I Had To Run Solo To Get My Mind Right

I headed out early this morning. I slept terrible all night. Not sure what my deal was, but at 3:45 I decided to just get up. I got some school work done and around 4:40 I headed out for my run. I needed to get out and just run on my own. I needed time to sort things out mentally for myself. Try to figure out what is going on. I skipped the morning group run and headed out solo.

I wanted 8 miles and I had to be home by 6 am so Amanda could run to school for sub plans. She had to stay home as Addy had to go to specialist about her arm(she broke her elbow).

I headed out and took things easy working to be sure I kept to 154 HR. I was good until mile 6 when I was much higher than I should have been. I did not feel bad. Actually, the pace felt easy. I did not feel like I was pushing too hard. I knew I should have slowed down to keep my HR regulated, but things felt good. I did slow down the last mile for a cool down.

During the run I took an Advocare gel and came home and consumed some Rehydrate. I am going to give Advocare a try. After talking with Rod Creech, my AAU basketball coach from high school I felt rejuvenated again to get back on track. I hope it lasts, but just talking about some things and life I just felt motivated to get going again. I don’t know if I am in marathon shape, but I will see how the week goes.

I am tired today from the terrible night of sleep. I am really going to focus on my diet and nutrition this week(at least until the Notre Dame game Saturday).

Back on track for one day.

  1. Wait. Doesn’t everyone always get up at 3:45? That ‘s the only way I can get my measly mile in on the tread mill! Hope the elbow isn’t too bad. I like the post card project.
