This has been a crazy week.
First, I had a great run on Monday. I felt on top of the world. I had strength, power and felt like I could run forever.
Tuesday… Not so good. I couldn’t sleep the night before, I felt tired and I ran poorly.
Wednesday… Worst – tired. Couldn’t sleep. I ran, but ran slowly and walked a bit. It was 40 degrees hotter than the same time last week. Not that it was hot, but 40 degrees is a lot of change in a week.
Thursday… The day started slowly in general. At work I dragged around. I felt blah. Then 11:00 happened. I don’t know what that means, but sometime around 11:00 I felt better. I wasn’t dragging . I felt so much better. It was like the past two days just went away and I was back to normal.
I got home from work and decided to walk.. or maybe run… just play it by feel. I didn’t want to overdue it, but also I was feeling so much better. So I left the house and walked about a quarter mile. I got to an intersection where a car was wanting to turn and I was in the way, so I jogged over to the other side… and kept going.
I ended up mostly running about 5 miles. I walked a couple of times for a few minutes. The run felt great. I actually had a good pace, even though I wasn’t trying to. I got home and I felt good, my hip didn’t hurt and it was a good time.
Last night I slept well for the first time in 3 days and I woke up before my alarm feeling fine.
So what did happen this week. It is interesting as I wasn’t the only one feeling down and out. I know several people who felt the same way. Maybe something in the air?
Either way, I am going to run my mountain tomorrow with TJ. Since I’ll be running with him, I’ll run harder then I would by myself. One day, my goal is to run it twice… Maybe next week.
Sunday will be my day of rest (as it should be).
So all is well in 278toBoston land.
Thank you all who showed concern and helped with your comments and posts.
I am sooooo thankful it is Friday.
Till next time…
