Describing this run disgusted, hard, ugly, defeated, embarrassing
So, this run, I started after asking a coworker to join me. I embarrassed myself inside.
Now, posting this, three days later, I reflect back on the day
- I worked that previous night 1845-0830, slept at work till 12:45, meeting 1300-1500, worked 1500-1930, didn’t eat since 2300 while working, one bottle of water the whole time, the course was full of hills (my road at home is extremely flat), and I did my first 40:00 the training day prior. Oh and it was 90+ degrees out with a crazy amount of humidity. I tried to keep up, I tried to start the run at a faster pace vs my normal rhythm of starting slow and easing into the run. I wanted to be further along than I am, I wanted to act like I wasn’t carrying 240 lbs. (probably a little lower, I haven’t weighed in since June 1 143lbs)
Train for me, not for where others are, and get back to my best by being smart, not overzealous.
A true moment in humility in our world of running.
Breaking down the run-
1.75 straight, no pauses, then 0.25 intervals until I got back to my car, it sucked at each pause no breath, my partner was kicking my tail I was defeated but I learned so much
