Ankles, knees, and hips oh my!

Sigh. Today's run did not go as planned. I was hoping to continue my sub 8 minute/mile streak, but fell super short.

I can list all of the reasons why I didn't run faster ... Aches and pains in my right ankle, both knees, right hip, and tummy issues beforehand, but it still doesn't change the fact that I didn't deliver.

What's amusing to me is that I'm disappointed in my performance, but really shouldn't be. I still got outside and ran 8 miles. I ran on Tuesday and Wednesday so my legs were anything but fresh. I changed up what I ate for breakfast beforehand. And I ran a partially new course.

Mile 1 8:03
Mile 2 7:57
Mile 3 8:03
Mile 4 8:25
Mile 5 7:31 (what was I thinking??)
Mile 6 7:53
Mile 7 8:39
Mile 8 9:01

Oh and I threw up a little when I got back to my car (fortunately not IN the car).

I tried a new pandora station, hip hop and pop work out station. It was good and kept me motivated.

Definitely picked a nice cool time to get my run done.

How I felt after running and subsequently puking (gross GU flavor blackberry)

Rocking my pink pro compression socks.

Massive lunch I made myself after I showered. Two eggs, red beans, cheese quesadilla, and chopped green bell peppers, onions, and chorizo. Lots of sour cream and hot sauce please!

And of course a silly picture of Honey while we were driving to pick Mason up from school.
