I suck

So I just can't bring myself to go out and shuffle through 17 miles by myself in this crap. I'm calling it a recovery day and will move on as if this weekend never happened! In my head I know that I do not have any endurance issues so this 17 miler doesn't mean much. It's more my ego at play wanting to get in the total weeks mileage.

So I am going to be smart, and a sissy today and will at least try to get the house in semi decent order before heading to the banquet and chowing down on good food that I didn't earn today. Oh well!

If anyone deserves a real rest day it's you! Don't be so hard on yourself. I hope you enjoyed the day off!

Of all the people for whom that post title does NOT fit! Hey, I wouldn't run either in that kind of weather.

Hey...you don't suck...taking those recovery days are smart training! Just as long as you don't string a bunch of them together, which I couldn't imagine you doing. ;-)

This weekend totally shredded all of my plans. Couldn't swim on Saturday, because CSU was closed (didn't find out until we made it down there), but did lift weights at Progressive. Saturday night, we bailed on Wicked, because the roads were treacherous ($150 down the drain). Then, Sunday, I bailed on the Shamrock 15k, but did ride my bike for 1.5 hours. I'd say we just move on from here. 50s by Thursday!

As you and all have said, E.... it won't hurt you to miss this one run, and you have plenty of time to train before Boston. Pete and your training will get you ready!

Good job sticking to a rest day. It was an impossible weekend to be out.

Our neighborhood never plowed until Sunday afternoon -- when all the snow had melted. We shoveled about four feet of snow and just drove over the rest.

I think there was a statewide ban on plowing. There were plenty of trucks out, but I didn't see any with their plows actually down. Perhaps that's when we get out the tennis racquets for our feets.

You COMPLETELY do not suck! You're just being smart about not trying to do that much distance in that kind of weather. Have fun at the banquet!
