I might as well get this over with...

Maybe I jinxed myself with my earlier post today because tonight's run did not go well. I started off physically and mentally feeling great! I met Joe at 7:30, and we started off with a 9:30 pace. Unfortunately the humidity sucked, and I guess it really got to me. I was having troubles catching my breath, and by the time we reached 4.5 miles I had to stop. My face suddenly felt like it was on fire yet numb and tingly at the same time. Then my whole body felt tingly, and I was light-headed. Needless to say, we walked alllllll the way back (a LONG 4.5 miles). I am frustrated and pissed at myself. Per Joe's recommendation, I'm not going to run the rest of the week, but just practice my swimming. I'm afraid of hitting a "wall" an ruining my running, so I'm going to make this week my taper off week instead of next. Hopefully that will help.

So here's a great big THANK YOU to Joe for sticking it out with me. And making me rest when I obviously need it. But next week, it's on! LOL


  1. Bummer about the bad run! Don't worry, it happens to ALL of us. The trick is to give your body what it wants/needs, you'll come back energized and ready to go!

  2. Don't worry too much about it and dno't beat yourself up. The crazy thing about running is that one day it's awesome and the other is sucks. Listen to your body. Taking a break once in a while is a good thing.

  3. I agree with everyone has already said. It's cool :-) I think I have 5 bad running days to every 1 good one LOL

  4. I've had many a bad run like that. Everyone else is right: don't beat yourself up over, chock it up to simply a bad run, and move forward like it didn't happen.
