Another Afternoon Run Fail :(

I don’t know what it is about me and running anytime other than the morning…it just never works out. Today I was feeling extra tired, like I have been all week (not sure what that’s all about), so I turned my alarm off at 5:30 and slept until 7am and got ready and headed to class without doing my morning 4 miler. I planned to just make it up this afternoon. I had really good intentions too! I came home from class, ate a PB&J for lunch and planned to do some school work for a few hours before running. Well when I headed out for my 4 miler, 3 hours after lunch, my stomach felt awful! I had a killer side stitch within the 1st 0.1 of a mile. This is the same thing that ALWAYS happens with my afternoon runs. So knowing it would just continue to get worse, I turned around and got Sadie and we went on a nice walk. I then came home and did a strength workout. So at least I did SOMETHING today. I’m just mad at myself for sleeping in. So this week I will be short 3 miles (from Wednesday’s run that I also skipped by sleeping in). I will make up today’s run, tomorrow morning and it’s looking like it will be on the treadmill because I am still a little weary of running in the dark all by myself. And since I will be getting up at 5:15 so I can run before class, the sun won’t be up until after I am finished. I guess in the grand scheme of things, missing a 3 miler is definitely NOT detrimental. But still, I feel like a slacker! I am so ready for class to be over tomorrow and for my weekend to start!! Any fun plans this weekend?


  1. Don't be so hard on yoursefl. You've been running a lot more than usual lately. My body rejects runs sometimes too.

    No fun planned - just homework. Ugh.

  2. I feel your pain - the same exact thing always happens to me when I do that! Don't beat yourself up! Hang in there! :)
