The Run That Wasn’t

This morning I woke up at 4:00 AM. I got dressed in my running clothes and pulled my hair back into a ponytail. I went down to the kitchen and ate a banana.

Then I blinked a couple times, went back upstairs, put my pajamas back on and fell asleep for another 2 hours.

My eye was really scratchy, I just couldn’t imagine running for very long with that irritation. And overall… I just felt tired.

Sometimes you gotta give in to the rest. Recovery is an important part of a training plan, and my body has been under extra stress this week… so the sleep won.

I’ll try again tomorrow. 🙂


  1. Been there, certainly done that. Good to listen to your body.

    On a personal note, thank you for all the support over these last few weeks, both on my blog, and Twitter, I so appreciate it very much.

  2. Totally done that on many occasion. But not because I’d just recent eye surgery! Thats more than enough reason to skip a run if you ask me. I usually just go back to bed when I’m tired and not feeling up to running in the heat. Hope you’re eye continues to heal up. 🙂
