In another of life’s small miracles I actually did my PU/SU workout on Saturday. It was a quick 30/30 but it felt terrible. I definitely felt weak although I can’t quantify that as I failed to record my numbers. I know. I know.
Anyway, I don’t have any other updates from the weekend because I didn’t do my scheduled 10-miler. I was going to. I really was. In fact I was actually looking forward to it based on how well my last 10-miler went.
Unfortunately, on Saturday night I had a bout of “flu-like symptoms”. I’ll spare you the gory details but the upshot was that I was in absolutely no shape to workout on Sunday. In fact it was so bad I didn’t even go to work on Monday.
Which sucked because 1) being sick sucks 2) being really sick sucks 3) being sick by yourself with noone to complain to/take care of you sucks 4) I really WAS looking forward to my 10-miler and now I’ve missed/failed on two (maybe three?) of the programmed long runs in my run plan.
So now it’s actually Tuesday night and I’m posting this mostly to avoid going out and doing the run that I’m supposed to be doing tonight (2x1600m // 200m recovery). I am not feeling motivated about this at all. Work is a little stressful, I’m tired, I’m hungry, it’s pitch black outside and I’m not motivated. Did I mention that? The irony is that those conditions are actually a great REASON to go out and run and suck some endorphins. And yet … here I sit NOT going out for my run.
The internal struggle continues …
Tune in tomorrow to find out what happens …
