I thought it was time to catch up on the blog since my Leadville re-cap. Well not much exciting news to report. I took the whole week off after the race which was nice. I was feeling super good but held off the urge to get out for a run, instead had some great bike rides with Sonya as she did her speed workouts. The 2nd post week after (last week) I took the every other day approach. I know from doing these things there can be a big deep down soreness in you that you do not feel at first. My runs felt great. I got in a easy 5 miler one day with Sonya then a great 9+ miler with Sonya, Evan and Nick then I caped the week off with a great 7+ miler on the Chaska trails with Paul. I was super happy with how things where coming !!
Then came Sunday. Man I woke up at 3am i think feeling like hell. After about 10 trips to the bathroom with diarrhea I finally puked my brains out at like 7:45am. This continued like 4 more times during the day. It was not till about 10pm that I felt like I was turning the corner. Man what a day !!! Good thing Sunday was a day off huh.
Now it is Monday, Labor Day and I am feeling good. I am trying to decide if I should take one more day off or not ? I am leaning towards the day off. Heck what is one more day of rest at this point. Well I hope everyone has a great Labor Day and I hope to see you out on the trails soon !!
P.S. here are a few more pictures from my Leadville 100
