This pretty much encapsulates my feelings this morning:
Mostly because my run was HORRIBLE yesterday. I woke up with legs so sore they felt like lead but it was 65 and sunny and perfect and today it’s supposed to thunderstorm so obviously, I decided my rest day could wait. My legs hurt the entire way and I know I was going crazy slow. I finish the 5 mile loop and look at my garmin and it says I’ve run 3.67 miles. Right. So I run the same 5 mile loop a lot and it always measures the same, it measured the same THE DAY BEFORE but I guess I lost satellite coverage somehow in the perfect cloudless sunshine? Well, thanks to that, Mr. Garmin thinks I was running like 11:40 min/mile. Obviously, I can calculate my real pace so no big deal, but I was just so cranky and wanted to go home and foam roll until I cried. Today is a MUCH needed rest day so I can enjoy the glorious 80 degree weekend.
It sure was gorgeous though. Despite the pain, I’m always happy to get out the door on a beautiful day and I know I would have regretted it if I would have skipped it. A little muscle soreness never killed anyone 😉
Oh, and I totally forgot to let everyone know that obviously a winner was selected in the Pro Compression giveaway. Don’t worry, I didn’t space completely, she has been informed and her contact info passed along to the company, I just completely forgot that in the mix-up with my scheduled posts not going up last week, y’all didn’t see who actually won.
Oh, and I was super proud of this for like 5 minutes yesterday:
I felt like a badass. Until Joe told me that velociraptors are basically glorified chickens. They weighed like 30 pounds and had feathers and were maybe knee height. I maintain I am a badass because the quiz specifies that I am the Jurassic Park form of velociraptor, not the actual historical species. Just go along with it…
If you were a dinosaur, what would you be and why?
Is your weather getting hot where you live? We’re going to be in the 80s this weekend!
