dud of a run

27 Jul

thumbs downSo, we entered Pathetic Town on the run today. It didn’t start off well, nor did it end well either. I had downloaded my intervals onto the Garmin, got dressed, grabbed my gear, got to the greenway and realized that I’d forgotten….the Garmin. No biggie, I have Runkeeper on my phone. Yay for backup plans.

I felt sluggish and not into it at all and finally gave up on using the stopwatch to track the intervals. I decided to just get 3-4 miles in and call it a day. Then as I was just finding a semi groove, my ankle/foot went pop and I couldn’t go anymore. Not even two miles and I’m hobbling to the car. I moved it around and popped it a few times and it felt better but I didn’t want to continue.

Enter Angry Runner. Seriously livid at my stupid body for betraying me again. Desperately hoping that this was just a fluke thing. I almost went home but really needed some alone time, so to the gym I went. Got a decent work out there fueled by frustration. Pooped out on the bike ride and left.

27 Jul

I’d love a nap but its already 4pm and that would just be bad news bears. Its been an extremely full day already. Kiddo had yet another birthday party to go to, this one all the way across town at one of her friend’s homes. They had water slides and kiddie pools set up and they all had a blast. But I am really hoping this is the last birthday party for a while.

I went on another animal rescue mission, this time it was just too convenient not to. An elderly lady had an injured finch and only lived five minutes from the birthday party. How could I not? Kiddo go to “help” with this one, which she thought was pretty cool. Lil’ birdie had an injured/broken left wing and couldn’t fly but could definitely still hop and flutter. We nearly let him get away trying to get him in the transport box. But so far I’m still 2-0 as far as safe animal deliveries go.

I’m trying to will myself to get my running gear on and go to the greenway. I haven’t worked out in a couple of days and I can tell. Yucky feeling. Must.Go.Now.
