I'm sure it was a combination of interrupted sleep and doing a workout video the night befire, but holy balls my run sucked last night!
I wanted to run for National Running Day and I also wanted to run because, well, because I like running and it helps with my weight loss. I did the same thing I did on Monday, put my workout gear on while the boys unwound before bed. As soon as they were asleep I was out the door.
Much like I can't get used to getting up early and having it be so bright out, I am still surprised when the sun is still shining at 8:00PM.
I wanted to run three or four miles and ended up with four. I really had to push myself the last mile, it felt a bit like running through wet cement. I would say quicksand but have you actually seen quicksand in real life not in the movies? It's not as impressive as it looks on film. Maybe it was like running through the Swamp of Sadness from Neverending Story.
And now I just had to pull myself out of that particular wormhole. I had such a crush on Atreyu.
I always think workouts like that, where you just struggle the whole time because your brain isn't in it or your body isn't in it, should be worth double the calories. There's calories burned by the activity and calories burned by telling your brain to shut up three million times.
