Recent Review

My body is not responding this year like it has in past years. This year, my feet hurt.
The rest of my body is fine, now, but Sunday, I think I had the stomach flu. Had a headache most of the day. Went for a long run and it took three miles to get rid of the headache. Then around mile 10 my stomach got queezy and started cramping. I wasn't really nauseous, but it was the kind of feeling where I was afraid I'd suddenly, spontaneously hurl. But I didn't.
The whole run, I was very tired and lethargic. I told myself, "Look at it as an ultra - you're tired - okay - you don't have to go fast, just keep going."
I managed 20.5 miles and felt decent afterwards. Still, it wasn't until Tuesday that I was back to my energetic self.

Last Saturday, I volunteered at Colorado Runner Mag's Snowman Stampede 10-miler. It's a nice change of pace to stand there watching the pain on other people's faces instead of enduring it myself. Then afterwards I got the usual freebies.

Thanks for the welcome back. It is hard coming back from an injury - frustrating. Hope your training goes well. If ever you want company on a long one get in touch.
