Mistake number two. I really didn't want to run right after having eaten but I figured I had get out there. Hello side cramps!! Let's head back to mistake number one, not allotting my self enough time. I was down to the wire. I had only 45 minutes to get a 42 min run in. That had to include the driving time back to the house. High five to myself, I got it done and met Miss R right after she had gotten off the bus. That messed with my focus because I was worried about getting home on time.
Mistake number three, spin class then less than an hour later, run. For some, this may be nothing but for this lady, legs felt like I was running through sand! All of my lower body was feeling it. I was wanting to quit the whole time. Enter the self talk. I knew a yucky run was inevitable, I had been having way too many good ones. I kept thinking,
- Don't eat so close to running
- Run before spin class or other classes
- Make enough time for a run so I don't have worries about being somewhere. I can just focus on the run.
- Most importanly....Schedule/plan better!
