Uggghhh.... Not good..

I don't know why, but today I am feeling like, well, crap. There. I said it.

This mornings planned 7-9 miler started out fine, no problems detected. At mile 1,73, I absolutely crashed. Totally spent Done. Put a fork in me.

Now, I'm not Dean Karnazes, but 2 miles?? Come on ! I can run 2 miles backwards in quick time! What is going on with me here?

I pray I am not getting sick....


  1. I hope you start feeling better soon. I've had plenty of those runs lately and it's so frustrating, but your body is telling you to take it easy so listen to it!

  2. Yes, you're right. I am typically pretty well determined/pig-headed, and so I don't take setbacks very well. Especially ones that prevent me from hitting my typical 40 miles per week... this one has sat me on my butt for 2 days now though, and I haven't had much desire to try and fight it.

    On the good side, though, I feel much more normal today. I could have run this morning, but I could tell that it wouldn't be a stellar performance, so I just called it a day and let it go. After our boys' baseball game tonight, I will try to get in a nice leisurely 5 miles..

    Thanks for the note, Amanda.
