Another personal record for monthly mileage. I should be excited, but I am still tired. I woke up at 5:30 this morning, after not getting to bed until about 12:30. Cliff said that he was going to come over at 6:00 to run with me. When I hadn't heard from him by 6:00, I gave him a call and got no answer. Hmm...he probably slept in. He called back a few minutes later and confirmed that. I wasn't really upset. I was up and ready to run anyways, so out I went. I was scheduled for 20k, and I decided to take it really easy. The first 10k felt great...the weather was cool, it was sunny, and there were very few cars on the road. Then, the lost sleep caught up with me and I started feeling really tired and hungry. I ate 2 gel shots, but they didn't tide me over. I gave up after 18k, which took me 2:23...so slow! But the good thing was that my average HR was 146. That's good...I don't think I've ever done an LSD with my HR that low.
I slept for most of the day after that. The training has really taken its toll. With 2 weeks left before the big race, my mileage will be cut back substantially. I hope that I don't suffer too much from taper madness :)
