Run #10.5 - Sucktastic

This run flat out SUCKED!

I put on compression socks, pants, long sleeves, a jacket, gloves and ear warmers. I went outside, stretched a little, went inside. Took off the jacket, gloves and ear warmers. Switched shirts. Resumed my preparation to run. It was glorious weather! I should have just worn short sleeves and a skirt -- on Christmas Eve?!? Yes!

I ran down to the park and was pleasantly surprised to see it full of people. Picnics, kids playing on the play structure, dogs running around. It was busy! I noticed all of this because my legs were dead. I could not run. I tried to hard and it just didn't work. Then my body revolted. 

Did I mention this was supposed to be a 10 mile run?? Yeah, um, it was 2.8. That's it. Not even 3 miles. I just physically could not function.

I spent the rest of the day wondering if I had a stomach flu. It was miserable. Blah - tossing this run out of the memory bank. I'll do better next time!
