3 Things Thursday: #abeautifulmess

I downloaded a new photo app the other day: A Beautiful Mess - and I'm becoming obsessed with it, so I thought I'd put a few of my Bayshore Half thoughts in pictures since I'm afraid this race may be turning into exactly that, a beautiful mess.

This is the last 3 nights. Orange is awake, green is light sleep, blue is deep sleep. Clearly I have issues. The "awake" around 4 or 5 each morning? That would be thanks to my cat. Ugh.
(I forgot to add - this app is called Sleep Time and the images are stitched together with Diptic)

Race day is going to be HOT.  I'm not ready to run in hot weather.

I thought I was ready to run last night. Obviously I haven't recovered yet from the 25k last Saturday since I couldn't even run a mile. 13.1 in just over a week is going to really suck if my legs don't wake back up.
So, there you have it.  My mini freakout over what is/was supposed to be my "A" race this year.  I think adding too many races/training runs may have doomed me for a PR at Bayshore.  To PR, I need to run a 9:55 pace or better.  I honestly don't know if I still have that in me at this point since I couldn't even run 3 miles yesterday at the 10:30 pace I set out at.  I will give myself credit for stopping the run when it didn't feel right though.  That's progress for me.

I still have time and I'm playing it day by day as to what I'll run or cross train.  10 miles are on the schedule for Saturday and I honestly don't know if I'm going to run or not.

Have you tried this new app yet?
