If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how tired I really am right now. Then, I’d offer you a cup of this fine (not really) hotel coffee. That’s all I really have right now, other than water. It’s good water though. So for that, I apologize. There’s got to be a coffee shop around here somewhere, but again, tired. And that bed is right there and, well, you know.
We ran a Spartan Super today, and let me tell you, there was some suffering going on out there. Out weather has been mild lately, but today was nothing but hot. Mid 90’s and humid turned what looked to be a good race into a struggle.
All was good, not great, at the 5 mile mark. By the sixth mile the cramps came on hard, and they didn’t quit. Not even after the race was done at about 8.5 miles. You could say that it was a tale of two races. There for a while, I thought that I would have a great, maybe my best, race ever despite not feeling my running legs early. Then the last bit, when it all fell apart.
Since the race ended, I’ve hydrated like a madman. We race again tomorrow after all, and it would be nice to do it without the cramps. I’m not confident. Tomorrow’s race is a Sprint so it won’t be as long. So that’s good. It should come in somewhere between 3 to 5 miles, and if I’m lucky, cramp free.
I do appreciate you stopping by! But unfortunately, I’m going to put my head on that pillow over there, so I’ll see you next week if not before. Have a great week everyone!
