I voted and had a crappy run.

Well – voting is done. Make sure you get out and vote. I don’t care who you vote for, but the privilege of voting is something to never, ever take for granted.

Lucky for me, my voting place is the high school down the street where I do my runs. So, I dressed in my workout clothes and voted. I know this is a small town, but there was only 1 (yes, one) voting booth. Luckily there were only about 5 people in front of me, and we only had about 6 things to vote on. So, it only took about 15 minutes or so.

After voting, I went out back to the track and started jogging. It did not feel good right off the bat. My calves were tight and I just felt tired. I could not get a pace faster than an 11 minute mile and I really had to slog and bargain with myself to finish 3 miles. I was actually looking forward to the run earlier, but I guess my body had other ideas. I don’t know as it might be a delayed response from donating blood on Saturday, could be low iron levels. But, it’s done and now I can do a rare night of vegeing in front of the tube!

    Wow, that is a small town! I live in a little town too, but I think there were 5 or 6 voting booths and I didn’t have to wait in line, which I had actually prepared for–brought a book to read.

    So, a night of vegeing, but the only thing on tv was the election. Which actually was much more interesting than in recent years. 2 great speeches–and I am not a fan of political speeches.

    late to the party for the reading but judging by the post above looks like your ‘crappy’ run was just a fluke!

    One of the reasons that I only donated blood once last year is because it left me drained for running for 3 days..

    GOOD for you! When I could still run, I, too, often had to “bargain” with myself to get it done, even though the bod had a mind of its own. In the beginning, I got a trainer with experience in track to help me learn the running game. I’ll never forget something he said: “You’ll have good days and bad days and no matter how you feel, you have to run.” On “bad” days, I hated him! You did great! Inspiring…
