Run Streak Day 1401
**Warning, I tried to change some of the “salty” language to less offensive terms. But I ain’t guaranteeing that poop worked.**
Went for a 3 mile run and came home with 6. I am very used to sticking to a rigid training schedule which makes today such an oddity. I know that, as I slip back into the warm embrace of Mother Running, I need to focus on not overdoing it and getting myself hurt before I even get really started. But for some reason, when I got to the mile and a half mark, I felt like I would be a kitty cat if I turned around and headed home so soon. Besides, it was raining and what better way to kick off the new month than to embrace the glory of the heavenly showers that the running gods bestowed upon us? So yeah, I went for 3 miles before flipping a around and heading back to the house.
Luckily, I brought my handheld water bottle with me. It is something that I know I need to always practice with because the few ounces of fluid I carry during long runs actually strain my delicate shoulders. So I try to run with the bottle I use at events as much as possible. I was also taped up with some “Secret Life of Pets” band aides on my nips. I am damn happy I did so. I guess, in hindsight, I know I wasn’t only going to do 5k. But in hindsight, I should have let the rest of me know because I didn’t’ use any chafing protection. And that makes the part of me that knew my plan a dick, because I didn’t realize that I had chafed until I got in the shower. That poop hurt! Bastards!!!
- Keep pushing the limits my friends
P.S. – LSD = Long Slow Day, uncase you were wondering 🙂
