Yesterday (Tuesday) I went up to our new house (we should still close by the 19th) and ran Walker Ranch.. The trail is truly amazing to me and I'm giddy with the idea that it's by our new home. I was immediately hypoxic and short of breath (my finger nails were purple), HR was quite high. I ran 1:05 for the 7.5 miles and walked frequently to keep my HR cap of 160. Average of 147 for the loop. I bonked huge at the end which almost never happens to me, but I've said in the past, bonks aren't the worst thing in the world. I stopped and sat down on a log for a few minutes because I was dizzy. The colors were amazing! The blue sky with the dark green trees. Silence that is rare in this world with just a breeze blowing through the pine trees. Sitting there numb, for that moment, I was so completely content and happy it was almost overwhelming. It was one of the best runs ever..
Zero miles for me today. No excuses really.. I just didn't get around to getting out. I'm very fatigued today but that's not a reason to not run. I need a coach.. anyone?
