I am utterly exhausted. My legs are always sore and tired and screaming for a massage. My quads and ITBs ask for their stretches almost three times a day now—how demanding! And, since I train in the mornings, I am in dire need of more sleep. (I stay up with the kids up to 12 midnight and wake up before the sun rises on training days.)
But, I am not complaining. In fact, I’m loving it!
It’s summertime and I am taking full advantage of the free time to train. It’s almost like an eat-all-you-can buffet that lasts for a couple of months…but, in this case, you run-all-you-want so you won’t feel like a blob after the gluttonous indulgence.
Despite the slightly weary feeling, I’m looking forward to Runnex on Sunday. It’s the first time I’m joining a race in U.P. I always wanted to run there, but I was never willing to drive out that far in the wee hours of the morning. Now that hubby is driving and running the 5k with me (aaah, he’s definitely hooked!) I’m game and all giddy with excitement.
Hope to see you there!
