That awkward moment when you are exhausted from going pretty hard during the week, so you take a nap Friday night after work, and the next thing you know, it’s 6 o’clock on Saturday morning when you wake up to your alarm on your phone screaming at you to throw yourself out of bed.
The only thing is that you have to be AT White Rock Lake at 6am; that is when marathon training starts.
And that, is where I should have been, but it was where I wasn’t. I didn’t think it would be the best idea to drive there, as we’d be half an hour late, and running by yourself isn’t very fun. I also figured that I needed the sleep. Like I said, I was busy during the week with work, content creation and blog writing, as well as going to networking events; I think my body was just exhausted and was trying to tell me to slow down. And slow down I did: I slept for an additional four hours after that. In addition, my IT band still hurts a little bit. I think it still needs more time to heal.
Excuses, I know. We’ve all got them. And they’re like booty holes. And today, while I don’t like them, was my day to have many of them. I will try to be better in the future, but today, I’m just gonna go back to sleep.
Make it up for me! I’ll be out there next week.
If you didn’t know, I’m training to run a marathon, and raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphona Society to fight blood cancer! You can learn more about my marathon (or make a tax-deductable donation to my efforts) at my marathon fundraising page.
