Well my expectedly hectic week has already taken a toll on my meticulously planned schedule, I don't even know why I bother.
Last night I was planning 4 lovely miles of hill repeats when my phone beeped with a reminder for my 5:15 hair appointment. It's no secret, I love my hair dresser, and even if I didn't need the cut (which I did) I would still go see her. She just had her 2nd baby and this is her 2nd week back to work, so I was excited to catch up with her.
John and I actually changed to head out to run once I got home from there, but Peachie went crazy and got so upset when we were leaving to run that we decided on a 2 mile walk with her instead. I wasn't super bummed about not finishing out my miles for the day, they will get tacked on some where else, and since this is a cut back week, I am more concerned with quality miles than quantity.
This morning I woke up with the alarm and headed out for 7 miles with 3 @hmp. I made it maybe a 1/4 mile before I turned around, went home, and curled up with Peachie for some more sleep, a leisurely morning, and a big breakfast. I have no idea what happened, but as I started running I just didn't have it, I didn't care about my paces and didn't have the excitement to be out for an hour, and again, I would rather change my plans, wait until tonight and have a quality run that I will feel good about rather than suck it up this morning and feel disappointed all day.
Today is the last day of August and I refuse to let it end without a stellar run, so I have something to accomplish tonight.
Fun Fact: I have been seeing lots of rumors that Pumpkin Spice Lattes are out at starbucks- this is my absolute favorite and really the only kind of coffee I will drink! I am really excited to hit up SBux tomorrow AM and see if these rumors are true! Are you a pumpkin spice fan? Does your starbucks have the heavenly drink out yet?
