OMG - I get to start doing my week in reviews again. Calf is coming back and every day I feel progress.
Finished out the week with a 12 miler this AM with my friend Kim. Her and I both struggling and did not want to do the run. She has had tummy issues for the past few days. I have had allergies and asthma issues with a bit of a tummy achy. We were both funky chickens this AM. We set out to the run and I can barely manage our 10 minute pace with my breathing and I felt like I had the flu for first 3 miles. In between feverish and clamminess and muscle fatigue and tummy aches will keep plodding away at the miles underneath a sky that turned dark and started rumbling. Mile 5-8 we tried to stay in the woods as the lightening was starting up and frankly it was starting to scare the shit out of me. We pondered heading for the car and cutting it shoirt. I know I declared that I would just do 8 and do the other 4 this evening. Well I magically started to feel way better after taking a gel at mile 7 and so excited to know I would finish out this 12 miler. Kim was not faring as well as her tummy really started messing with her in the final miles. I dropped her off at 10 miles and finished out my 12 when the skies really opened and starting pouring on me. Funny I really loved the feeling :-) Thank you God for Kim for braving this AM and helping me get it done when it was the last thing you or I wanted to be doing. Very grateful to my girl this AM!!!
