I have been abnormally tired for the past two days and it is killing me at work. I woke up this morning and was fighting with myself in my head on whether or not I was going to run my planned 3 miles. I decided just to do, but was considering going to the gym to use the treadmill because it was already almot 80° outside. I brushed my teeth, washed my face and go dressed after that point I felt so much better and completely ready to run. I quickly changed my mind about the treadmill and decided to brave the sweltering weather. It was pretty damn hot. My first mile was fast and I didn’t really start to feel tired until my last mile. IT. WAS. TOUGH. I had to stop twice to take a walk break, and it was only 3 miles! Just goes to show how much the weather really does effect you.
- Distance: 3.12 Miles
- Time: 29:18
- Pace: 9:23 / mile
This was breakfast:
I also had a piece of toast with Teddie Super Chunky peanut butter on it. Like I said, I’ve been so tired for the past few days and I’ve decided to go to bed early tonight and sleep in tomorrow. I’m also going to skip my run that I had planned, I really need a day off from all exercise. I really haven’t had had one in a long time. Skipping my run will most likely cause me not be meet my monthly mileage goal this month. It was 70 miles and I think I will be under by 3 or 4 miles. It kind of sucks, but I don’t care too much because it’s for a good reason. I NEED the rest, mentally and physically. I am aiming for 75 miles in August, I’m really hoping I can meet that!
For dinner I made a ham and cheese panini.
Deli ham with super sharp cheddar cheese and spinach thrown onto the George Foreman grill. It was as simple as that. On the side I had carrots and a wedge of cantaloupe. It was good and satisfying!
I also had a glass of wine with it. The kind from the other day: Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc – I like it! It’s a good kickoff to my newly found hobby of wine tasting. Think I will finish the rest of the bottle tonight, good night!
