Wednesday evening I was planning to make up my run. But by the time I left tutoring at 6 and got in the car...my priorities shifted a bit. I was literally half-way to the gym when I made a u-turn and headed back to my house. Where I proceeded to nap. For an hour and a half. I did manage to peel myself from my bed to jump on my bike (indoors of course), but it was a struggle. Thursday I redeemed myself somewhat--I did actually make it to the gym and knock out the 5 miles in my training plan. But after the prior few days of near stagnancy, my muscles were feeling it today! I have been practically living in my recovery socks:
|So sexy, I know|
Two other fun reminders of how close the race is arrived this week:
This bondi band (running headband) I ordered!
I know, how adorable. I had toyed with the idea of running in some sort of tiara (because why NOT do that if it is socially acceptable at a race??), but when I saw this headband on the bondi band website, I knew it was perfect. A tiara that can keep my unruly hair outta my face and sweat outta my eyes? Win. A dream come true for this running princess! ;)
Also, I received this email in my inbox yesterday:
Better get my "glass running slippers" ready! I'm gonna need them on Sunday's 12-miler!! Yikes!
How do you stay motivated in your training when running is the last thing you want to do?
