OK so I did have a bad run. My last bad run was in May when there was hail. I am not complaining. Sometimes that’s just what it is and I can be happy that it has been such a long time. So what happened?
I went out later than usual on Saturdays. One of the first bad things was a broken stinky truck that made me nearly nauseous. Smoke came out the back of it … it was also super fast … maybe they were just trying to head to a mechanic as fast as possible, but it certainly didn’t look or smell healthy.
The plan was to go up to my favorite hill, past Puck’s castle and the chimney. It wasn’t supposed to be.
I never found my stride … I felt lousy the whole time. I switched to walking and wanted to at least “do my time”, but that didn’t happen either.
I turned around even before I was at the castle.
And you know what? It’s OK. I can be glad I haven’t gotten a cold or caught the flu (yet) and just have to take it as a sign and relax … the past days have been more stressful than usual. I’m still fitter than ever in my life, no one bad run can take that away from me.
So today … a bit over 9k in 1:45 – it really can’t be called a run – I probably ran 1 k of it.
Tomorrow is recovery day anyhow and Monday is a day off from work. If I don’t burst with energy I’ll take two days off.
Hope you are doing better than me! Enjoy it for me and blog about it will you!?
