|Horrible, terrible, pathetic, etc... Need I say more? How am I ever going to quality for Boston with runs like this? |
I started out well under my goal pace. I felt comfortable and didn't seem to be pushing hard. When I got near 3 miles it hit me like a, well a wall. I was soooooo tired, I didn't want to run. I was thirsty, sweating, and hot. I took a break and hit a water fountain. After what seemed like an hour I thought I better try and finish this run and began out across the damn again. I didn't make it a mile before I had to stop again. This time I just lost it mentally. I was running a good pace, feeling OK but my mind slipped for just a second and I stopped. I rested for a bit and started up again only to make it another quarter mile and stop again. This was not going to be my day.
I made it off the damn and to another water fountain. I rested again and then decided to walk it on in. I had given up on a run! I called my wife to come pick me up because I didn't want to walk. Very depressing. I just didn't have it today, I'm not sure I have it at all.
I have plenty of excuses. Want to hear some? I stayed up late watching the Missouri game. I ate junk food for dinner. I drank beer yesterday.
