Today is my one month blog-iversary! It’s been fun and such a welcoming community.
This morning was meant to be the easiest run of the week. 3 miles at normal pace. Should be a piece of cake right? Well no. This run was the worst of all my training runs. I started with a headache and icky stomach. My form was all over the place and every step was a struggle. My mind definitely did not want to be out there. It sucked.
So what do you do when this happens? Well, I acknowledge that it was a bad run. Have a minute to feel bad about it and then forget about it. At least the miles are in the bank and that run is ticked off my chart. Now I just have to move on to my long run tomorrow.
Part of the problem is not drinking enough water. Today I have been guzzling as much H20 as possible. I want to feel great tomorrow. It’s also a good reminder for me to take my hydration seriously.
Also managed a quick trip to the climbing gym. 5 routes done including a couple of more challenging climbs and I felt so good. It was a nice contrast to my shitty morning run.
J’s new hobby is home brewing which means are spare room looks like this.
Beer counts as hydration right? Especially when it’s in a glass from my trail series last year.
