I was all set to follow my meal plan and have Baked Shrimp with Feta for dinner. But, I didn’t get home until like 7:30 and I realized that the frozen shrimp I bought was not peeled and I just didn’t want to deal with it. So I had a tortilla pizza with salad instead. And pumpkin ice cream. Oh, pumpkin ice cream, I don’t think I can buy you anymore. 12 servings in that container, my ass. Actually that’s a pretty accurate statement; the 12 servings probably did go to my ass. Ha.
No pizza picture. You all know what they look like. Today was rainy and yucky out. I worked about an hour late and went to the gym after to run on the treadmill. I did three miles. It wasn’t the greatest of runs. Not sure if runs on the treadmill ever are though. For one, my chafed boob still freakin hurts (i never know what to say – breast sounds too formal, but boob sounds stupid. What do you say?) when I have a bra on. (Yes, I still am wearing a bra to work, but the bouncing of running on the treadmill was irritating.) I don’t know what to do about this. It needs to heal by Saturday. I’m supposed to do a short run of 2 miles tomorrow and that’s my last run until the race. Should I skip it if the area is still chafed?
Besides my chafing issues, I’m also experiencing some training burn out. This always happens to me right before I run a half marathon. It’s like once I starting running upwards of 18 or so miles a week, I just get burnt out. And then I always stop running after the race and lose my endurance. It’s especially hard now that it’s getting darker earlier. What can I do to keep myself motivated? I guess sign up for another race but there aren’t really that many in the winter.
