What I thought about on my run today Part 2

  I had my yummy breakfast cookies & almond milk for breakfast this morning before my run. If you want the recipe you can find it on my Foodskies section. They are really good, and of course I go the recipe from Pinterest aka The Best Website/App Ever!


Here is the route from my run today:

Marathon Training Long Run 6.5 Miles by haleymg at Garmin Connect – Details.

So here are some of the things going through my head as I was running today:

  1. The CIM is in 28 days!!
  2. I feel heavy 😦 I could use the excuse that I haven’t been running as much, but we all know I’ve been going out & drinking way too much since living downtown.
  3. Mmmmmm beer….Murphy’s Stout. Yum.
  4. DO NOT wear heals the night before you plan on running the next morning.
  5. I need to get some new shoes before the CIM. Yay for $15 rewards from Fleet Feet!
  6. Jesus Christ my pace is all over the place.
  7. I really feel out of shape. Time to stop f-ing around and eat the way I’m supposed to.
  8. Ooo The Rind, a cheese bar? What?? I’m gonna be there all the time when that opens!
  9. Mile 3 & no pain. YES!!!
  10. I love the sounds of the leaves as they crunch under my feet  🙂
  11. I don’t love almost slipping on them though.
  12. Love this song! (These Arms of Mine, Otis Redding)
  13. Now I’m gonna have this song stuck in my head for the rest of my run, but that’s okay.
  14. Can you get the fuck out of my way? You all seriously have to walk across the whole sidewalk?
  15. Stop being a bitch Haley.
  16. I want a Subaru!
  17. Why is my hand sticky? I know that happens when I have energy gels, but I haven’t had one. What the fuck?
  18. …these arms of mine, they are burning, burning from wanting you. These arms of mine…
  19. Hell yea, 6 miles and no pain!
  20. I’ve missed  running!
  21. Done!

As long as I feel good (no foot pain) these next couple of days I’m going to start back on my training schedule. Which makes me really happy 🙂 Not doing my usual training has kinda got me stuck in a rut. But not anymore! The realization that my first marathon is less than a month away hit me hard while on my run today. Usually I feel light, fast and like I could run all day. Today it was more like heavy, slow and struggling. Still good to run, but it definitely wasn’t my best.

Zahara loves her mom so much. When I come home she always has to be all in my face. Don’t mind my face in this picture, I just got done running.


Well happy running all! Have a great rest of your weekend.
