Working Hard

Do you ever have a run where you feel as though you're just laboring through the entire thing? And, have you ever had an entire week's worth of runs feel like that?

That's how this past week has felt, and was especially true for this evening's 3 miler (29:42).

I think this is due to several reasons; one of them being that teaching just plain wore me out this week. So, I originally intended to do my week's long run tomorrow morning, but now I think I will take the day off running tomorrow, and maybe a day's rest will help between now and Sunday.

Thank god this is a long weekend. I'm really looking forward to sleeping in some.

I hate weeks like that. I've had a few this summer. Hopefully the day off will make your long run better. Taking a few days off this week made me feel much better physically and mentally. We'll see if it helps me get through the 18 miles tomorrow...

I know what you are talking about, that is how I felt two weeks ago!

I am so happy to have an extra day to sleep in! WOOT!

Holy crap my whole week has been exactly that way. I'm dreading tomorrow's long run, but plan on drowning my sorrows in labor day beer and BBQs

Oh yeah. I've been there...more than once and it pisses me off every time.

I think it's because you didn't go bowling this week...yeah, that's the reason...

I just want to run...

I have had those runs and they are frustrating. Even more frustrating are those runs where you start running and you feel retarded.

Uh hello body, we're running here!

AMEN!! I'm like that every month, especially when it's PMS time :-X :-X LMAO!

Yes indeed! Runs or weeks like that are hard, but we pass them and better runs are to come. At least you are trucking through it and you'll come back strong when you get into the swing of everything!

Me too :-) I really need some sleep....

I am jealous in some way. I find it very hard to sleep in these days. I've tried to sleep in but my body just wake me up and say "Let's get moving!" What's the trick to sleeping in?
