TurboFire Rest Day. That meant it was a long run day for me :-) I decided to do it first thing in the morning to get it out of the way. Ben took the day off so we could spend the day with the kids before they went back to school and before Ben went back to work.
I got up and made breakfast. I always eat before my long runs and I like to give myself a half hour to and hour after eating before I run. I also decided to do some foam rolling because my legs were so tight from my HIIT workout last night.
I was hoping to beat my time from last week but it didn’t happen :-( My legs were sore from the HIIT and I could feel them the whole time. I had side cramps and there was several times I just wanted to stop. But I didnt. I ran the whole way even though towards the end I wanted to cry. My legs hurt so badly. I am definitely not going to do a HIIT workout the night before my log run again.
I was completely wiped out when I got home. I was also feeling a little bummed that my run didn’t go well. I was doubting whether or not I was going to be able to do a half marathon. 9 miles was so hard – 13 seemed impossible. It was hard to get out of my little funk. I had to keep myself busy so I wouldn’t think about it. I know that I just have to keep working on it and I’ll get to my goal. I won’t give up.
My legs were pretty much dead for the rest of the day. It hurt to walk. I decided to take rest for the rest of the day so I can have a decent workout tomorrow. I did a 5min plank to end my day.
