Just another weary week. After particularly hard efforts (and I do believe the Saint John run applies) I tend to feel weary for awhile. Not so much "tired" as I need more sleep, but every small thing seems to take extra effort and ~Sigh~ Im just not having the energy for that lol. So this week has been very, very weary. I hope I get over it soon. It has been a busy week and promises to be another busy week coming up. Sleep won't cut it; time is what I need.
And tomorrow = VP Challenge. SIGH. Its not long, 5 km. I dont have to run it hard, but the obstacles; ok really, the wall. Im going to hit the wall. Literally LOL. There is a wall and I cannot climb walls. I cant climb stuff. I was THAT kid in school who could not climb the walls, the ropes. I would get a few feet up and fall back. While pretty much everyone else climbed ropes to the ceiling, hopped over walls and obstacles, I didnt manage. Tomorrow that's all going to come back to haunt me when we do this obstacle course and Im supposed to climb a freaking wall. WALL. Crap.
I didnt run yesterday. I should have. I didnt run the day before but for better reasons lol Funeral, torrential rain. I dont mind rain but that rain was a bit extreme. Buckets. But yesterday I should have ran. By the time I crawled out of bed it was hot and we had a 4H meeting (scrapbooking) so I cleaned up and got laundry going and did the meeting (4+ hours More crap. That was a long time). Then had a short rest, took the kids to soccer, watched Scott umpire, and home into bed. Weary. Serious weary.
Today I ran. On rest day LOL. 8.2 km at an easy pace for a finish time of 53:18 minutes. Just a nice early, easy run. Early - was up before 7 am and out running before 8. Still, hot. And humid.
Tomorrow weather forecast is 27 C and Humid. Chance of Thundershowers in the afternoon. That should be just awesome, crawling through the mud, over walls, up Jacob's Ladder, leaping Hay Bales. LOL. Should be awesome!
Glad I got out today. it always feels better to go than to not.
