I woke up ready for my long run. After I got all my stuff together, I headed out for 15 slow miles. Yesterday I had said I would be happy with 10, but as soon a I hit the “publish” button I knew I wouldn’t be happy with 10.
I started out slow, I figured I would just take it super easy since I was still a little sore from that stupid “Core Synergistics”.
Even though they were my slowest miles, they felt like they flew by.
The next 5 miles were slightly more difficult. Around mile 8 the left side of my hip was pretty sore. I had the thought of “Just get to 12, and you can quit”.
I guess I was just buying time, since by mile 10 I really wasn’t feeling that sore anymore. My thoughts then turned to, “How can I add 3 extra miles to this run??”
I just decided to do 2 extra loops around my 2 mile block. I hate doing multiple loops, but at that point I just wanted to stay close to home, and I figured miles are miles.
I knew my battery was low, but I thought it would get my 15 miles recorded. This is where it died.
The running gods were just being cruel. Ok I get it! I need a Garmin!! My iPhone can’t keep up with me anymore. Well my long runs anyways. Which is sad, I really like the music feature on the Nike+ app.
Post run was the usual, iced coffe, eggs (extra salt), and a bagel thin.
Now I’m relaxing while watching Rock Of Ages. And it reminded me that I hate musicals….awesome.
Spoiler Alert: Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin make out…
Did you get your long run in today? Or race?
What’s your go-to post run meal?
What movie genre do you hate?
I’m also not a big fan of action movies, unless Liam Neeson or Vin Diesel are in them.
