There are good runs and then there are bad runs. Today was a bad run. I got my three miles in at lunch. It was a bit rough. My shins tightened up on me so I had to walk a bit after the first mile so they’d relax.
I just never got into a groove and felt like I was stuggling the whole time. Granted I was going fast for me (I tend to do that on treadmills, especially on Thursdays), but still. I felt well hydrated, so I don’t think that was the problem. I was a little hungry when I went down to run, so that could have been a factor. Sometimes you just have a bad run though.
I’ll take a bad run today if that means I’m going to be a rock star for my thirteen miles this Saturday. Here’s hoping!
