Who am I?Posted: June 22, 2011
Something weird is going on… after my 18 MILES yesterday woohoo… I had a pretty weird day.
I got home super tired and hungry and disgusting, as usual. I ate a wonderful yogurt bowl as I sat in the shower, letting the water massage my legs, as usual. Then I had lunch, read blogs, and took a nap… all normal-ish. The thing that upset me was how dead I felt before, during and after my nap. I felt like my run had just fully punched me in the face. I suppose I deserve that after pretending like I didn’t need to train for the upcoming marathon for a month.
I went outside to start the laundry and I left MY KEYS in the laundry room… the laundry room that locks automatically. Yep, I stood outside for 40 minutes waiting for someone to enter or exit the apartment building. I felt so annoyed. All I could think about was how thirsty I was and how bad I needed chapstick. Oh how I didn’t appreciate the things I had in my apartment until I couldn’t have them…
Finally someone let me in.
After dinner last night I was super tired AGAIN! My body was not loving my decision to train for the marathon. I can’t remember if I always feel like this after long runs, or if it gets better with time.
Today I feel quite a bit better, but I was reminded of my carelessness when…
I was sitting in a chair at the dining table, reading something on my computer… normal.
Then I just suddenly slid over to my right. I had been sitting on top of my right leg, which was bent under my butt. I just kept sliding and sliding, my leg got caught on the other side of the chair, and then I fell right over onto the floor. Hard. It hurt and I was scared, but mostly I just laid there thinking wtf just happened. The funniest thing is that for some reason I looked out the window to see if anyone had seen/heard me. omg You THINK people care what you’re doing…
So, now I am considering whether or not the run caused permanent brain damage. Seriously… Brendan thought my jokes were bad last night, but I wish that was my only problem right now.
Do long runs mess everyone up?
