I got stuck late at the office yesterday, and missed the 4:30 spin class I had planned on attending.
I had chiro at 6:15, so I went to that appointment dressed to hit the gym afterwards. I decided I'd run 5k on the revolving apparatus of death (treadmill) as it was pretty hot out yesterday.
I started running, and instantly regretted the handful (or two?) of dried apricots I ate. My stomach felt terrible.
5k quickly turned into "You only have to run for 20 mins". Usually once I get past that 20 minute mark, I can force myself to do anything.
At 20 mins, I was still feeling like crap but I decided to keep going.
This is where I'd like to tell you I banged out 5k and felt awesome afterwards.
But that would be a lie.
I only made it to 22 mins.
I know not every run is a good one, and I definitely now know that dried apricots make a terrible pre-workout snack.
It's a new day. Here's to rocking my workout tonight. Cheers!
