Has this ever happened to you?
Training is humming along. You've been working hard – logging numbers you never imagined both in terms of speed and distance. You're feeling pretty awesome and invincible – except for that niggling twinge in your lower leg. And the hot spot on the outside edge of your foot. And the uncomfortable tightness running the entire length of your thigh. And well, you're just fucking tired all. the. time.
It's probably just that point in the training cycle, right?
It'll pass, you tell yourself. Just eat some more chia and keep pounding the Chobani. Just gotta make it to race day.
If so, you can certainly relate to poor Betty.
In case you missed the first installment, go here.
What and when are you racing next?
–nevaahhhhhhhhh! my leg died and went to heaven. i am attempting a resurrection. i'll let you know how it goes. so far, so good – but still can't run yet.
Are you hurting at all?
–not as much as when I was running and not all the time anymore. but yes, it still hurts.
How's training going?
–bahahahahahahah! but i've been making some wicked awesome casseroles lately ;-)
Have you ever eaten marshmallows for breakfast (not like in Lucky Charms...the big fat ones)?
–i will try this tomorrow. i found them in the cupboard about an hour ago. they're a few years old but so chock full o' preservative goodness that they never go bad, right? i'll sprinkle some chia and flaxmeal on them to counterbalance any negative breakfast chakra they might contain. or maybe i'll put some in my oatmeal.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND – OR I'LL PUT YOU IN A COMIC!
