Saturday and Sunday were also spent in Michigan with my family. I rearranged my planned workouts so I could take a rest day Saturday before my long run Sunday.
For some reason I had a hard time sleeping, and felt the opposite of “rested” when I woke up. I set my alarm for 6 with the hopes of being out the door by 7 to beat the heat. I didn’t get out the door until after 7:30, but hoped I would still be able to get ahead of the heat. I. Was. Wrong. It was already pretty warm and there was the humidity of Michigan I am just not use to anymore.
I had some sport beans around mile 9, but was starting to get extremely hot, which I do not tolerate well. I tried to keep pushing, but had to walk for about half a mile during mile 13 to cool myself down. Once I did, I picked it back up and finished strong. Kind of annoyed about the walking since I have never done that on a long run, but I think it’s what my body needed and probably best that I listened.
Then my mom and I headed to a Arbor Brewing Company in downtown Ann Arbor to meet my sister (the Doctor!!! That’s not getting old for me yet- haha) and her fiance for lunch. It was great to be able to spend a little time with them alone since there were so many people and such chaos at the party on Friday.
We said our goodbyes and I headed back to my mom’s to pack. Then it was off to the airport and back to Denver. It was an amazing weekend filled with family time, but I was excited to get back to Joe too 🙂
This is my last week of work with the kids!!!!
Do you beat yourself up when a run doesn’t quite go your way?
