Hey yall, today was amazing. I think the main part was I didn’t have to work. Sounds really bad I know, but sometimes it’s nice to have a day off. I was going to run in the morning so I had no excuses to not run later in the day. However, there was a lady who was running along with her 2 children. Needless to say I turned around and walked away. Between there being kids and the mom being on the good treadmill, there was no machines left. I mean I don’t really want to be trying to train with children in there, plus my fiance was with me and he needed a machine. So we went back to my apartment.
On the plus side we then went swimming instead. My ultimate goal was to run and then swim. It makes sense to me to go get sweaty and then go cool off in the pool. It still worked out and I got to swim. Thankfully we (my fiance and I) decided to get out at a great time because out of no where a gazillion children showed up. Ok, so maybe not a gazillion but there was about 10. I felt so bad for the quiet lady with a baby because none of those kids showed respect and jumped in right next to her. I was like good grief that baby does not need to be splashed and neither does the mom. Eventually we left the pool a little tanner (that was me) and a little more red (my fiance).
My fiance left for work and I decided I should probably go run. So I went and it was awesome! I ran over 9 miles in a hour and a half. I still can’t believe I managed to do it. The only times I stopped were to drink some water, stretch, and the usual bathroom breaks. The beginning of my run felt like a breeze and I was like I got this. Towards the last 2 miles however, I thought I was dying. It was awesome to finish and finish well. I’m so happy with how it went. I did realize that I will need to start bringing a bigger water bottle.
It did end up being kind of an interesting run. I heard some people come in and awkwardly came out of the bathroom to them. They didn’t seem super happy to see me. I mean it was a couple trying to work out but I was like hey I’ve only gone half an hour. Anyways the girl kept eyeing me and then looking at her man. Apparently she wanted to talk to him or something but didn’t since I was there. The guy finished before the girl and sat in a chair that was right behind me. It was SUPER awkward. I’m running and thinking why in the world would you sit right behind me. Eventually they left when I had about 20 minutes left.
Later in the evening we took my puppy for a walk. She slept all day for whatever reason. I mean I took her on little walks through out the day.
I’m not sure if it’s the heat or what, but later in the evening she eventually got crazy and hyper. My fiance was awesome and jogged with her a little bit, since I ran a crazy amount earlier. It made me so happy to see him jog. It’s been so long since his pinched nerve has kept him out.
