mile 2


I took an impromptu rest day yesterday, didn’t foam roll or do anything mildly rehabilitative, and I think I paid for it in the end during today’s run.

I did 4 miles tonight on campus, and I had to stop virtually every mile to stretch my calves. My left foot went completely numb during the middle 2 miles, and so I had to stop and bring back feeling to the foot. Normally, I would try to run through it, but for some reason today, it really affected my breathing. I couldn’t get deep enough breaths in, it felt like my breaths were very shallow. Don’t know what that was about, but I hope it isn’t going to happen again.

I think I was a bit all over the place in terms of pace, listening to music can be problematic in that sense, especially for someone like me, who starts to speed up too much when the song gets to good parts.

If you miss me, contact me, call me, text me, message me, find someway to send something to me. Don’t tell me you miss me and disappear for days. I miss you too. But I’m getting tired of being the only one starting talks.
