Good morning, TEAM LIT!
I absolutely love the energy of yesterday's daily bread thread and around here in general. Welcome back, peeps! Let's keep it up.
Yo: Way to stay persistent in getting that workout done. That right there is among the reasons why you are where you are (a fast runner getting set for Boston). Not many of us are "naturals"; we work hard to achieve our goals, and from the outside it appears as if you are naturally gifted. But most people do not see that 2 hour search for a track! While you're away on business! Nicely done.
Thx for passing along word. Such a bummer about Barb's brother. She used to make frequent trips to spend time with him, because she knew this day would come. Sad how it all unfolded with her story occurring first.
MoCo: Absolutely great thought yesterday. Thanks for sharing it. You know my running streak? The reason I do it is exactly the thought you conveyed, that each day is special, and it's my way of celebrating that fact.
MQ: I see the doctor again the week after Boston, and I'm sure we will talk about the next phase in treatment, and at this point I am thinking of encouraging that course of action, as I know that I hold the keys to unlocking that next phase. I was really hoping the kick start was all I needed, but the last few weeks have seen my mornings being affected. Thankfully at this point it is just fatigue and low power, but I'm not liking the tread. This morning I averaged 10:40 min miles over 3.5 miles. I had no power. The next phase, if it were to get worse, is back to walking. Thankfully I do have power as the morning wears, but still, these last two weeks have shone a light on the fact that I still need help. Which sucks. And you bet I'll work with the doctor to push that, assuming he agrees.
Geo: Good luck on Sunday!
Zoj: Figured Mt. Snow... congrats! And sorry about the lingering fatigue. I know how shitty a feeling that is especially when it doesn't shake.
3.5 absolutely powerless miles. Lack of ability to power from the Illness en force this morning. Final confirmation I needed to push doctor at next visit for the next phase of my treatment. Was hoping to avoid it, but when I wake up feeling hungover every morning, and when I can barely run 10:40 pace for 3.5 miles, I know I'm sliding back. Thankfully, I still rebound in energy and power as the morning wears on. But I realize that is to be taken away next.
Great day, friends!
