That's what I'm going to blame it on. ;) Yup, I need new shoes. I haven't bought a new pair in a year now and I think it's time. That run killed me and that made me really frustrated. From the moment we started running my legs hurt with every step. The entire run my legs hurt. I never really got into a rythm. That was probably the most frustrating thing of all. Usually by about mile 3 or so I get into a bit of a rythm and am able to just stay there. Not so on Saturday. It may have had something to do with my bladder needing to explode at about that time, I'm not sure.
The weather was beautiful for a run. Although I was sweating like a pig. That is something that has definitely not happened in a while. I am totally all about Lori's reasons that it didn't go as well as I'd hoped. I was already tire by the time we got to running. I'm not used to running after already having a full day. I think that did impact my running. I am excited that we have more time to do better! Yeah! And Erin I don't know what you're saying about the 10 miler. With the way you were running last week you will kick my butt! I guess we shall see on Saturday!
To sum it up, the 8 mile 14 miler sucked.
