Well I had one of those days. The sun is out in London today so I figured I take advantage of it sine I'm sure it wont last long. I quick run down to the London Eye and back 3 miles cake walk. HA! I was wrong so very wrong. I hit mile one with cramps in both calves and feet...that's new and never happened before. I also hit mile 1 at 15:30 also never happened before that is way slow like 3 minutes slower than my slowest miles have ever been.
So I took a stretch break at the Parliament building a decent one like 5 minutes and headed on my way back to the house at a running pace. I made it about half a mile before I had cramps so bad I wasn't sure I could walk the last 1/2 mile home. I took another stretch break which allowed me to walk home. My 1.5 mile run took 25:10! What the heck!
I guess the saying is true: If you put shit in you will get shit out! Plan of attack lots of water and better food...aka fruit, veggies, water, and maybe a little time off my feet today. Yesterday I walked 11 miles for the Chilly Challenge. London makes it so easy to clock miles because you have to walk every where. Well for me that means a 30-45 min. walk between all places to I make sure I get my heart rate up and make it extra cardio for the day.
On a positive note at least I laced up and hit the pavement for some miles!
I hope you all have wonderful and productive days!
