week 14 recap
Labor Day weekend! This means school and having no life goes back into full effect starting tomorrow. While I'm excited for the new school year, I could also use another day of rest from a lonnnng weekend. We had a wedding that we were both in, which turned out to be really fun. It will probably be the only time we get to be partners in someone else's wedding and it was really fun! But boy, I am beat! Really exhausted. Proof - the gym was open until 2 today and I could not even fathom getting up to go. I go when I'm tired all the time, but today is another kind of tired!
On Sat, I had a "shitfit" while running, I got really frustrated that my original bad knee was hurting moreso than the right knee, that I couldn't run as fast, had to go to the bathroom 3 times within 20 minutes of starting off my run, and more fun bodily issues that come along with pregnancy. Not a fun day. I ended doing a mile at a pace that I liked with blaring music on my treadmill. Sometimes the transition of running slow crap miles gets to me, other days I am just happy to still be running! This was one of the days where it got to me - BIG TIME.
On Sun, I was determined to get up to do the nike 10k - anyone else out there do it? I struggled, my original bad knee (left) on the inside was the problem. It became a walking/jogging (not sure if I can even call it running) event, but I became a part of history. Hehe. Pretty cool idea. Hope everyone had a good long weekend!
