One word for this run: DEFEAT!

Tomorrow we have a big day planned and I knew I would be tired so I thought I would go out running tonight. The winds didn't seem too high so I thought it would be a good run. It's like 84 degrees. I really don't take the heat like I used to, but I think this was more of a mental defeat than a physical defeat.

My goal was 16 miles tonight, but I got a good 4 miles in and had already downed 10 oz of fluids. I decided this week that I was not going to do Des Moines so I think the combination of stress, heat, and no goal, I stopped. :( I am so disappointed. I run to relieve stress and when I couldn't finish the run I was so mentally defeated that stopped at the cemetery and just cried.

4 mile run; 1 mile walk; RPE - 5

  1. It was way too hot to be outside, much less on a run at that time.
