Some days your training run is OK. Some days it’s hard. But some days you head out and nothing seems to go your way. That was my day yesterday…
I had this awesome plan to do a long sunset run across Tampa Bay last night. I was all organized and ready until I forgot coins for the parking meter. 🙈 Then my CGM (glucose meter) failed, which means I would have no idea what my blood sugar would be on my run. 🙈
I felt like going home and hitting the treadmill BUT I decided to go to the nearest gas station and leave my car there and continued on with the original plan. I had my hydration pack with me so I knew I had plenty of sugar in case I felt low.
And it was almost as if I was rewarded for sticking to the plan because I got to see the prettiest sunset. I was supposed to run 5 miles but it was all so damn perfect, I ran my long run 8 instead. I haven’t ran that far in months so my goal was nice & easy and it felt amazing!
