I teach business processes and systems classes and I constantly tell my students that it does not matter how elegant the system, if what is input is garbage, the output will be garbage. Garbage In Garbage Out.
Tuesday night we partook in some revelry that included green beers and green shots, lots of karaoke, and then TACO BELL. Yikes. For those of you Weight Watchers familiar, that was every. single. weekly. point. Then yesterday I went for a run and it sucked. bad. I am on Week 6 Day 2 of Couch to 5K, which is run 1 mile, walk 1/4 mile, then run another mile. I got to the halfway point of the second mile and that was it. I was toast. I felt horribly dehydrated, nauseous, awful. I deserved it. GIGO, right?
I spent the rest of yesterday on a healthy mission, ate healthy food, drank lots of water, got good rest, and this morning got back out to the park to run. I was already working on this post in my head...after treating my body so well (for one day) I was going to be a jogging machine.
It is really pretty dumb that I thought that since I wasn't a jogging machine BEFORE. I did get through the workout, but it was s---l---0---w goings. I guess I am not quite as ready to switch to half marathon training as I thought. Stupid Biggest Loser.
