I was scheduled for a short 4 miler today at race pace. It sucked. I just had no energy, and it wasn't even hot out. I finished the run and came home confused and discouraged. Then I realized, of course it sucked. I skipped dinner last night and just had an apple and a glass of wine around 7 pm. And I didn't eat anything this morning before the run, just had a glass of juice. So I'm pretty much expecting my body to run on an empty tank. If I'm going to be serious about running, I have to be serious about the whole package, which includes nutrition.
I skipped dinner because I had a huge excellent lunch with my mom. We had fish tacos; grilled and with just a hint of lemon. Really tasty!
I'm either going for another run tonight when it cools down or I'll do the elliptical. I don't feel like I got much of a workout today..
