Clicking on my link, you never know what you're going to get.
No, not like a box of chocolates (we're avoiding those these days Forest).
But more like ...
One day I'm happy and doing handstands.
One day I'm feeling light and content.
And the next
I feel like shit and everything sucks.
Sometimes Running Sucks.
I had to stop to walk. Twice. WTF? I haven't WALKED since the old days of hip injuries.
AND I was so winded.
AND I got chicked by a not-so-fit chick.
AND there was wind. Lots of wind.
AND a creepy marine layer that felt like rain.
AND the fresh ocean breeze was not so fresh - smelled more like a used up stripper pole.
AND -ok, I'm out of "AND's"
And when running sucks; just about everything sucks.

that last line I entirely relate to.
for me it's LIFTING but when Im weak everything else is weak too.
:). I love the how "human" your blog is.
I'd like to know how the hell you know what a used stripper pole smells like? :P
Tomorrow will be better :-)
Days like this happen, somedays you are just off. On the positve side, you finished the run and stuck with it.
ROFLMAO! You freekin crack me up!
Either NYC or the Hudson Mohawk. Everything depends on the NYC lottery *sigh* Next marathon, lemme know whatcha doing, k? ;-)
Even though I'm still at the "walking" phase of my running plan (Yes, I have a plan!) I hear you. Some days are like trudging through syrup. Moldy syrup. Tomorrow will be better!
I was wondering like Marcy how you know what a used stripper pole smells like...then I read your comment on her site...funny.
BTW - Your bipolarness, and your openess about it, is what makes you so charming.
Ditto Marcy and Shelley on wondering how you know what a stripper pole sounds like.
There have been several days when I could have written your blog sans the stripper pole comment. Tomorrow you will probably have the run of your life.
That's all why we love your blog! Seriously, I enjoy reading it cause like someone mentioned before, you're human.
Aw, sometimes for some reason it just doesn't seem to work, does it? And I can totally relate with you and MizFit about that last line.
I can so relate to the bipolar thing. My mood goes down from PMS, ovulation, a low pressure system going through, constant rain, lack of sleep, a messy house, and lack of running. So, basically, I have about 5 good days a month. Haha. It's not quite that bad, but I definitely live a roller coaster life. It's nice to be able to vent about it here in the blogosphere.
Ok...I'm in with the others as well...I'd like to see a post on your blog that explains how you know what a used up stripper pole smells like. :)
"smelled more like a used up stripper pole."
OMG. I still haven't recovered from reading that!
I hate that you're feeling bipolar these days! Hopefully, it's not something a large martini and a new pair of sassy heels can't fix...
And you know what, sometimes running does suck! In my case, it sucks all of the time!
Someone used to tell me... "It only sucks until you figure out how much you're willing to swallow."
Of course, now, I'm giggling like a school girl... but I can see how it *could* be a good mantra if I could only get my head out of the gutter long enough to absorb the meaning of it all.
Mama said there would be days like that. Is this where I break out into my Annie rendition? The sun will come up……..
It gets better, Chica.
Give it time to smoothe out. You've been through some shiz. You are doing all the right things, it just takes some time. Hang in there. HUGS.
Hello!! I totally understand!! Just had a crap run myself!
Hi there! I love reading your blog, it's funny and inspirational! I'm not a runner but I want to be now! =)
Feel better! I loved the used stripper pole comment :)
at least you are out there running!! thats the most important thing right :) hope you feel better soon, i hate those days!
Amen! I just got back from a crappy run too - I really think it is the season. I blame everything else on weather - it may as well be responsible for my runs too.
Those shitty runs only mean a really good run is coming soon! :)
Sorry you're having a bad day but I must say the used stripper pole comment was priceless.
Hehe I remember you once telling me that the bad ones are part of the deal! It doesss get better! Seriously! Sit back, and take the good with the bad.
All it takes is one good run for everything to be perfect again:)
I'm the same way like a roller freaking coaster I think....yet its the times when I let myself down and really tick myself off, and then know that I have to blog about it; that gets me more motivated to make up for it; so in the end, that's all good....You're all good girl. Keep it up!
well at least you've retained your way with words...
"smelled like a used up stripper pole"
I feel queasy!
"When running sucks, everything sucks"
I wish it weren't true but...it is.
Everybody else already said it: yeah, some days suck. But they pass.
I hear ya barking, big dog. So true.
Awww, I am with you girl. Thanks for the tunes!!
