Forgetting things

Today was supposed to be my tempo day. I didn't want to get out and do it, but I was planning on just forcing myself to go. I just told myself, "get out the door and see what happens."

The weather was cold. And I set out faster than I intended just to warm up. Midway through my warm up mile, I noticed that something was odd. More specifically, somethings were bouncier than they were supposed to be.

I debated turning back to change into my sports bra. But the weather wasn't great and I didn't think I would venture out again if I went back.

So I set out to do some easy three miles. I ended up keeping a fairly brisk pace (brisk for me) of 8:26/mile. It also started raining a mile into the run reducing visibility. I guess it worked out for the best that I skipped a workout run.

I probably had the tempo miles in me. But after four hours of sleep, and rock star fueling (thanks to genetics prelim), it was nice to "rest."
Clearly studying hard . 
The run was a great way to kick off the Thanksgiving weekend. I probably will take it easy this week, because my shins have been feeling sorer than usual. 

I hope everyone's week is progressing nicely. And do you ever forget important things for a run? Do you usually head back or just go with it? 


  1. Haha, I've never forgotten my sports bra good thing!

    When I was a swimmer, really more when I was younger, I would wear my swim suit to practice so that I was ready. That meant I had to pack my underwear which I sometimes forgot to do!

  2. sometimes it's best to listen to your body instead of doing the planned workout. great job!

  3. I have never been able to work out without a sports bra, even though I'm pretty small. I have done elliptical workouts in just socks before!
