I had a really off day yesterday
and finally decided to make it my SDO
and I moved the run slated for yesterday to today, and it 6.25 miles and was satisfying.
was oddly awful. it shouldn't have been a bad day. Our trivia team, with only three players, WON on Tuesday night
without much help from me at all. I had ONE hard cider, ONE, and some porky nachos, so OK, not the best of pre-run prep
, but I've lived through much worse. Wednesday morning, I got dressed, put on my running shoes and then proceeded to NOT get out the door
the entire morning !!
It really bothered me that I didn't feel like running, but at the same time, I couldn't make myself do it
In the meantime, I did all sorts of household chores that I absolutely hate: vacuumed, dusted, cleaned the litter box, then when I cleaning out behind the washing machine
I realized I was truly in the throes of taper madness
, and I kind of made peace with my funk.
it is possible that I was still tired from Monday's 10 x .5 mile repeats The announcement about the National Guard being ordered to my 'hood didn't help my mood either, but that's a rant for another day
In the afternoon I got out and walked around a new birding spot. It was nice and gave me enough zen to deal with the rest of the day.
