On tap yesterday –
Swim and Run
For a few reasons I chose to run first. I arrived home and quickly made my change into my running clothes.
Mile 1 – 9:26 nice warm up pace
Mile 2 – 9:02 legs begin to open up and feel good
Mile 3 – 9:00 time to pick up the pace a bit
Mile 4 – 8:34 my stomach gave me a warning at this point to head home but ignored it
Mile 5 – 8:40 stopped for a second to evaluate my stomach pains and ignored the warning again
Mile 6 – 8:28 decision time – walking would take too long so I would sprint as hard as you can to get home. This took major focus!
Mile 7 – 8:13 PLEASE let the door be unlocked!!! I all but crushed my dog greeting me at the door as I dashed for the bathroom
After I "gathered myself" I changed clothes to head to the pool. Drove to the Y, parked the car, walked into the pool….. then LEFT to head back home. Stupid stomach!
So this morning I am fine. I feel fine. Now I am processing my missed swim session. I know we cannot always nail every workout but I do hate it when I miss one. I am also a believer that I do not need to try and play catch-up. I am smart enough to know I have a full plate of training still remaining this week. I may have made a stupid call on my “warning signs” during the run yesterday but this girl does have a little bit of smarts about her.
