Bad Run Out of The Way

This morning I had a 7 miler on the schedule, but since I just switched training plans and am not used to a mid-length run before a long run I did 6.

Truth is, I was not feeling very happy, peppy or “runny” today. I had a bad run in with the scale and a crazy week left me with an anxiety attack this morning.IMG 6030 600x800 thumb Bad Run Out of The Way

The good news is I got my bad run out of the way for this week! I felt super slow, took walk breaks and got discouraged. But, I’m moving on to a great run tomorrow!!!IMG 6033 800x600 thumb Bad Run Out of The Way

    chocolate chip cookie dough. because like me, the chunks are the best part!

    okay, that was a bit of a stretch.

    i’m telling myself i’ll do 6 miles on my lunch hour. i can tell its going to be a bad run. but i’m trying to get geared up for it…

    Sometimes a run/some sort of heart-pumping exercise is what I need to get me out of a funk, so at least you did something productive!
    I would probably double chocolate chunk. I’m such a white girl, but I seriously love chocolate so much I sweat I’m made of it.

      PS: I lol’d at the ‘bad run in with the scale’. I am not usually trying to lose weight yet scales still scare the crap outa me. For this reason, I don’t own one. I don’t need that a-hole taunting me every morning. :)

    never start a weekend with a weigh-in. those are for mondays. sort of like checking your bank account after a trip. just wait til monday, because mondays usually aren’t the best anyways… :) just a tip.

    Hi Monica,
    I just found your blog from Hungry Runner Girl and I am SO excited to find another blogger that has struggled with eating issues. I was also heavier when I was younger and did the whole binge/restrict thing until it drove me to craziness and finally therapy. I’m doing much better now but I still have my ups and downs. Can’t wait to continue to read about your progress!

    You’re amazing!

    Cherry Garcia, cause I am so delicious! LMAO I am so ridiculous!

    Just so ya know I would love to have your bad run! I am much worse! Tomorrow is another day

    So I realize I’m a little late to the comment party on this one, but I just found your blog and you are too funny so I just HAD to catch up on your posts over my lunch break!

    I absolutely love your comment that you got your “bad” run in and are onto a great one tomorrow – sometimes I think that way too, and it is absolutely true. Runners inevitably have the occasional bad run and I like to “get mine out of the way” when it’s not an important run! It’s also a good mantra to use to stay positive when you’re feeling like a bump on a log!
