Well I left the house at 3:30 and returned at 5:15. I totally failed running my 15 miles. It is HOT and I was so tired I almost felt sick. My pace was good but I just couldn't hold it and slowing down seemed even harder. It is like this run was doomed from the beginning. I never run in the afternoon, but somehow I just thought I could whip it out by myself in the heat of the day? So mentally I feel horrible, and have little flickers of doubt floating around. What was I thinking? I have never not finished a run so I am not sure what to do with this?? Right now my face is bright as a cherry and my big fat blister has returned so I am limping around the house. Grrrrr!
Should I run 5 tomorrow to make up the miles or REST like I am suppose to? Sorry to disappoint anyone...I feel horrible. I can only take comfort in knowing that tomorrow is a new day...fresh slate. Hoping I can cut myself some slack and not pout the rest of the night. I'll give it my best shot!
Have you ever had a run you didn't finish? How do you come back strong for your next run?
