well, i'm up another 4 pounds this month, but still -3 overall on the year, so that's good news. these hormones are supposed to lead to "10-20 pounds of weight gain" so i am really going to have to watch out for that. the hunger and thirst continues to be a problem and the feelings of lethargy continue as well.
i had a sluggish 4k run this afternoon and gave up, even though i originally wanted to run more. i think i am still recovering from the lack of sleep from that near allnight flight. oh well, i have a 10k run planned tomorrow so i will plan to get to bed early tonight.
word is starting to spread around the city about my 2 marathons in 2 days, even though the local news paper elected not to cover the story. it's nice to be sitting at the pond feeding the ducks and getting congratulatory messages from strangers running by.
i discovered an interesting organization, the marathonmaniacs.com folks who are known to do insane and unique amouts of running. my 2 runs in 2 days in 2 countries alone was enough to reach their level 4 criteria. i will plan to join their organization in the near future in hopes of making some new friends and learning some new tips about endurance running.
