My legs were sore and tired from my workout on Friday, but I forced myself to get out there and at least do a little run today. It was cool and breezy out and if I’d been in the right frame of mind, it would have been perfect for running. But my legs felt like lead and I just wasn’t in the mood. So all in all, I did 1.3 miles in 13 minutes. That’s my normal pace, but it felt like I was hauling ass so I sort of expected it to be faster than that. I think I need another race to train for. I’m not good at setting my own rules. I like the rigidity of a schedule. I thought about Team in Training today. I always think that might be a good idea but then when it comes down to it, I get scared. I don’t run with a running group because I’m afraid of accountability. I trained for a month or so for a race with two friends and hated how I had to be up at a certain time because they were counting on me. When I train by myself, I have the best of both worlds; I have a schedule which force me to run but I still have the leeway to do it on my time. But I think that running with a group would be a totally different experience and it might help me become a better runner.
I don’t have any energy. I haven’t all weekend. My mom insists that taking Vitamin D supplements will help. I try to but I forget. Multi-vitamin, Vitamin D, Claritin, AD, BC, it’s a lot to swallow. Literally! Not to mention that I didn’t even learn to swallow a pill until I was about 18.
