It was hard getting back into our school routine. I was looking forward to school starting but adding back in homework, school lunches, breakfast (Bg always ate at the sitters), etc, I really felt a bit overwhelmed. Bg started soccer and I am playing softball and those activities seemed to take up all our evenings.
I haven't really run since before the state fair, so I knew with my upcoming half, I needed miles. I ran on Saturday but was exhausted. Instead of running my little circle loop at the local park, I ran around town. I ran about 5 miles from my car when I back began hurting again. Boo. But since I was 5 miles away, I had to get back. It was a hard return trip, but I finished, although slow.
Mile 1: I have no idea, forgot to turn on my app.
Mile 2: 9'46
Way too slow for my goal race time. I may be in trouble!
Plus, the end of summer always means horrible allergy attacks for me. I was miserable last week and there was no way I was able to run:
The day before my half marathon I tried to eat a big lunch and drink lots of water. This is a Memphis burger from a local BBQ joint called Oink and Moo. It is heaven on a bun.
