Today was supposed to be a 22 mile run day. I was pumped about wearing my new Pearl Izumi jacket that I won from Gazelles on Crack's giveaway. (Check out her blog, it's awesome). The jacket fits perfectly and I couldn't wait to wear it for a run. Just look at it. It's beautiful and neon!
I'm kind of disappointed in today's run, but I don't want to get injured (well, I probably am, but I don't want to be seriously injured). I only have two months until my first marathon, so pushing too hard isn't a good idea.
When I have a rough workout, I try to remember that the body is a funny thing. It has good days and bad days and days that can't be explained. You do what you can, but you have to listen to your body.
Anyone else have a long run this weekend?
