(I am starting my Christmas knitting - a pair of socks)
I ran my 2 times during this week... that was OK. This morning I went out to run 8 miles and ran 3 instead. I felt like crap. My hip hurt. My water bottle was leaking. I forgot the receiver for my Nike + iPod. I was not enjoying one second of the run and decided to bag it.
Here is my plan for this week. I am going to run 3 miles on Tuesday morning. I am going to run 3 miles on Thursday morning. I am going to run 8 miles on Saturday morning.
I am going to switch back to long runs on Saturday. On Sunday everyone expects me to make Sunday dinner. And I really do enjoy that - unless, of course, I just finished my long run and I am at the grocery store trying to figure out what I can cook quickly. That is not my idea of fun. I had a house full of family this morning when I took off to run and it just felt wrong to me.
But I must get my long runs in... next week. I commit to this.
