When I got back from WA I just didn't feel like running much. I went on a 6 miler a week ago and it sucked, bad. WA air is so clean and awesome and UT air, well, sucks. Ever since that craptastic run I sort of gave up on myself.
Today I ran 4 miles since it's my taper week(you do lower mileage leading up to a race). I'm running the Porter Half in Draper. I've been so nervous since the last week I haven't ran much at all. Today I felt good. I need to remember that with every horrible run there's a good run to come. You have to feel the rough patches to appreciate the runs that make you wanna put those shoes back on and hit the pavement. I also learned that if you don't feel like running (or working out for that matter) it's okay to take a break or do a different kind of workout to get yourself back in the groove.
On a positive awesome running note:
I've ran 500 miles in these shoes, which means I needed new running shoes to prevent injury(Nike Lunarglide, the original) they don't make them anymore=(
My new shoes! I've ran two shorter runs in these and so far I like them. I'm a creature of habit so I really hated parting with my other shoes. (Nike Lunarglide 3)
Since we're on the shoe topic, did I mention J is obsessed with shoes?
|He takes all my shoes out|
and just because, super baby!
