Today’s Workout – Speed Work
Total Mileage: 7.05 miles
Total Time: 1:00:50
Average Pace: 8:37 min/pace
I may do another slow run later, but that is still to be determined.
I knew it was bound to happen eventually, but I finally had a crappy morning run. As a runner you start to know when you are due for a bad run.
I ran 5 x 1200’s and even though the pace was out of control, my legs just never quite got into it.
I finished the run and felt exhausted. I think my face pretty accurately explains the feelings going through my head. Sorry for the crappy lighting it was early.
I want this blog to be an honest place where I truly tell how I feel.
Today has been one of the hardest days I have had in a long time. I feel like my world has been turned upside down and I am trying to stay afloat.
I am just going to say it because it makes it easier – I lost my job today.
I have a million thoughts going through my head and I can’t even seem to make sense of them.
I am sure most of you know my story but I am currently living in Erie, PA while my husband is in medical school. I am our only income and work to support the both of us for the time being. This is a bit of a blow and hard for me to accept.
I know there is only one option, to pick myself up and get back out there. I wish I could convince myself of that right now but I will get there.
I thought about keeping this to myself, but then I wouldn’t be being honest. I want to show the good, the bad, and the down right hard of my life for you to see I am just like everyone else. Life doesn’t always go the way we want it to and it is about how we get back up.
I will get back up – it just may take me a little bit.
In the mean time I will leave you with this awesome quote.
Don’t worry, I will still be blogging just having a tough day!
