Today was just not my day to run. I am proud to say that I have been running pretty consistently, which is important. This week I have run on Sunday, Monday, and this evening, except that on Sunday and Monday I ran with my husband around our development, which at the time, I thought was difficult! I was more than happy to go back to the American Tobacco Trail after work and decided to run 4 miles (since we ran 4 miles on Sunday and 3 on Monday). Wow though, it was HARD. I'm not sure if it was because of the temperature (it was 89 degrees after it being in the 70's this week), or that I didn't eat (the past two days I have eaten something before the run, although today I had tons of water), or that my body was just tired. I'm not sure, but yeah, today wasn't an easy run. It doesn't help that my breathing isn't the best according to my husband (he says that I sound like I am in labor and would probably stop less if I breathed correctly), and the fact that I didn't eat any food beforehand, although over the past couple of days I have had some crazy GI issues immediately after running hence me not eating today.
I would LOVE some suggestions on what I should/could be doing better!
