What Went Wrong

I felt that Saturdays run was a disaster. And I only had myself to blame. This is what I have learned from it and what I plan on doing differently.

1. I didn't eat well at all all week. I was depressed and had no desire to eat. Thinking that it will help me in training if I was a little lighter. Yeah, I need to eat and not be so depressed. Starving myself is not the way for me to go. My job gives us 5 free shrink appointments a year. I've gone before and the shrink that I have is one of the better shrinks that I have been to. She is also knowledgeable about the Boise running community.

2. I was dehydrated. I did not drink as much water & tea as I have been. All summer I have been drinking at least 2-32oz Nalgene bottles of water a day or more, not including the required coffee every morning. But with the colder temps, I have been drinking more coffee and hot chocolate. I need to drink more calorie-free and caffeine-free liquids.

3. I didn't run all last week. Yeah, I did Hip Hop Abs and some weights, but that is not running. I skipped my 5 mile tempo run Wednesday AND Thursday because I was tired. I really was tired and I fell asleep on break time at work. It was partially to being depressed, not eating enough and not getting my 8 hours of sleep. And being a slacker. Won't happen this week.

4. I need to stretch more. My muscles were tight, which was causing other things to get tight and hurt. And I need a massage. I have 3 or 4 Living Social/Groupon massage deals that I have taken advantage of. They are paid for. I just need to book the appointments.

5. My Saturday fueling was off. I was fueling too well. I do know that I will bonk if I ride my bike 30 miles and not have a snack, I don't know where my wall is when I run. So I over fuel. Breakfast was going to be toast with PB & jelly and coffee. Well, due to circumstances I had that, plus an egg and a cup of milk. The last few long runs I do, I usually have 4 gels/blocks/Perpetuem Solids. Well, this time was 1Hammer Gel+1Solid x2, then 2 gels at once. I got a tummy rumble after I did 2 gels at once. Which was at mile 10. I can get by with less calories then what I attempted. I can eat everything in the house after I finish my run.

Well, that is what I learned from my bad run yesterday. I am posting a pic from Halloween 2 years ago. I am not dressing up this year other then having black fingernails. I am working tomorrow night and my job does not really care if I dress up or not. They, I think would prefer that we don't. I loved this costume.


  1. Don't stress over one bad run! We all have them!! xo

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
