Whine Fest




Sheesh.  Has it been that long since my last post?  Wow. 

I've been struggling with feeling lousy the last couple of weeks.  Back and forth from being laid out on the couch and running/swimming/spinning and feeling great.  I can't figure it out.  I'm eating plenty.  Sleeping as much as I can - which is probably not enough but, I'm trying. And still . . .

In the meantime, I've gotten a 14 miler in - 14 miles is a long way to run any way you look at it.  Its far.  But I gotter done.  Last week was a recovery week which finished off with an "easy" ten mile run.  The kicker is that it did feel easy.  Kinda.  As easy as ten miles can feel to a mere mortal like me.  It went fast and fun as well as I was lucky enough to meet up with a dude training for an ultra and going about my pace - he slowed down for me and I sped up for him.  It was fun to talk with someone who knew so much and was so passionate about running. 

Yesterday, I did a tempo run at a little over six miles.  This morning I swam.  Tonight I feel like I got hit by a truck.  So, I'm going to bed.

Just thought I'd check in - in case anyone's still out there.  Coming Soon: The Final Push and a Plea for Money.

Peace out.

Ah, how I long for the days when 10 miles was an easy run!

Must be something in the air. I've had lots of ups and downs the last few weeks, maybe a month, with bad headaches. All testing rules out anything serious, so now am thinking it is environmental. Just what I don't know. Anyway, I know how you feel! Hope the pending spring and upcoming warmer weather get here soon and help you feel better!
