the hard part of the week is over
Or at least it seems that way.
Last week I had a fair amount of dental work - 7 teeth pulled, including 3 wisdom teeth - and though it's not as bad as it sounds (I keep telling myself), it seems to have taken a lot out of me. There's only been a little pain but I'm really tired and ragged out, and it's been hard to eat, and I've been pretty crabby. Sounds like a perfect excuse to slack during workouts, but for some reason I've been able to stick to the program. I've even stuck to my resolve not to stop home and whine during medium-long runs.
Anyway, I've done 49 of what I hope will be 86 miles this week, and tomorrow is a 6-mile recovery, and I feel like a kid who knows there'll be a substitute teacher at school tomorrow.
