I was really excited to get out and run in the rain this morning but I ended up stopping at two miles (I was planning on going 6). It was just one of those running days. I haven’t slept well at all this week (sometimes I have weeks where my brain doesn’t stop racing and I can’t sleep) and so I think my body was just exhausted. No need to get down on ourselves when this happens because it happens to ALL of us. It is part of running and yes, it is important to push ourselves but sometimes you’ve just gotta slow down or stop.
I am doing my long run tomorrow so I am going to rest up today, get plenty of sleep tonight and try the whole running thing out tomorrow. We can only expect so much out of our bodies and today my body wanted nothing to do with moving.
My dad came and picked me up (yep, I didn’t even want to walk home.. that is how tired I was and my dad is pretty much the best) and then Brooke and I went and bought 2 dozen donuts. PS this post has a ridiculous amount of donut pics in it so if you have no way to get a donut in the next 24 hours you may want to skip the rest.
Brooke had her bffs over for swimming and sprinkles.
Heather also went without sugar for 21 days and this was both of our first donuts after the challenge. Oh apple fritters.
How Brooke prefers to eat her donuts.
And for dinner tonight we are making something involving all of these amazing garden veggies to help our bodies feel a little better after a bunch of donuts;)
PS I saw this on Jaqueline’s Instagram and if I ever have the desire to get married again… I hope that this is the way I am proposed to:)
Last time you quit a run? How come?
How do you move on after a bad run?
Who has NOT tried an apple fritter before? What is your address so that I can send you one?
