|I headed out for an easy recovery run. But it was more for my mental health than physical health. Yes, it felt good to get moving since my legs were feeling kind of stiff. But I really needed some Me Time. I spent the day zoning in and out thinking about this situation that's been bothering me. More than anything, I just needed to clear my head. So off to the track I went.|
I took it really easy and put no pressure on myself to meet some type of goal. Besides, I just ran 9.15mi yesterday and I really shouldn't be running today anyway. I just tried to zone out and listen to the music, stare into the sky, into the darkness, into headlights, into the stadium lights, checking out Orion and airplanes flying overhead. Just anything to get my mind off of my issues and the track. I truly hate track running. Luckily, I had it all to myself. So I found myself singing and praying, but mostly singing. And it felt good. During the cool down, I did lots of skipping. It was fun and felt good on the hamstrings. I also did some jogging, kicking my feet up to my butt, to loosen my quads. So I'm thinking I'll end the night with some chamomile tea. I haven't had it in a couple weeks.
Tomorrow, I have 20min scheduled. I'm thinking it's going to be a slow one along with the other runs for the week. We'll see. It would help if I were eating properly. I haven't eaten enough in the past couple of days. Back in the day after a long run, I wanted to eat everything, including the kitchen sink. I was not that way yesterday after burning 1000+ calories. So on that note, I'm off to work on yesterday's calorie deficit, that I'm sure carried over into today. Night all.
Cool Down = .36mi
