LSD (Long Slow Distance):

16.75 mi – in that I walked about a mile. 2:45ish time.

 

Mistake’s I made from today’s run:

 

Mistake 1: I woke up wayyyyy too late. At about 10am I woke up. And at about 10:40am I was walking out the door.

This is a mistake because the forecast was supposed to be super duper warm today. I knew that. So why did I wake up late? Well I forgot to set an alarm, and I was freakishly tired. Causing me to oversleep. Everyone knows you’re never supposed to be outside for very long from approx. 10am-3pm, since this is when UV rays are at their worst. So why did I go outside for 3 hours during this time period? I have no idea. I’m an idiot.

Mistake 2: I didn’t plan my run, I just ran around trying to get to 16mi.

I spent most of my run trying to think of places I could run just so I could get 16. I ended up getting over 16, which isn’t that bad, but that means I worked harder than I had to (lazy probs.) Also, I ended up running in places where there was no shade. I’m brilliant.

Mistake 3: I wore a running skirt for a long run.

Apparently it is best if you have a thigh-gap going on in order to wear a running skirt on a longer run. Because I have ZERO thigh gap, and I wore a running skirt. My inner thighs rubbed together SO BAD because there wasn’t any material between my inner thighs. I looked ridiculous running because I didn’t want my thighs to touch. And yes, that is an impossible task for me. And just to clarify, there ARE spandex underneath the skirt, they just aren’t super long! Figures!

Mistake 4: I didn’t put on an sunscreen.

This one is pretty self explanatory. This was a BIG no-no. It just didn’t cross my mind to put on sunscreen, you know, in the hottest time of the day, so as a result my upper body looks like a lobster. It’s reallllllly bad. And it hurts. I want to cry.

There were probably plenty more, I’m just kind of cranky right now because my sunburn is screaming at me, I had to take an ice cold shower, and I have been working on graduation things all afternoon.

So here, enjoy some pictures.

I tried to plan a game of "See How Many Pieces Of Popcorn I Can Put On My Dog Before She Wakes Up."  .... I got one.

We were waiting in line for the car wash. And yes, that is Sonic. Don't judge. My mom had a Diet Sprite, I had apple slices and I had bought chocolate milk at the gas station before that.

I hope everyone had a great day today and didn’t make as many mistakes as I did!

My running partner Mirda went on a run today too. She ran in a running skirt as well, but she as a thigh gap so everything was just fine and dandy for her. Lucky little son a gun.

Run on.
