My Perfect A**!

This morning. Went out—with great trepidation— for a wee 35-minute run. Kept going. Legs like the wind. Felt fantastic! Could have run longer. Ended up with 52 minutes, 4++ miles. (All while listening to Episode 7 of the Ricky Gervais podcast, wherein our hero Karl uses the word "cobbler," to much ridicule. Seriously, when is the last time you took your shoes to the "cobbler"?)

What was all that moaning about in the previous post? Oh, the angst of the runner.

Coach says "keep track of what you ate and how you sleep before all your runs." So, dutifully, here's my report of last night's dinner, 9:30 p.m.:
One small bowl of gross canned half-cold (God, I am lazy) vegetarian barley (ha, i almost wrote "barely") soup; cheese and crackers.
Sleep: Went to sleep around midnight; woke at 6:45.

Run well, run badly; there's no sense to it! Bob says I hadn't yet recovered from my Big Race. OK, I'll buy that! "Load and recover," says Bold. OK, done!

Barley, huh?

If you start posting about your digestive results, I'm unsubscribing. :-)

Welcome to the life of a runner, kid.
Good job.

Oh thank you for this post. It gives me hope that I won't come doddering across the finish line on Saturday with the octogenarians and 10 year olds.

Oh- and congrats on a good run - Yay!

I'm still in my slump, but I'm going to try, try to come out of it tomorrow. Do you think this chocolate will help? No? How about the wine?

susie said...

Oh yeah...good for you!! See, how it's all about ME???? I'm really happy for you. Really:)

Thanks for the well wishes - I'll try not to disappoint you lot on Sunday.

Congratulations on that great run. Looks like you're getting the hang of this running thing.

Yay!!! **clapping hands**

I love being behind on blog-reading, because I can give advice, and 5 minutes later, it's taken! ;p

Don't take running advice from non-runners: in Italy we call this kind of advices "a pearl of wisdom".

Hah...'barely soup'...that's what Himself would call ALL of my vegetarian food...barely food.
