only 25 to go

I am deep into my 55 week. Today was 12. I went to bed fairly early, not as early as usual since I've become addicted to the friggin olympics. 
The alarm went off at 7. 
No no no.
I had a really had time gettin up. I finally dragged myself out bed and out for my run. I felt crappy. At mile 5, I almost threw in the towel. I think I started dehydrated so I just let myself stop at just about every water fountain. After much mumbling and grumbling, I managed to turn it around and have a better 2nd half run. I took my shirt off which helped and tried to stay in the shade. It wasn't even all that hot I was just trying to trick myself into feeling better.
Perhaps I'm not totally recovered from Wed.'s run. That's fine. That was a really good run for me and today was all about gettin the miles in.
So I have 25 miles left in my 55 miles week. Tomorrow is a 5 mile recovery run which I'm going to do on the closed to traffic Park ave. Sun. is a 20 which I'm going to do up over the GWB onto River road. I'm actually kinda looking forward to that. I can not imagine why.

Way to stick it out. I'm definitely feeling that way more lately.

Sorry to hear you're feeling crappy today. Considering how much Auntie Flo (despicable term) takes out of you, do you take extra iron the week of? Might give you some energy back.

Glad to hear you're looking forward to the 20, I feel so bad for people who dread their long runs, seeing as how that's what the marathon is about. :-)

yea, this has just been a tough week all around.
I'm not worried about it which is a good thing.
