What great friends! Love you guys! 😌✨💛 #sydneypenny#sophialoren#runningaway#movie#movieset#cinema#actresses#friends
What are you doing today? You wanna pick up some white cheddar cheese-its, and a fresh joint, and head down to the beach where we can let our dogs off leash and run with them into the Pacific Ocean and just swim n swim n swim away from all our worries...? 🐠 #runningaway#bewild#travel#getawaycar#indisguise#pink#love#bff

This one was rough!!! My legs have felt really heavy this week. (Notice that last weekend I said they were "starting" to come back... definitely not remotely "there" yet!) Not terribly surprising since last week was my first real training week volume-wise in months. (Re-)Adapting takes time! We also have a lot going on right now, and it'd be silly to think that life and sleep don't affect running.
So, yeah, I knew a long run was going to be hard this morning. Therefore, instead of heading right out the door, I did the dishes ... and vacuumed ... but preschool only lasts for so long! My "productive procrastination" now meant I was going to have to run faster than planned if I was going to get the miles in. I had also conveniently waited until it was nice and hot and humid. Way to make a hard run harder, eh? 🤦🏼♀️ Never mind the fact that I haven't run 14 miles consecutively since... Boston? Yep, Boston. In April. Almost 6 full months ago. 😳
Let's just say a lot of mid-run self-talk was needed to get this one done. Things like, "Be a grown-up, Ashley. You know how to run." 😂 I also kept telling myself that if I push through the hard now, it will be easier later. Finally, after almost two hours, my watch ticked over to 14. I plopped right down on the sidewalk. My legs were toast!!!
Thankfully they came back to life a bit after a round in my @rapidreboot. Serious life-savers, so make sure you enter to win a pair! (One post back.) And in the meantime... Someone please tell me that I'm not crazy and you also 1. Productively procrastinate a run to make yourself feel better about putting it off; and/or 2. Give yourself tough-love pep talks to get through a hard run. 😂
