More Bellyachin'

I ran 16 this past Saturday, and it went pretty well. And I'm super thankful. Because everything since then has been complete and total shit. I apologize for the colorful language, but sometimes nothing else will do.
Today was scheduled for a seven miler, with four of those miles being at 9:00 pace. I may have gotten the four in at target pace (Chris was slightly ahead and had the Garmin). I don't know and I don't care. It doesn't really matter if you feel like complete shit (there I go again). I DO know that I had to walk the last mile home, because I was completely spent.
There were many sabotaging factors:
  • I was sweating Pinot from last night's book group
  • I stayed up too late watching trash TV when I got home from book group
  • In an attempt to please my children, I prepared and ate a completely shitty dinner.
So, today I am declaring that I will be even more self-centered than normal for the next four weeks. I'm going to eat well and endure the complaining of my kids. I'm going to go to bed on time and endure the complaining of my better half. Social events (which, at best, are a struggle for me) are going to be kept to a minimum. I'm entering my pre-marathon isolation chamber. I will see you on October 3. If you see me between now and then, ignore me, because I'M GRUMPY!!!!
