Prana has been erratic this week. I’m trying to take it easy this week to focus my attention on the long run at the end of the week. I was sub 6 minutes on one section today and then the wheels came completely off.
I started to get a cramp and then my stomach revolted and I started to grind down. I stopped a couple of times to see if it would pass and then I thought I was going to get sick.
I ended up walking the last .5 mile back to work. To add insult to injury – I got cat called from some homeless dudes on 12th ave. And by cat called I mean cat called like I got in Las Vegas by the drunk ladies from Edmonton that I ran into at 5am in the lobby of the Cosmopolitan. “Hey red shorts! Come over here and talk to us…”. The homeless guys were more, “dude! Nice shorts!”. I would have walked over and said… I’m not exactly sure what I would have said, but I needed to get back to the office post haste. I had issues man.
It really may be that I’m running into a wall and I need to make some changes to get to the next level. I’m suspecting mostly diet and timing. Sounds so damn prima donna, but it’s all about the details. People who perform at high levels just don’t do the same things as regular folks. That’s just how it is. It’s the trade.
The trails were super nice though. Marquam is starting to dry out and the trail around some of the bigger muddy parts is compact and dry. Very runnable. I was jumping down some steep sections today … catching air 🙂
