Well, as you are aware, Saturday mornings I do my long runs. I prep and mentally prepare all week, and this weekend I was ready to conquer 20 miles!!
My bags were packed, I was hydrated, all carbed up and in bed by 8:30..Things were looking good for me. I was mentally in the game this week!
..I was still up at 10:30 and my mind was racing, I went from being all excited about running my long run to panicking about everything else. It was a sleepless night, I know I had to watch Eric run his first half marathon at Disney the following night, I was overwhelmed and felt sick to my stomach at that point. I had been having chest pains that week, which I take it up to anxiety, but that is my self diagnosis.
I knew if I would have gone to my run, I would not have mentally been there, it would have turned out no good.
Therefore, can you guess how many miles I ran?
And I am incredibly disappointed in myself. I needed a mental health day, I needed a day to get things done, and that of course did not happen, running around getting things ready for Disney.
After two crazy weeks, I was physically, mentally and emotionally drained. Today I am doing better. I got out Monday and Tuesday evening for some runs:) I am back on track. I promised myself I have to get it into gear since I cannot run on Saturday due to the holiday..
Now if my back would only stop hurting to get in my scheduled 7 miler this evening.. there is always tomorrow morning:)
