Running on empty

Sometimes I'm a complete dumb ass. Sometimes I have a lapse in clarity and do things I shouldn't do. For example, Saturday I ran 8 hard miles, and then on Sunday I decided to run a 10K (6.2 mile) race. What the hell was I thinking?

When I woke up late on Sunday morning, and by late I mean 7:15 AM, I should have known I was too tired from Saturday's 8 mile run to even attempt a 10K race. But, I didn't listen to my inner voice that was screaming, "Don't run today, you moron, your legs are sore and tight, attempting another 6.2 miles at race pace is a stupid effing idea!" No! I didn't listen. Instead, I laced up my ASICS Gel Evolution running shoes and headed for the race.

Needless to say, I ran my worst 10K race ever. Whatever! At least I covered the distance, and I wasn't the last person to finish the race. Small victories do count, ya know!

Note to self: Don't bite off more than you can chew!

As you like to say - you were out there - that in itself is a victory - instead of gourging yourself and getting fat like some people!!
