Its been 4 days (4 days 9 hours 15 minutes 45 secs) since I had a fix. But really, it’s not like I’m counting or anything. However, I am starting to show the signs of withdrawal and it’s not very attractive, to say the least.
The online shopping, hanging out at Wal-Mart for no apparent reason, playing with widgets, looking for old friends on FB, asking the boy if he wants me to stay around for band rehersal….its gettin’ ugly around here !!
The golden rule is 1 day of rest for every mile covered during the race. This means 13 REST/RECOVERY days for me. That doesn’t mean no activity, just don’t run/bike/swim till you feel like you’re gonna puke (ie no speed/interval work) or no going longer than say 45 minutes….oh, and one is technically suppose to skip every other day all together, but….whatever, moving on…
I was fairly compliant until Tuesday and my legs decided to forgive me. I ran a quick 4 Wednesday, then today I rode an easy 25 and still feel relatively good.
It’s just I want more. I can feel it, taste it and I want it. But it’s still out of reach…for 9 more days. If only the Resses Peanut Butter Cups were out of reach!
As for AquaDoc and BoyGenius, no luck…they don’t stand a fightin’ chance. You know what they say, if mamma ain’t happy……yup, we all know how this one ends….
