Rachael Fights Back

Today I was supposed to run 19 miles. I literally kept running into flooded trails and mentally couldn’t break through the stupid wall. I woke up super sore and barely made it 6 slow miles before I stopped. 

I feel like I gave up, but I know that I need to listen to my body. This week has kicked my ass and I need a break. To be perfectly honest, running hasn’t been fun since I moved to Colorado and has felt more like a chore. I know it’s because I’m stressed and it’s a big change, but it still stinks. I think it’s time to rest my body and have a few dates with my foam roller… And to think I ate all of those carbs to “run” 6 miles. Blah. 

Congrats to all my peeps running races today!!!!
