Admit it, you are tired.
No, really I'm okay, I just need to have a little nap and then I'll be fine.
Ah, come on, I'm telling you, you're tired!
No, I just have a few more things to do and fit in my 20K run on Sunday, I'm okay....really!
HAHAHAHAA, a 20K run, ya, right, like I'm NOT going to let you do it, just wait and see! Come Sunday, you'll be toast, TOAST I SAY! Just see if I let you run me into the ground....you'll be lucky to get 12K done...trust me.
And so, this is how the conversation went all week long between my body and my head.
Well, this time, Body Blue won the battle...all along she was right, no 20K for this Chickie today...I truly was struggling to get my 12K done. The entire week slipped by without a run. It was the usual busy, busy at work, which left me with absolutely NO energy when I got home from work.
I would make dinner and then head to bed at 7:30PM, what's up with that? Not one, no, not two days in a row....but everyday this past week and Saturday was spent sleeping on the couch all afternoon. This is just not "the real me".
Today's run was slow and it was a struggle trying to catch my breath. Plus I had a hard time trying to keep my cadence all the while being 30 seconds slower than my regular slow pace. Not good, but I got at least 12K in.
This coming week I will have to be a little more disciplined, there are only two weeks before the first of two half marathons. No goofing around now, I'll be spending time at the gym if the weather is rainy or cool....I can definitely tell the end of running season is getting closer!
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
