You get what you deserve

Distance: 6.66 (how ironic…)
Miles to go: 1736.5

Haven’t posted much lately because I am desperately trying to finish my kitchen remodel. I know it’s not the same as running, but you try laying hardwood flooring for 14 hours a day and see if YOU feel like running…!
My floors are done and I have most of my cabinets made and installed, so I should be able to get back to a relatively normal routine soon. I only ran once last week due to remodeling and some travel for work, so I’m not sure why I’m surprised by my poor result.

If I could split this run in half I would say it was a great run (part one) and a miserable run (part two). I started off feeling fantastic. No pain, easy pace, barely breathing hard. We were running in a light rain (seems we ALWAYS run in the rain, lately…) and other than feeling muggy, it was nice. We came up off the trail and onto the road and I started to feel winded. Then stomach cramps. Then dizzy. It was lovely. The run finishes on a huge downhill and I usually blast down it in celebration of gravity, but not today. I limped home, clumsy and stumbling.
Afterwards I hurt all over. It seemed like every old injury I had flared up at the same time, and brought friends I didn’t know about to the party… And I was physically spent all day. I had no energy, couldn’t concentrate and felt weak. I’m not sure that I might just be fighting a cold or something, but whatever it is, it has 12 hours to go away. I’m riding to work tomorrow…
