Good morning, TEAM LIT!
5 mile easy, easy run early this morning. Legs and body tired from quality workouts three days in a row coupled with leg exercises in the gym. Slow, easy run. An otherwise rest day, as there is nothing to gain today.
It's official - I'm DNS this Sunday marathon. Lots of discussion between my brain and heart and brain won the battle. Thx for all the wise words . Life goes on. Next up - Xterra Ft. Custor on May 20. I know Ron is in, not sure about Scott and Mike. You guys are all welcome for the meet up!!
Yoshi - I'm glad you made the best decision for you!! There are more marathons to come...let your body heal. I know you can push through pain, but sounds like this is the best outcome for this race. Sending you hugs...sounds like it was a hard decision.
Nothing for me on Friday except a bunch of yard work. I'll call it cross training.
Sorry to hear about the marathon, but glad you've decided so now you can move on. No regrets, just progress. See you May 20! (Mike P too)
Me, I did 1 hour in the pain cave doing drills. Felt good.
Yoshi - I'm sorry for the heartbreak of DNS, but I'm actually glad to hear your brain won this round. Your body will thank you for it one day.
2.5k on the rower. Too short to count for much, but after a particularly long and tiring week, coercing myself to even do that much felt like an accomplishment.
Z-pack unfortunately isn't on the way. I forgot my doc was out of the office Friday through Monday this week. Dang.
