I really wasn't feeling it today. I stayed up a little too late last night, slept in this morning as it was raining and cool, and then puttered around the house with laundry and out to the grocery store to stock up for the party tomorrow. But as I sat here, it seemed stupid to let a little drizzle ruin a 50° opportunity to get out and move. But my spirit was also a little crushed by some thoughtless comments from my husband about how I don't push myself enough because I should've improved faster than I have. Then again, I've been known to get out the door just to prove him wrong in the past so maybe he thought he was being helpful.
There was just barely enough time to get in 3-4 miles, shower and get ready for dinner out with my mother-in-law. So I headed out into the damp, dark day and tried to find the motivation to run (ok, jog) more than I walked. I had some tunes to help me along, but pain in my LAC (left ass cheek) and shins wasn't helping me along. So I just tried to slog through it. It wasn't pretty, but I got 3.78 miles done and I'll call that good for really not feeling like doing any (even if at 13:27 pace). I may or may not have gone to dinner with damp hair.
