Ever have one of those runs where EVERYTHING feels off? That’s how it’s been lately for me. I’ve been super stressed out & have a lot going on, and sadly I just kind of shut down training wise. I wish I was one of those people that really zoned in on their runs in times like these, but I’m not.
Even if I force myself out the door, I can’t keep my heart rate down, my pace is slower than usual and it’s just a complete battle. That’s the summary of today’s run. The last two-ish weeks I haven’t been even remotely close to consistent – and I’ll own that – but I set out for 6 miles today for my “long run.” CRASH AND BURN
I finished. But barely. I stopped countless times, took walk breaks, texted my boyfriend saying I’m quoting running and almost cried. The only reason I didn’t cry was because I convinced myself it would take too much energy 🤣
Bottom line, it was brutal. But it’s done! And regardless, it’s still six more miles in the bank that I’ve added to my base building.
Next week I’m going to try to be consistent with my eating, sleeping, recovery and of course my runs so I have a better report next weekend xoxo
