When i say double down, it means i missed my run yesterday. I was trying to make it to the fleet feet chicks night, but somebody got in an accident on the Kennedy, and there was no way i would make it there in time sans teleportation. I really, really wished there was a running group that ran at 7. The traffic was so bad that i tried to take city streets the whole way just to avoid the highway parking lot. I was doing pretty good until i got lost. Have you ever gotten lost in the city you live in? I do it on a weekly basis. I ended up on Lincoln, driving through some neighborhood with a lot of signs in Korean. How do i do these things?? I also saw a man dressed up as the statue of liberty dancing with a light up banjo. I thought i was having major hallucinations, until i realized this is some kind of promotional thing that liberty taxes does to attract customers. Damn, i thought i had stumbled onto some kind of candy corn hallucinogenic....
|At least mine had a multi-colored light up banjo, which was a nice touch...|
So obviously my run just DID NOT HAPPEN. and i am feeling guilty. Like, real guilty. I am totally sucking at running since the puppy came. Now i need to either double up on mileage tomorrow (hence the double down) or run on friday instead, thereby losing my rest day. I have read that there are some marathon training programs where you run longer distances on fewer days. Sometimes i wonder if this would be better for my complete and utter lack of time.
I am only in week three of my training program and feel tired, hungry, and overwhelmed. I have my fingers crossed for a second wind/fresh perspective to kick in any day now. Or a 30 hour day. It would solve all my problems. That, or the 20 hour-work week.
