Gosh, getting sick has really taken me back in fitness. Not that I was all that fit to begin with, given the off season, but I am really struggling with everything now. Finally got back in the pool last week, and after 200 meters, my arms were dead tired. Sad. Running is sslloowww, and I mean slow. I swear I am barely shuffling along now. I had a 10k race last weekend, and I ran my version of hard for 5 miles, then fell apart....my time was 1:06....not a stellar time at all. Sure it was at Pocahontas but really? I cannot seem to get my lungs or legs to work. I am pretty discouraged.
On Sunday, I ran a little over 10.5 miles, took me forever, and I felt tired the whole time. I am running the Shamrock 1/2 and then the C'ville full, and pretty much feel like both are going to be awful slogs. Certainly not any PR,unless one can PR in the worst way. Ha! Oh well, I guess I'll just have to suck it up and do the best I can, even if my best keeps getting worse. Whine. Whine. I just wish I could improve in something. Maybe I will, it is after all, only March!
