Oh no you don't...!
That is what my body said to me on the trail today. I don't normally go reaching into my bag of excuses but today I'm going to blame the following.
- 4 hours of sleep.
- Lots of beer.
- Some wine.
- A ton of fried food and French fries.
I ran with Bryan Estes this morning and my legs were just empty today. For sure Bryan is faster but today he had to wait three times and then still ran away from me at the end. And I was feeling so good yesterday!
To top it off, my shoes felt like they have been pretty worn out lately and today it was like there was zero cushion left so after logging my run I checked the mileage and guess what, they are worn out. I have 500 miles on these - time for retirement.
Did I mention that my liner shorts - who's some purpose is to make anything else you wear MORE comfortable - rubbed me a little raw on my lower back...?! No idea what happened there but I could feel it half way in and by the end I had a raw spot with less skin.
At least it was an awesome day! The sun came out at the end, the temps were fine and there was no rain. That and Bryan is a blast to talk to when we run. I was just out of ear shot more than I would have liked to be.
look at my heart rate! I could not get it up to save my life.
