A Blah Run is Better than No Run......

Today was a "blah" running day....here's why:

* Today was speedwork day, which always kicks my butt
* I had side cramps throughout the run
* I had to go to the bathroom for the last 3 miles
* I felt like I didn't have any energy, and my legs were heavy
* My headphones kept popping out of my ear
* I just wasn't mentally into the run like I should have been
* I didn't find any money

Ran 5 miles total, including 2 miles of speedwork, but I was glad when I was done.....

Yep, I feel ya. At least you brought yourself to get up and do your speedwork. I have to do mine tonight, at least the weather will be awesome. Finally.

Gosh I admire you for doing speedwork, I practically want to die when doing intervals!! I'd much rather just run one speed.

Hmmm perhaps that explains my slowness....

I feel you on those blah runs but at the same time you gotta get them in. What now your going to find money on every run! Gosh! :)

that's pretty much how i felt today too, which is strange because i finally got to run outside and another damn artic blast is coming!

it still boggles my mind that one day we can have the best run, and the very next day we struggle to get through what should be considered an easy run. way to stick it out.

Like you said - better than no run!
