I'm not fully out of the woods as I have residual swelling that is annoying. Most runners wouldn't notice it but I do. It's getting better daily. RICE all day, every day post run. It doesn't effect my run other than scare me that I could make it worse. If I have good music I usually forget about it.
So, last week I ran 95 miles. It was a very hard week of really hard wind, big hills, ice storms, hard rain/sleet etc.
|Yes, I just doubled in freezing rain but it's also the same stuff I wear everyday. Help, fashion police!|
|This looks almost peaceful. WRONG, it was hell!|
So by the time my long run came around I was a zombie. I had about 90 minutes of marathon pace scheduled inside of a 19 miler. I did an hour at 6:40 pace and then dropped to 7:15's for the remainder. I had nothing left. Oddly enough, it didn't really bother me too much after.
I have to give BROOKS some props. I emailed them about my injury resulting from the Pure Flow 3's. I asked for my money back or a pair of Launch's. Within 24 hours they responded and asked what color Launch I would like. I had them the next day. Very nice. Thank you Brooks. I'll quit MF'ing you to all of cyberspace. : )
So back to the grind. 6 weeks left! That's about all I really want to do. I'm getting tired of being tired. I'm tired of eating so much. I'm tired of all the Run Forest jokes. Just roll me down Hopkinton at 2:55 pace please! But guaranteed I'll be pissed that I'm too sore to run on April 22, 2014. ARG!
Coming up soon I have to decide on my outfit for Boston!! I have a few ideas. (okay, I've been collecting stuff for 5 months, lol) I'll do a virtual fashion show! It's the best part of training!! Finally!!
I hope you guys are doing well!
