This is going to be a quick catch-up post, because it’s been soooooo long since I blogged. I have several things I want to write about (thoughts on Ironman Arizona, training, goals), so I’m knocking this out.
That Weird Case of Fatigue
Turns out my extreme tiredness was a case of mono. Never had it before in my life but I’m glad for the diagnosis, because it explains so much. I haven’t run a step since New York City Marathon–this is officially the longest time I have gone without working out of any sort, especially running, in over 10 years.
I knew I was sick when I had (what is this past tense? HAVE) no desire to run or move in general.
Right now, I’m just taking the best care of myself that I can. The last thing in the world I want to do is push myself back into things too soon and have to take more time.
So everything I’d thought I was doing (White Rock Marathon, BunMart Intergalactic Challenge, and some distance out at Bandera, to name but a few events) is poof! Gone.
Instead, I am focusing on the positive side and using this time to work on my regular, everyday nutrition and plan to focus on my core and form. And all with my best training buddy, Cathy.
This will be a great opportunity.
