After the race on Sunday, I couldn't get myself up on Monday and run. Since I tutor on Mondays, I couldn't run right after work, and I had to be back from the run in enough time to shower for a meeting. I had to settle for a short 4.7. I didn't even warm up on the track. I was tired, sore and a bit miserable.
On Tuesday, again, I didn't get up, and I had to run after work. This time, I warmed up a little and was able to get in almost 11. The weather was perfect. I did a P90X3 stretch tape (dynamix) & five hip exercises, after running. I wanted to do a few more exercises, but I was exhausted and still sore, both from falling and actually running.
Today, I had a short day schedule, so I was home early. It was a little windy but not too bad. I did 1/2 mile on the TM, 1 mile easy, 4 miles at MP & 4 miles easy. The 4 miles at MP were a little fast: 7:43. After I had PhysioPhyx. That stuff costs a lot, so I'm not sure that I'll keep using it. Although, I has a bowl of pasta for breakfast, a huge brownie at work and a diet frozen lunch for lunch, I felt pretty dizzy after the run. That brownie alone was probably 1000 calories, so I can't imagine that I didn't have enough calories in me. I guess I needed some good carbs, instead of just sugar. Also, I've had a headache all day. I had the headache before the brownie, but sweets always give me a headache, so I'm not surprised that my headache never went away.
