The down sides for someone like me? I fall some times. I fell today, first fall since last Sunday when I had my first run in Tallahassee. Really a sneaky little root. I got up to find it and I must have been dragging my feet like Frankenstein to catch that root, it was practically buried underground.
I ran at about 4:30 this afternoon. Though the blog is 6/11/12 at 1:30 a.m., it is still 6:30 p.m. on 6/10/12 in Tallahassee. It was hot and humid. Lost a lot of water weight today. At about 31 minutes I stopped for water and GU because I really didn't feel good at all. That was helpful. I also stopped for water at 61 minutes. I fell at 43 minutes.
The last few days have had nice nature looks with a little bit of fear with it. Today was the freaky deeky dance. Tooling along in a nice shaded patch, really soft ground, nice and then something wiggles in front of me. SNAKE!!!!! Not a serious snake, a black snake, harmless, about two feet long. I danced all around it not to step on it or have it go nuts on me. It wiggled away, I wiggled away.
I managed to stumble home for the day, very tired. Probably tired also from 8 days in a row, this is the best training I've had in months. No self, try to remember that.
