Dog Crap

Dog crap. It sucks to step in. It sucks even worse when your run feels like it. Such was the case today.

Ran a warm-up and it didn't feel all that great. Began some interval work and the feeling stayed. Legs just felt dead, so I cut it short.

Gotta say, I'm really frustrated right now. Ever since I got the flu last month, I just haven't felt the same. Expectations are now pretty low for Boston. But it is what it is. Let's just run the dang thing and try to have fun, then follow it up with a spring/summer of minimal racing, but lot's of running and fly fishing... combined. I think my heart is already at running out to very remote streams and ponds and catching trout.

w/u: Ran 1.7 miles @ 7:46/mile pace.
Intervals: Ran .9 miles @ 6:46/mile pace.
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly for w/u, flat for intervals.
Upper 40s, partly cloudy.
Saucony Virrata, shorts, short sleeved shirt, long sleeved shirt.

Bummer, Jamie. It is amazing what something like a big illness will do - it just wipes you out entirely and can take a while to come back from. I hope you can just enjoy the next days before Boston, and then enjoy the experience there. And hopefully surprise yourself and feel really great on race day! Keep your spirits up! You'll be back.

Ditto Sparkplug. You'll feel a little better if you cut yourself some slack, too...
