Last night I had to send a really uncomfortable email to my coach: I told her that I didn’t run at all this weekend. I should have texted her earlier but like a guilty child I put off telling her as long as possible.
Truthfully, most of this weekend I felt really crappy. My co-workers all have little kids who have just gone back to school and the common cold is going around. On Saturday I was supposed to run a 5K in Davie and then round that off with a few additional miles for a total of 8. Instead I overslept and then just kept right on sleeping all damn day.
I woke up once to move from the bed to the couch and then I was right back to sleep. Cecil kept me company as I moved from the bed to the couch and then back to the bed.
What would I do without my best napping buddy? BTW, have I told you how much Cecil loves his haunted house? I love that he loves it!
Sunday I dragged myself out of bed and popped some Advil because I had the worst headache ever. Luckily it went away in time for us to head out to the Miami Dolphins game.
Being a season ticket holder for a team that is not playing up to their potential is REALLY HARD. This game was so so so incredibly disappointing. We left at the beginning of the 4th quarter so we could go grocery shopping before the store closed. Yes, that’s how bad the game was!
It’s crazy to remember that this time last year we were in London watching the Dolphins play at Wembley Stadium! That was so much fun, I really hope we get to do that again at some point.
Planning our next trip overseas is on my to-do list for after Chicago (Spain or Italy? I can’t decide!), but right now I’m zero’d in on the midwest.
This lovely little piece of mail arrived over the weekend:
Yep, Chicago just became tangible. I have something I can hold in my hands to remind me that this race is less than two weeks away! OMG! Can’t wait!
Today I need to get back on track with my running to finish out this taper the right way. No excuses!
How did your long run go this weekend?
Watch any football? I hope your team played better than the Dolphins!
