Friday Musings

Man, TGIF! I came back from two weeks in Alaska worn out from playing and exploring hard, jet lag, the redeye flight home Sunday, and finally, a nasty cold that is kicking my butt. Finally, figuring I’d infected the office enough, I took the afternoon off sick today. My sneezes are shaking the foundation of my house!

So, my training has been nil lately. I planned on doing some running this week, but have been too drained with the cold. I did eat like a hog being fattened for slaughter during my trip, and between that and not enough exercise, I have gained about 6-7 pounds since my race in Seattle less than three months ago. Now obviously, that has to be turned around and quickly. And there is only one person who can make that happen. And he has a cold and is feeling miserable right now.

Meanwhile, the agony of da feet continues. I just can’t shake that neuroma, but got another shot of alcohol in there the other day, and it was a clearly a bull’s eye, because my foot felt like a big chunk of it was missing the rest of the day. I get another shot in two more weeks. I’ll keep trying to knock that baby out without surgery, which I’d like to avoid.

I need to set another race up, so I will have something that forces me to train. I could join the spring team for Team in Training, but right now it feels too soon to start fundraising again. I have a month more to think about it. If I don’t do it, I’ll join the fall team for 2011. But if I don't get training soon, that future world record marathon is going to be delayed.
