This run was tough from the first step. I don't know if I wished this on myself or simply have enough experience to have known it was coming. Any way it was a challenge the whole way.
I went into work for a few hours this morning then turned my sights for home. I knew the route straight home would only get me 9 miles so I stayed on the south side of the river along the Riverwalk then went down to the Shedd Aquarium. Notre Dame is playing Miami at Soldier Field today so there was a bunch of extracuricular acitivities going on. The marathon finish was also getting set up for tomorrow so there was a bunch of activity in the park for that.
I didn't stop for water anywhere along the way. I did stop at the boat to use the restroom. I don't know what my problem was. I simply had no energy. My legs were a little sore but nothing too bad. I'll gladly take tomorrow's rest day then get back at it next week.
Days like this have to happen to remind there's a lot of work to be done yet!
Had passing thoughts about missing today's St. George marathon for the first time in 5 years. It's disappointing but at the same time seems like it was meant to be.
