And the runs go on
Sunday was a rainy day and we had to pack up and come home and the rest of the day was somewhat a nothing day. Nothing productive happened.
But Monday; sometime a long run had to happen. I believe I am supposed to be doing 19 km this week. My last few weeks have been very off program; 10 km race, 27 km race, 5 km obstacle race...and this weekend we went camping ;) I figured if I fell somewhere between the 16 km I didnt do last week, and the 19 km that I was supposed to do this week, I would be ok. I headed out a little later than I hoped (like over an hour late) and it wasnt too hot at about 19 C and humidex. There was enough breeze that I was cool but gusts that were challenging. By the time I got back to the bottom of our road I was 16.4 km in, and although not feeling too bad, Scott was there waiting and I could not imagine what difference that last .6 km would make, so I got in the car and claimed my Gatorade and went home. 16.4 km and 1:45:03 minutes, loads of hills.
Must get back on Program. Its going to hurt. LOL Retaining fluid and although it does not feel like I am, I must be eating too much because Ive gained 3 pounds and my hands and feet feel swollen. salty food? Need to get runs in.
