This was a step-down week for me, which meant running under 40 miles, with a long run of only 13 miles. All of that should have made it a nice, easy week, but I'm still dang tired. Saturday was the Fleet Feet Sunrise 10k - a hilly, humid course. It felt GREAT to be racing again and, even though I was taking it easy, it was so fun to just run and race. Here are the pics of me, apparently goose-stepping, across the finish line.
Sunday morning was an early 13 - and it hurt. I was tired, beat, dehydrated, and just did not want to run. I fought heartburn for the first 9-11 miles and finally barfed on Eldon Rd. The guy on the road behind me stopped to make sure I was okay - but that was actually the best I had felt all run.
I'm really going to concentrate on getting some sleep and proper nutrition this week, so that next weekend's 20 miler does not feel so horrible.
