Marathon Journal: 10 miles LOSER
February 15, 2010
I was supposed to do 16 miles but couldn’t do it. That’s hard to say because I rarely don’t reach goals I set.
This time around, my lungs are shot from being sick for a week or so. I’m not sure what the deal is but yesterday I coughed up a little blood in the shower. I know, I’m supposed to go to the doctor, but it’s cleared up today and as long as it doesn’t happen again I’m not gonna go until after the Marathon.
I woke up and thought I could only do four miles. I did 10 in about 2 hours. That’s slow, even more me, especially when the last couple of miles I were 15 minute miles.
The good news is that my knees are holding up. They feel kinda knocked around but are holding together better than I thought. I never guessed it would be my lungs that gave me problems since those have always been my super power.
