Why All The Sad Faces?

I didn't get my long run in this weekend...... It was a plan that just didn't make it to the table. After the long list at my Mothers, the mowing of my lawns, the cleaning of the pool and the babysitting(well dog sitting), I found myself out of time on Saturday.

Normally this would not be a problem as I would go Early Sunday morning...but this Sunday morning at 5:30 am I was heading south to pick up my son in Boston and attend a birthday party for my brother-inlaw. This would turn into a very long day, we didn't return until 10:30pm

The day wasn't a total loss as far as exercise goes because the party was at a beach on a pond. So, there was vollyball, tubing, skiing and horseshoes. I called it cross training, but it is still not the same as my much needed and wanted long trail run.

To top it all off, I have something scheduled monday night and am having more surgery Tuesday. So...I miss Tuesday night track and don't get a chance to run at all for a couple days. I am so bummed about that.

It is my battle plan to sneak in a good run on Wednesday if the pain is not too bad.....shhhhhhh.....don't tell anyone, I am supposed to be resting.

I feel for you I guard my weekend runs and my ADD doesn't cope very well with missing a run. I am the pit crew this weekend for my buddy that lives in Freeport who is doing the Mt Washington Bike race so I will be up there all weekend and traveling back on Sunday AM. So I have to figure out how to get my two hour run in around the parking lot at the top of Mt. Washington. Can't wait to see the Garmin readout for those loops.

I get bummed too when I don't get a planned run in.
Your right, those little things are cross training too.
