Last night I was pretty happy that I only had to run 5.5 miles according to my training schedule. Granted, I planned to run them fast, but something about not having to run those extra 2.5 miles (or more!) appealed to me.
Maybe it's that I've been having a really tough time dragging myself out of bed the past two mornings. Maybe it's the huge canker sore I have on the tip of my tongue. Maybe it's the fact that I've been sleeping like crud because every time my bruised toe catches on the sheets I wake up. Whatever it is, I'm exhausted.
Still, I ran those 5.5 miles and I ran them fairly speedy. I wrapped my sore toe in first aid tape and it didn't bother me at all while running, just afterward. Apparently, according to the people in the LJ Runner's Community, my toe is still in the "hurty" stage and will stop hurting eventually. I hope it happens before this weekend. I've got 18 miles on the books for Saturday and then, on Monday, I'm signed up to run the Park Forest Scenic 5 Mile Race.
All of that probably means I should get some more sleep, huh? At least I finished my book (The Alienist, by the way) so I don't have that tempting me to read when I should be sleeping.
