I think it kicked me in the shin, or tummy, or hip or....everywhere. I didn't quit though. Oh, I thought about it. I really did but then I couldn't whine to you about how sucktastic my run was.
And suck it did.
I think my legs were still wore out from the hilly Wednesday ride. You don't hear about marathoners cranking out 30 miles of climbing in the middle of marathon training. Really. I may wear a cape but I don't really have super powers. Shhh, don't tell the kids. My legs felt dead the whole blasted run.
Then there was the little fact that I didn't really eat much of anything yesterday, and forget about drinking water, that wasn't happening much either. What gives? That is really unlike me. I payed for it for 2 whole hours. Lesson learned.....again. Smarts and super powers evade me.
Oh, and somebody added a few hills in the last few miles. That was pretty crapalicious.
She wasn't crapalicious but I think she is the one who added those hills. Ok, ok, it wasn't her. She did throw a good elbow at the one who added them. My arm still hurts. :-)
I have had some darn good runs lately so I need to shut it. You have good and bad runs, it is the nature of running. I just know that I could have made better choices and this run wouldn't have sucked so bad.
Our run finished at Starbucks! Whoever mapped that run (me) is a genius!
I wanted to do a post with a reflection on 2011, it was a pretty stellar year for me full of PR's and fun.
I wanted to end the post with a few thoughts about heading into 2012, it looks to be pretty exciting.
I wanted to do all that, I did. But......
I started throwing sugar and butter into booze and this happened.
It ended with Baileys added to a buttercream. Swoon...
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!I hope you all have a safe and fun evening.
My resolution is to write a long meaningful blog post and comb my hair.
I am hoping to knock those out tomorrow.
