Finally Getting Fit

The Daily Dirty

Posted on: April 24, 2011

For Saturday:

I ran a 5K in the morning mist and cloud. That was fun but tiring. I do not run far enough when I go out. I have got to start going 3.5-4, even 4.5-5 when I go out. Which means I have to start going out in the mornings… in the dark. There’s no way around it anymore. I’ve got to do it if I’m going to progress and get faster and go farther.

The race was small and it took me 42:55 to finish.  I’m 5th in my age group race points right now. I wish I wasn’t going to miss next weeks race but it can’t be helped.

After the race my friend and I went to the Strawberry Festival. The giant sausage dog I had didn’t help calorie wise but it sure did taste good. I put off the post-race headache with 3 32 oz bottles of powerade zero and 1 32 oz diet coke. Just enough caffeine to prevent the pain of caffeine withdrawal. I did sleep most of the afternoon away though.

My shin and back hurt like I big mofo all during the race and after. I stopped in the little country drug store and bought an ace wrap for my shin. I stuck a SalonPas patch and wrapped it up and kept going. When I got home I took a couple of pain reliever PM and slept slept slept.

That was NICE!

I hope you had a great Easter weekend with family and friends and some fun activity. I can’t wait to read all about it.
