ok, so i have receive a number of complain that my blog was very boring. Well, i just dont know what to write on here so i decided to be honest and just let you know how my life goes in here.
I been a bit tired lately. The training as been challenging, i m now in second gear as my first race of the season approche and i m very scare to get my ass kick! When i get tired, i get grumpy. When i get grumpy, i get quiet, impatient, and very irritable.
Last night, i was heading out for my 6th or 7th run of the day, i dont really remember because this training program thing is silly and i m losing my mind. Erika decided to come along for the 1h progressive run…. this is where the problem begin!!!!!
We had previously done a hard running session early on where i had stump my autority on her so i was expecting her to be tired, quiet and stay behind me on the run ….just like it should be
We started the run and miss Choco could not stop talking…or picking up stick on the ground or pretty rocks and flowers….. I was simply tired, exausthed and trying really hard to focus on putting one feet in front of the other. I just could not understand how someone can be in such good mood and have so much energy when i have nothing left and just trying to survive the session.
I leaded the opening 20min warm up and try to set a decent pace so she would just stay quiet….. but she kept on talking…. This was driving me crazy and i try to lift the pace some more….. but she had some many storys to tell…. how can that be????
After 15 minutes, she told me that from now on, she will stop talking…. THANK YOU!!!!! I was finaly gaining confidence that after all, she was humain and getting a bit tired and will finaly start focusing one holding on to the blistering pace i was setting….. her breathing seems heavy to me so i knew she was finaly getting tired
Well, as we reach the 20minutes, she came to my side to annonce me that she was going to lift the pace as the warm up was over…. WHAT#$%%^*# ….She had more left in her????? She procced to lift the pace more…and more…and more until we could keep pace with the cars on the road, outrun the deer on the golf course and exceed to safe speed of my AVIA LIGHT II shoes as recommended by the manufacture..
That was total provocation of her part to run like this in front of me this late in the day. How can she have so much left in the tank??? i tried to go with her convience she was going to explode at any times….but my elephant legs just didnt wanted too… The miles were going by, 1…..2…..3……4……5…….6 and the pace was getting faster and faster. I was getting grumpier and grumpier…she was pulling further and further from me.
In the last moment of the run, the security guy at the gate of our complexe saw a girl doing her daily run and a crazy dangerous persuer (foamy mouth, grumpy eyes, fist tightly close) 40m back trying desperatly to catch her……….. he proceeded to push me to the ground and hand cuff me…. It was a hopeless situation to try to explain to him that it was just a normal progressive run and that i was trying to catch the girl but would not hurt her…. oh well, my grumpyness level is presently at a record high….
I realize now that i better get use to those situation as i might get chicked a few times this year…. We have so many FAST and STRONG girls on this team, it is meant to happen on a daily bases…
When doc heard about the workout, he simply asked me,…. why didn’t you just let her go?
