I spent twenty minutes searching my house looking for my wireless headphones before my run yesterday evening. Eventually, I gave up and ran without music. I used to run without music all the time, especially on shorter runs. But, for speed work I've needed the extra boost of some good tunes. Ah well.
My stomach was off yesterday, probably from the pizza I had, which meant my speed sucked. It didn't suck, but it wasn't as fast as I would've liked it. I told myself it was dark, which automatically slows me down, plus the stomach thing so I am not mad at my times.
I saw lots of Halloween decorations which made me think of Anna. Sure, we throw up a couple of strands of lights, but there were houses with orange and purple lights, decorating each bush and tree, like it was Christmas. Seems like a lot of work to me!
I got home and it turns out Hubs had my wireless headphones, he took them to work. He said, "Well why didn't you just ask me?" And I forced myself to not kick him in the shins because why would I think to ask him when he doesn't normally take my headphones to work? Never mess with a runner's headphones, son!
Less than a month until my half marathon. I don't know if I should be worried or not. I figure I am just going to run it for all I am worth and hope for the best. I'm feeling slightly defeated by my speed work, but got some good advice and boosts from my Lovely Ladies group last week. Speed work sucks, but I'm running on tired legs, I'm not tapered, and shoot I am going to do well on this race. It's just a matter of HOW well, right?
Speaking of that group, if you get a chance head over to A Little More Each Day, she is running a half marathon this weekend and is going to crush it. But, I'm sure some encouragement won't hurt!
