Thursday form run: 45 minutes. after work.

Carrier Park. (Super flat, click here to see the map, it’s approximate.)

This run really was a bummer. I ran quite a bit less distance that I did last time for the same amount of time… I just couldn’t loosen up, felt tight the whole time, my feet were tight, my calves were tight. My stomach started tensing as soon as I started, my shoulders were up near my ears and I just kept trying to chill out. I was a wreck, really. (Wah Wah Wah!)

I didn’t enjoy it, but I ran the entire time, full 45 mins. I wasn’t in the best form… I didn’t injure anything or hurt anything, but I just didn’t enjoy it.

Scale: 4/5. Maybe I need to start running in the morning, or only when it’s really cool. I think the warm air is just too much for me right now. My heart rate was alright; I didn’t feel like I could get a full breath today; I kept yawning as it was the only way I felt I could get a full deep breath. Something’s going on, I don’t know what, but something.

Okay, that’s all.
