This week was a draining week of training, I felt fatigued on all of my runs. I ran 3-miles on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday – all very slow. I’m not exactly sure why I’m so tired, but I’m going to blame the mosquitoes – because it certainly couldn’t be the almost 3 month hiatus I took from running. Anyhow, I’ve tried everything, but nothing keeps the blasted bloodsuckers away from me. I get about 700 bites on every run and the constant itchiness makes me want to rip my legs off.
Today, my mosquito-pimpled legs and I ran 8.45-miles. I opted for a 10/2 run/walk – it slowed me down quite a bit, but it got me through the workout feeling stronger than the other runs this week, even though it was pretty darn hot and humid. And sunny – got to love that part.
