Run around life

Yesterday was pretty much an insane day.  Here is how it went…

  1. 1:30 AM Get up
  2. 3:30 AM Dr. Appt.  (Yes that is correct)
  3. 4:45 AM Pick up daughter and take to work
  4. 5:20 AM Arrive at my work
  5. 1:30 PM Leave work
  6. 2:00 PM Find out upstairs heat pump isn’t working
  7. 2:10 PM Take Lovely Wife to our Chiropractor Appt.
  8. 4:00 PM Arrive home and work on getting air conditioning back on
  9. 4:30 PM Run 6 miles
  10. 5:30 PM Finish run
  11. 7:30 PM Get in bed for the evening
  12. 8:30 PM Sleep

Wow, I look at that and wonder how I got through the day.  I almost gave up my run.  I was tired and still sore from workouts and the weekend runs, but I thought that I really don’t have many more runs before tapering and I hate to miss one this late in the game, so I decided to run.  I told my Lovely Wife that I was worried that being tired I might get hurt and she made me promise to run SLOWLY.

So that was my day.  Today I’m still worn out and have a steady state run this afternoon.  I am going to try something different in my quest to run somewhere other than my neighborhood.  I am going to run a bike path near work that is about 2.5 miles long.  It is much flatter than my neighborhood and somewhere different to run.

Just over 2 weeks to go before the marathon.

Have a great day and if your not training for a marathon, get some rest.  🙂

    • I am looking forward to the taper. I may take off tomorrow just to get some sleep. A warm weekend means getting up early each day to run before the heat. Enjoy your run. I look forward to reading about it.

  1. OK. I thought I had a crazy schedule…1:30am wake up for a dr appt two hours later? That’s some dr you have there! But congrats on getting your run in. You had every (valid) excuse to skip it – but you didn’t. Onwards to the marathon!

    • Thank you! I hope it all pays off on the 8th. I got to the doctor’s at 3:30 and was the 4th one in line! This is the doctor that helped me start my journey from 278 lbs. I own him a lot of gratitude.
