I was a total organic runner this morning. Do you know what that means?? You just RUN.
no caffeine before my 6:30 am run (I’m trying not to take in too much caffeine- I don’t want to build up a tolerance!);
no ibuprofen (an my joints could totally tell- yikes on the knees & feet!);
no inhaler (I have ‘exercise-induced asthma’, and even though I have it mostly under control, I do use my inhaler when it’s cold);
no i-pod (awesome, I had to hear myself breathing extra heavily);
and no Garmin (the Garmin & i-pod were by accident, not by choice. I accidentally left them at home in my “running drawer.” Bummer.)…
How do people do it??
No, I’m kidding. Sometimes I really do like to just get out there and RUN without my whole getup. (I’m seriously like the little cartoon runner guy with my plethora of running junk!) But on a Monday morning where I didn’t get near enough sleep and I’m exhausted from my wild weekend, I really coulda used some Queen & R Kelly to pump me up!
I made it though, and I was okay. It wasn’t my best run. But it wasn’t my worst. My running partner had somewhere to be at 8, so she was “hustling” to get her run in….I just followed behind her as quickly as possible trying to keep up! I really thought we were hauling tail (like sprinting!) but she said we were averaging about 9:10 miles. ??? Uh, that certainly didn’t match up to how it felt. Definitely one of these kinds of mornings….
Oh well, ya win some, ya lose some.
(I still haven’t had any caffeine and it’s about to kill me! I’m itching for a cup of coffee. I have a problem. Admitting it is the first step, right?)
Hope you’re having a fabulous MONDAY!!!
P.S. Do you ever run organic??
