had planned for later in the day 🙂
And Sunday’s “recovery” run was much, much better. So good, in fact, that I’m finally going to share one of my favorite Sunday run pix with you.
Luau cat. Just coming home from a night on the town when I was heading out for my run. Hope he makes you as happy as he makes me.
