Monday, Oct. 3 - WORKOUTS!
October! This is crazy. Because we all know October flies.
Yo: Great to see you get wet in the water again! Nice weekend to you.
Zoj: There's little worse than standing around all day in damp, wet conditions. Yuck. Bone chilling. And yes, saw that about IM Maryland. I had a bunch of friend there. One posted video of the run course as he was wading through this one section of water up to his knees.
AdCo: Welcome back!
Reg: Sorry to hear about possible residual effects. I'd go back to the doctor if after a round of Doxy (4 weeks) you still have symptoms. In some cases, the standard round of Doxy isn't enough. This is one known way Chronic Lyme takes over.
Was a GREAT weekend for me, as most of you already saw on FB.
Saturday: Ran 8 miles! I averaged a full minute per mile FASTER than last week. My pace was 9:11! And again, it wasn't until 5 miles in when I started feeling better and upping the pace.
Sunday: Oktoberfest 5K. I was able to run! Finished in 24:38 (7:56 pace). And that includes pushing the tank that is a double job stroller. And stopping for a minute to help a boy who wiped out on his scooter on railroad tracks. First two miles were really rough, and I nearly stopped, but the kids were having so much fun that I kept pushing, and I'm glad I did, because right around 1.5 miles in, I started feeling better in body and was able to push the illness out, just a bit. I still felt sluggish and heavy in legs, but I was, by half way, running on top of my feet again, and it felt amazing! And it was awesome reconnecting with so many of my running peeps. I miss it.
Still cannot run in the early morning, but this may be a sign that the antibiotics are working.
Great day, friends!
