I didn’t intend to run today, as I like to take a day off after a long run to let my body recover. But tomorrow marks the start of the flag football season so we had our first practice this afternoon. I decided to run to the park, throw the football, grunt a little, and run home. I actually had the football so the run there was awkward since I didn’t know how to hold the football without feeling lopsided.
Football “practice” consisted of me snapping the ball like 9 times and then going home. I don’t actually snap the ball during the games, or play offense for that matter. (Wait the person who snaps plays offense, right?) I am responsible for blitzing the quarterback. I like to act sneaky on the line, run back and forth, and then get the other side in trouble for moving! Anyway, football practice ended and I gave the QB the football so I could run home normally.
On the rest of the run, which was the loop run, I was bombarded with nats. There were nats in both my eyes, flying up my nose, and of course, in my mouth. It was totally disgusting but I figure I got my protein for the day. As I approached my house I passed some guys sitting outside who asked what happened to my football. I told them I gave it to a friend because it was too hard to run. They then pointed out that I was walking (but believe me I WAS running, I just was a block from my house which is where I do my cool down walk!). So anyway, I ran just three miles. It was actually beautiful outside and perfect for running. But I’m still sad I didn’t have a total day of rest! Tomorrow I will probably run around 5 miles, lift legs and then tomorrow night we have our first game!
Oh and also….GO PACK GO!!!!!!!!
