Yeah…that. I committed a rookie mistake today and it cost me. It’s one of many funny runner problems I have experienced. My original plan is to get up and run before church at 10:30 but when the kids were still sleeping at 7:30, I just couldn’t help myself. I took full advantage as we all slept till 8:30 which was glorious. But also meant there was no time for a morning run.
Every Sunday we have a tradition of picking up Chinese food and I really didn’t want to disrupt the groove we were in. So I went along and ate my usual. I thought I had waited long enough but once I started running, I knew I was in trouble. None of the 6 miles were pleasant. I spent most of the run burping or digesting or something painful.
|UGH! Chinese does not make good run fuel|
So it got me thinking..what other running lessons have you learned the hard way? I asked some of my Instagram Friends and we got some pretty good responses.
