Feeling Blue

Yesterday I woke up to rain drumming on my back door, so I decided to crawl back into the bed with the hubs and put my run off until lunch.  I should have known better because it was still running when my lunch break rolled around, so I decided that I would just have to get something done after work.  I ended up spending most of the night with my nose glued to the newest book I'm reading. 

So this morning I got up and got myself ready for a, what was suppose to be easy 5 miler.  There was nothing easy about it.  I never got into a comfortable running grove.  By mile 2 I wanted to turn around and head on back home but instead I opted to try a new route and ended up being shorted half a mile.  I only ended up running 4.45 miles.  I could have cared less.  As I sat sitting on my driveway stretching and drinking water, I thought about how easy it would be to run down to the end of the cul-de-sac and get that last .5 in, but I just didn't really feel like it.  I instead walked inside and took a nice hot shower.

I'm feeling blue this week.  Not sure exactly why.  I had a great weekend, an awesome run on Saturday, and even a better night with the my friend.  The hubs let me go to an all girls adult party.  It was a blast and I got to spend some much needed time away from the house and all it's responsibilities and got to act like me.

I guess another thing is my 30th birthday is coming up on the 12th.  I really have no qualms about turning 30.  I'm pretty excited about it actually.  I'm planning a cards night with friends.  We are suppose to have a Texas Hold'em tournament and it's $30 for 30.  $30 buy-in because I'm turning 30.  There is already $300 in the kitty and hopefully more people show up and I'll add to my winnings (already thinking I'm going to win the game, hey it's my birthday.)

Since I didn't post my workouts for the week, I'll get them on up.  It helped keep me accountable last week, so I'm hoping for the same thing today.  Maybe I need to post this on Sunday, so I'll make myself get up on Monday.

Monday - 5 miles (Didn't run them, moved the run to Tuesday)
Tuesday - 4.45 miles/abs
Wednesday - 5 miles
Thursday - 5 miles/abs
Friday - Rest
Saturday - 5 miles, I'm actually running in a 5K race so I'll have a warm-up miles, 3.1 tempo miles (ha), and a cool down mile for a total of 5.

Ab class here I come.
