Boomer Sooner and the lame mile

Friday night I had a horrible headache so I didn't run. I thought for a second that running may beat it out of me, but I'm glad I didn't try. The people at the gym may not like me enough to clean up after me if I barf on the 'mill.

Saturday I had free tickets to the OU game, so of course I went. I overslept til 9am when there came a knockin' at my door. It was myfriends there to pick us up! I had time to get ready, but no run time. We didn't get back home until 10.30pm, so no running then either!

BOOMER SOONER!!!





(side note: bossman saw this and said it's sad if that is the best pair of jeans I have. Yes, yes it is...)




Sunday I finally got out on the road after church. Now, I've heard you are supposed to take time off from running to recover, but I had 2 days off and almost died! It seems over my start to running that time off = bad run for me. If I were a big-time runner like some of the ladies whose blogs I follow, recovery time would make sense. But only 3.1 per day, and 2 days off made that 2 miles I tried awful!

Last night I went to the gym. I made it 1.75 and quit. My hip hurt. My ankle hurt. My legs were tired. I couldn't breath. ...so upset. That's the stupidest run I've ever done.

I'll be back on the 'mill tonight. Positive thinking must start now. I have to be ready for Saturday. I've been doing 5ks each day, and I'm not going to let one this weekend kick my butt.



What shoes do you run in?

How many days do you run each week?


For those who were wondering, I did in fact make it through the entire trip Saturday w/o spending a dime. Free tickets, free ride, free food/drink passes, and I found free parking. I know, you're jealous.

  1. I run in Brooks Adrenaline GTS 12. Love them! I try to run at least 4 days a week. I'm currently training for a half marathon, so I'm pretty good at keeping my running schedule.

    1. I haven't tried those on. I'll check them out. I am planning to do my first half by next summer. Good luck to you!
