How many miles did you run today? - Page 743
Feels pretty miserable :/
22 miles is still a good effort! It is warming up around here so the trails are packed these days. I did hear a rumor someone is trying to put a 50 mile race together close to Nashville on some private land and I hope they open it up to runners in general as public parks get cramped quickly.
My best guess is previous nights dinner was the cause (chipotle, my normal pre-race dinner). I woke up feeling queazy but figured it was just pre-race anxiety. My stomach never quite settled and by mile 15 or 16 I was struggling to keep things down. Figured I'd get back to the start / aid station (figure 8 course), rest up, then head out but it took too long for things to feel right and I missed the cut-off.
In retrospect, I wish I had dropped down to the 50k and continued... but that decision had to be made at mile 19 and, for whatever reason, I decided against it. Live and learn.
A DNF is tough to swallow but another race is right around the corner so I'll have a chance to redeem myself :)
I had a sad realization this morning when I got to the gym and the person who had to open the gym overslept. 48* outside and I was going to the gym to run when previously I was outside all the way down to 0*. Time to start getting back outside and mixing it up and only use the gym for weights.
0 miles this morning and 2 cookies.
