Not the best way to run.
Got up yesterday a bit later than expected and had to really hurry to head over to the Valley to meet some Solers for a 10 mile trail run. Of course, I was out of Clif Bars, my favorite pre-run meal. I thought, no problem--I'll just stop at the Speedway and get a PowerBar. I know they have them there.
Got to Speedway on the corner at 7:45 and they were CLOSED! Closed? You're a freaking gas station! People drive before 8am! Grrrrr....
Sped to another Shell station and all they had were rice krispie treats and granola bars. I opted for the latter.
Sped 50mph through the valley and finally made it there at 8:05. I felt sooooooo bad because I know how much people get annoyed when people are late. Apologized profusely and then started my run.
I love running with those guys! They are so much fun. About 45 minutes into it though I felt my gas tank running out. I of course was out of gatorade at home, too, so it was water and gu time.
It helped a LITTLE bit, but I was soooooooooooo dead tired. I felt like I couldn't keep up. Finally made it back to the car and headed home. I ate leftover brunch food from Saturday (yum) and tried to rehydrate. I took a warm shower, and then PASSED OUT in bed with Mugsy until 2!!!! I guess it was my body's way of showing me it was pissed off for making it move for so long with no fuel.
When I got my tired ass up, I headed straight to the wholesale club to buy a huge thing of gatorade and ClifBars.
Sorry, body--I promise I won't do it again! Please don't hate me. :)
