Long Weekend, Not Long Run
I've officially missed the bill on my last long run pre-race. I was supposed to do about 10ish miles on Saturday or Sunday and I laid around instead. Not acceptable behavior, but no one to really yell at me either. I felt good running 5 miles on Turkey Day, but when Friday rolled around and the elements had hit Amarillo, there was no way I was running in the rain, nor in the 60mph winds on Saturday. And although Sunday was very nice weather, it was spent packing and driving home. I'm not trying to use this as an excuse, but sometimes your stars just don't align. Which is why I felt it at the gym today. I still wanna get in good miles this week just to stay in the moment, but I won't be running any more than 6 miles until race day. I'm just gonna have to dig REAL DEEP on Sunday and run with every inch of my being.
This is a special Post, not because of my fabulous words, but because it is Post number 200! I'm sure that seems like nothing to all you crazy bloggers out there, but it's a milestone for me. It should be more since I've had this blog for 2 years, but I'll take what I can get. I've written a lot of words in that time and I'm glad I have the followers that I do. This guy just wrote his 1,000 blog the other day and hope to one day make fun of you all for sticking around that long, cause lord knows I've got lots of nothing to say for 800 more posts! Nothing like writing about your posts in a post!
Some of you might remember this post...about the first time I ever showered at the gym. I am pretty much the most modest person in the women's locker room. I'm not a big fan of full frontals, nor the bend over while applying lotion position, nor the wrap towel around bottom half and let top half air dry, and not even the talk to me while using towel to dry hair while fully naked. All of which I encounter weekly. Besides all that, I still shower at the gym regularly when I workout over the lunch hour. I try to avert my eyes and not seem interested in carrying on a conversation. I like the feeling of being clean, so I'll take the good with the bad, but you better believe I'm not showing anyone my goods! I'm very modest indeed!
Do you feel intimidated by naked people in the locker room? Yes, I do!
Eating leftover Turkey and stuff instead of working out for 3 days is okay, right? Haha, think again!
