Boy was I wrong.
We got through the first at a 10+ pace and it was shortly after that I decided irritation in my quad was not shared equally in both legs and could only mean one thing.
I'm not 100 percent yet.
So after a little over a mile I ended up walking about three miles. I was glad to not be responsible for ruining anyone else's run. Anne and Carrie went on without me and got in six miles.
I finished up with some arms and then headed home. Not the morning I thought it would be but I am resigned to the fact that I want to run, but I don't want to run if it feels like crap. It seems like an eternity since my last really good run and it feels like it will be as long until I have another one.
So I'm going to bike, spin, swim, get in some strength training and even try out deep water running. Am I bummed? Sure. But crappy running is way worse than being sidelined for a little bit.
We will be at the beach in a couple of weeks and I am hoping to be able to get a few miles there. I love running at the beach.
Lunch today was awesome.
Breakfast burrito with egg whites, potato, broccoli, spinach, cheddar cheese and avocado. Yum.
Now Carson and I are hanging out watching the last two episodes of Revolution.
Have a great Saturday!
