Food journal 8-27 and a HORRIBLE Run

This afternoon I "ran with Kim." Of course she was running in DC, and I was running in Bama, and the runs were hours apart, but I still considered the run "with her." We decided over the weekend that we needed to do a 5k. I will be completely honest and say that I haven't had a good outdoor run in weeks. AND TODAY WAS HORRIBLE. You know those runs where you aren't really into it, but after you get going you enjoy it? I was hoping for one of those, but it didn't happen. Every single minute of the run was awful...the heat and humidity were unforgiving. Traffic was the worst it has ever been on that route. I couldn't get my breathing right, and mentally I was all over the place. And my legs hurt (I think that is because I have been to Zumba for the past three days, and that can make my calves tired.) But I got the miles in, and hopefully my next run will be better. I am looking forward to the Fall 5k season, so I need to get in a couple of good runs every week.

  1. The good thing about a bad run, is that hopefully the next one will be better!!

  2. In order to make your runs better and better your body should be able to perform its best. I have found a way to keep good shape without overtraining and without exhausting my body. Right nutrition is one of the key factors. Still, sometimes everyday meals can not provide all necessary nutrients. That is why I am taking nutritional supplements. As I am strongly opposed to all kinds of chemicals, I was looking for the natural supplement, consisting basically of vitamins. And I have found the one - Multipurpose High-Potency Super Nutritional Complex by Military Grade. It keeps me toned and prepared for my best runs.
