dud of a run

thumbs downSo, we entered Pathetic Town on the run today. It didn’t start off well, nor did it end well either. I had downloaded my intervals onto the Garmin, got dressed, grabbed my gear, got to the greenway and realized that I’d forgotten….the Garmin. No biggie, I have Runkeeper on my phone. Yay for backup plans.

I felt sluggish and not into it at all and finally gave up on using the stopwatch to track the intervals. I decided to just get 3-4 miles in and call it a day. Then as I was just finding a semi groove, my ankle/foot went pop and I couldn’t go anymore. Not even two miles and I’m hobbling to the car. I moved it around and popped it a few times and it felt better but I didn’t want to continue.

Enter Angry Runner. Seriously livid at my stupid body for betraying me again. Desperately hoping that this was just a fluke thing. I almost went home but really needed some alone time, so to the gym I went. Got a decent work out there fueled by frustration. Pooped out on the bike ride and left.
