I need to catch Up!

I did not post my Saturday run..guess my weekend was too busy!  I really had a great run, for little 'ole me, and finally felt like everything was falling into place. The weather was cool and crisp, I ran 4.2 mile with a 11:38 pace. I felt so good with the results and best thing of all..No Hamstring Problems! WooHoo!!!!

Now, fast forward to today. I will start with a positive note: Every run is good, some are just better than others!

I did not run yesterday because of the strong winds that the Denver area is experiencing. I was not worried about skipping Monday because, for some reason that I can not remember, I had requested  Tuesday off work.
I woke up this morning and looked out the window..Grrrrrrrr  the wind is still blowing!  No problem, I would wait until noon and surely it would subside by then.

Noon came and it was still blowing like a sun of a gun!  Too bad, so sad, I had to get out on the trail. Oh my goodness, have you ever heard of a brain freeze while running?  Well, that is what I got today. By the time I finished the run it felt like a brain freeze after eating ice cream too fast. I was only able to complete 2 miles and I had a 11:30 pace.  I think my brain hurt so bad that I ran faster at the end. I posted on daily mile and this was my thought immediately after the run.

Dear Mother Nature,
 You gave me crosswinds and headwinds...Where oh where did my tailwinds go??!!

Thanks for any answer you can give me,

The woman with the BRAIN FREEZE


  1. Hi Shawn, Thanks for visiting me! I am so interested in your blog b/c I started running with my dog to keep her happy. She's a border collie with lots of energy to spare. I really started to love the runs until my left foot started bothering me. I kept running and now I can barely walk on it. I hope it isn't permanent b/c running is so great! It's helped me in many ways. In the meantime, I will be following you with great interest! Great job!

  2. Hi Thanx for coming by to see me Shawn. I try to keep moving and not get too stuck on my couch but running never has called to me. But I'm sure we will find other things in common! I'll be back!
