May 31/09 - June 16/09: ???????

hehe, i don't think i will come close to breaking my 10 or 17 day records, but just the fact that these stats are even on the table now that i am in my present post-op state of lower energy, strength, speed, endurance, and higher weight, is truly amazing, and i feel a real strong sense of accomplishment for the running i have done over the past 7 days!

anyway, on with the June 3/09 update: i was totally exhausted last night after my third consecutive marathon/ultralike day. i knew my body needed a rest so that's exactly what it got today. i had a very slow gentle run this morning with a friend, then a run (mostly walk) up to left pond for a little sun tanning, even though it was only 17 degrees. only 15.7 k today, which is actually quite a bit, but given the circumstances, seems like a warm up!

i'm still very much feeling the affect of the past 7 days, so i am planning rest for the remainder of the week. Sunday will start off a new week with a 15K road race, which will be a very bittersweet race. this marks the one year anniversary of my runner up finish at the 2nd annual Eastern Marathon in Portugal Cove, NL. they decided to discontinue the marathon and only offer a 15K road race this year due to poor interest in the marathon. oh well, it will still be fun to run that course again, but disappointing that Newfoundland lost one of its few marathons.
