Again. I do this all the time. Ugh. But it was totally fixable it just took some discipline.
Because I forgot that I had a dentist appointment yesterday morning right at the time we were to run. And Tonya could not wait. She's a busy person. Luckily Im a lady of leisure and I have nothing else to do.
So we come home and get the kids from school and I had a little bitty nap and we went to soccer; Holly had a game at the same field and the same time that Annika had a practice (miracle!) and we watched them both yay! Holly scored 2 goals as her team won 4-3. Then I ran home.
I dont usually like to run in the evening; Im usually tired and cranky and want to get the kids to bed on time. So this is where the discipline part came in. It would have been so easy to go home in the car (the new car) and get the kids into bed. But I went and did the running IN the rain (love warm rains and it was warm) and I did 6 km at race pace.
Now I dont really know what Race Pace is hahahah I cannot do 21 km at the race pace the book predicts after the training I did. Im like....I dont get it. I did what the book said. Should I not be able to do the pace it predicts? But I cannot. So Im not going to beat myself up. I ran that pace for 6 km and did that in 35 minutes which is fine with me at this point.
Then Scott came and picked me up timing was perfect because I was going to walk for 1 minute and then continue running til home but he drove along and picked me up before the 1 minute was done. (see? perfect timing). And I called it a run done.
Resting today and by resting I mean Im going to do housework and gardening and going to play ball hockey tonight. Really great rest. The tomorrow is a short slow run to loosen up for the half on Sunday! Its here! SIGH.
Weather watch: It has bobbed back and forth; at the moment we are looking at sunny with clouds and a chance of rain (whatever) oh hahahaha I see some lightening on the forecast now FUNNY Wind forecast has dropped yay and temperature has dropped to about 23 (bearable). It has actually improved despite the lightening hahahhahaha
