Amazing how fast you can lose fitness. I mean, I ran practically every day in January until I got caught up with traveling for work and wound up in New York, where it was way too dangerous to even breathe outdoors. Since, my training has been really spotty. I couldn't even sleep last night realizing my next 50k is less than 3 months away and I haven't run more than 10 miles at a go since September. Dreams of DNFs for a 50k... ugly.
Aaron and I went for a short jog after work for him to try out his new Inov-8 shoes and for me to stop being lazy. Somehow I managed to pack up my two pairs of road running shows (even my XeroShoes were packed up). That left me with two trail shoes. I love my trail shoes. On the trail. On the road, I'd do better barefoot. Running on nails.
But it's too cold for barefoot running today, so I opted for trail shoes. My right IT band and knee are still grumbling about it. Got my heating pad on it now. His name is Jack. Purring, but not sure he's happy.
I'm not feeling any symptoms of cutting back on carbs/sugar yet. I also haven't been hungry. Weird. Very weird.
