First of all ... thank you to all of you who still read my blog. I have been crazy busy this summer and have not left many comments. I've been reading from time-to-time ... but I've been pretty non comment-ish lately! I'll try to do better.
I think I got really dehydrated yesterday. I've been working in double runs lately ... one in the morning and one in the evening. And I'm REALLY having trouble getting & keeping enough fluids in me. This morning when I woke up, I could hardly keep my eyes open, which is not normal. I skipped my ab work (mostly because I was running late), got dressed, and started my run - I had 12 scheduled.
I made it through the first mile - mostly with my eyes closed. During the second mile, my legs began to feel like I was running in honey, and I was sweating more than usual. We DID have about 93% humidity this morning, and I know that had something to do with it, but it really felt below average. I was getting a little shaky and light-headed, and at the end of mile 2, I hit the wall ... like I've experienced only about 3 or 4 times before. I walked all the way home and couldn't get enough food and fluids in me once I was there.
After that, I was tired all day and my energy level was really low. I also only pee'd about 3 times, which is really low for me. I tried to get a lot more fluids today and I'll try it again tomorrow. Ankeny, Iowa is super flat so it should be an easy run!
As for the title of this blog, I ALWAYS appreciate all of the encouraging and supportive comments that everyone leaves. But today, while scanning the ol' www, I noticed that many of you had turned on me while reading my wife, Michael's blog, Slowly Tri-ing (or something like that). It seems as though many of you have mysteriously taken her side in her ridiculous account of what happened between us a few mornings ago.
I REALLY hate to throw her under the bus or air dirty family laundry, but y'all should know that Michael gets "a little crazy" with her stories sometimes. For example, she will look you in the eye and tell you that she invented Fruit Loops. Or that she once lived on the moon for a summer after college. And that she won the Indy 500 in 1992, and that pirates stop by her office every Tuesday. I mean, just stupid stuff that can't be backed up factually. I love the girl like nobody's business, but are you really gonna put much faith in someone who SWEARS she was a member of 'N Sync??? C'mon man ... think about it!
I love you babe, but you KNOW that you NEVER killed a mountain lion with your bare hands ... it's just not true. Time to come clean ... AND YOU CAN START BY CORRECTING YOUR "VERSION" OF OUR CONVERSATION THE OTHER MORNING! Seacrest out!
... be great today!
