Yes, I realize that is a long title, but that is how I felt after my slow and painful run this afternoon. I wanted to run five miles today but that wasn't happening. As soon as I set out on my run, I just wasn't feelin' it. It didn't help that my ankle was sore... And then my knees.
I'd planned on running five miles because I have a five mile race in a month and I really wanted to improve my time from last year's race. Oh well! I guess there is always my next run. I ended up
barely getting in 2.3 miles. But, I am not letting it get me down because I know even a bad run is better than no run! I am now at home enjoying a stawban (strawberry banana) smoothie while icing everything my knees and right ankle (Disregard the cigar smoking in the photo - This has nothing to do with my poor performance today!).
Tomorrow I will most likely opt for the elliptical and some weights. Monday and Tuesday I am traveling for business so I hope to get in a TM run at some point. I will tackle my five miler again next weekend and I hope to rock it!
What do you have planned for the weekend? Something fun, I hope! I'm off to get ready for some shopping and bonding time with my friend Danielle. It's long overdue!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
