Well the bad news is I haven't been feeling well. On the bright side though, I think that may have been what caused me to fall apart during the last two miles of my long run on Saturday.
Sunday late afternoon I started to feel lousy and realized that the aches I had been attributing to Saturday's long run were more than just long run aches. My stomach started to feel icky and I just felt lousy all over, and the stomach issues began. I won't go into details but it hasn't been great.
I never got a recovery run in on Sunday and ended up resting Monday too. Tuesday I thought I felt better but I could barely get through 3 miles. I just felt so run down. Today was a little better but I still felt like I could barely get through my run. It's frustrating to me because I really wanted to add in some more miles during the week this week. I am really hoping that by taking it easy I can shake this thing quickly. A bunch of my running friends are running 18 on Sunday and I really want to do it with them.
Tonight I registered for the Utica Boilermaker, a 15K race, which is about an hour from here. It's in July and it's such a fun race. It's like one giant party that ends at a brewery. Everyone gets a beer plus they have live music and a party at the end. Registering for that cheered me up a bit. I am hoping I get my mojo back tomorrow!
