Okay, it seems that as soon as I committed to running the Lehigh Valley Marathon on September 8th, my life has… well fallen apart.
Maybe it is just me, but I was very sick the past two days. I had the worse sinus infection I’ve had in years. In fact, I don’t think I have missed a day of work since I have lost weight and stated running because of being sick. Now… 2 days.
I just had a great run on Tuesday and now the week is gone. Today I will run, but since we have a 5K race in the morning, I’ll have to take it easy (and since I haven’t been out of bed in 2 days).
But I am going to try my new magic weapon. Beat root juice. Yes it sounds disgusting, but it is loaded with nitrates and is supposed to increase endurance by up to 15%. Well, I guess I’ll find out tomorrow.
Short post today. Tomorrow I’ll be hangin’ with the dog and then running with TJ, RS and my friend Neill (@BigBigGeed) in the Shake and Bake 5K.
