I've run nearly 12,000 miles in the last seven years and along the way have learned a little about running, training, nutrition and race day strategy. From marathons to ultras, I continue to do them all. Come along and join me as I chronicle my tales of the road less traveled, and traveled completely after daylight...

Feelin' Homer's pain
Today was a nice leisurely 5-6 miler, at least on paper.
I just didn't have much kick in my legs this morning. I felt fine physically, but the legs were just a bit fatigued, and I'm not sure why. I haven't put too many miles on them in the past few days (about 20, I think), so I am leaning more to my nutrition loading in the last 24 hours or so. I don't think I've been fueling very well, or at least not very efficiently.
Planning on a 9 miler Friday morning to get me ready for a solid 13 miler on Saturday morning when I take our oldest son to Cross Country practice at a nearby park.
