No Running…Lots of Ketchup!

ircHaven’t run in 2 weeks…been resting the knee which I tweaked 6 weeks ago at the Oil Creek 100 and then ran 2 more marathons over the next 30 days…yep, crazy idiot stuff which qualifies me for the IRC, Idiot Running Club, (a real club…thinking of joining)… but it was for a fundraiser, $4500, to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and cancer research…worth every mile!

So, the last 2 weeks with no miles…yesterday tried a couple of miles walk/jog…did ok but not great, so maybe another week…but what’s weird is that I feel strangely ok with not running…

Part of it may be that I: ketchup

    • logged nearly 1700 miles to get ready for the races…might have overdone it
    • am finally getting out of Marathon Brain – kind of like when you hit the wall but carried over to real life…you can’t do the math, can’t remember where you were going…very embarrasing
    • am finally catching up on 6 months of procrastination…more like 8
    • am eating cookies again…and pizza…and Ketchup! :-)

Found this quote…only logged a couple of 100 mile weeks…but it seemed appropriate:

“If you run 100 miles a week, you can eat anything you want — Why? Because (a) you’ll burn all the calories you consume, (b) you deserve it, and (c) you’ll be injured soon and back on a restricted diet anyway.” –Don Kardong

Working on next year’s training schedule… I think I hear a cheese burger calling my name!  :-)
