This run was absolute proof that I have not been eating or running like I should be. Other than long stressful hours at work (and that really doesn't count) there is no excuse other than poor choices and laziness. I am absolutely disgusted with myself and hopefully that disgust can help me straighten my path.
Payton and I went out for 6 miles and neither one of us had the motivation. We ran at 4 in the afternoon on a nice cooler day, but it was still 84 degrees and sunny so it was still a bit on the warm side. The sun drains me and I thought it was more overcast than it actually was. I was tired, but did OK for the first three miles, but then it started to catch up with me and I had to take a few walking breaks to keep my breathing under control. I took a couple more walking breaks through the 3 miles home and feel like an absolute loser right now. I know I have been doing this to myself lately, but I am having trouble with motivation and self discipline to get back on the right track.
This valley has been way too long.... WAY TOO LONG!!!!
