I had to run up to New Hampshire on Saturday to get my haircut. One of my best friends is my hairdresser. I wouldn't make an hour and a half drive to get my haircut if my hair dresser wasn't one of the best friends a girl could have. I got about 5 inches of hair cut off. I haven't had it this short in over 10 years.
Here is a pile of my hair.
New short hair cut.
Sunday I got up at 6:30am. I set an alarm for my day off. I wanted to get my 15 mile run it before I had to head out to spend the day shopping with my mom. I got up and ate my usual breakfast before a run. I had whole wheat English muffin with two tablespoons of peanut butter. I also had a cup and a half of coffee. I did my business and then I was out the door to get the run out of the way. By mile three I knew this 15 miler was not to be. I was tired. Not just uh, I don't want to be doing this I am a little tired. I mean exhausted. I got to about 4.5 miles and knew that I had to pack it in an turn around. I was slow too. My legs felt like lead and I could have just curled up and took a nap. Well, maybe not nap in public when it was 14 degrees out but you get the picture. It was so cold that my water bottle froze. So I turned around at mile 4.5 and headed back. I was very disappointed when I got home that my 15 mile run turned into a 9 mile run. How am I ever going to go 26.2 when I can't even get a 15 miler done. So week two of the marathon training was a big bust. Lets hope that next week is better.
I should start keeping a food journal just to make sure that I am fueling right. I am not sure if it was MS fatigue, poor fueling or just the cold that made me feel so sluggish and my legs so heavy. Here's hoping that I do not have a repeat.
