Things that were against me

Today, numerous things weren't in my favor when I decided to take a 3 mile jog:

1. I forgot to eat lunch.
2. So, I scarfed down an energy bar while I tied my shoes.
3. I think I'm dehydrated.
4. No, I think I was dehydrated BEFORE I ran.
5. I woke at 4am intending on running but instead chose to study.
6. Because I had a mid-term at noon.
7. Before today, I have logged a measly 66 miles this entire year.
8. Before today, I think I've run a total of 12 miles in the last two weeks.
9. Today was the first day in a while (well, since before I went to California) that it was warm.
10. I realized 1.5 miles into it that it was actually HOT.
11. Those extra couple of pounds I logged during my TDY didn't speed me up.
12. I realized that I should have given up procrastination, rather than sweets, for Lent.
13. Less than 20 days til ING and this is the best I can do?

You don't have to say it. I will.

I suck.

For real, this time. I'm turning over a new leaf. Priorities are as follows: Me, Troy, School, Running. In that order. Everything else can take a number.

Have a great day!

Hi Amy! Welcome back. Was it really that hot in central GA? LOL. You seem like an athletic gal. You can hang. Us Georgians need to rock the ING! At least as much as we are able :-)

Sounds like a little food and a lot of water would have done you a world of good ... especially now that it's warming up in North America.

Great list, but I suspect you'll discover that taking car of your first priority and running are intertwined.

Good luck on your test!

Trying to stop procrastinating was my new year's resolution. Some days are good, some aren't! At least you got out there and did it, that's what counts. Sometimes we all need to stop and re-evaluate our priorities, and it sounds like that's what you are doing. Don't be so hard on yourself. You don't suck! You'll do great in the race, just wait and see!
