I’m glad to be back running closer to sea level after a week at 5,000 feet. My knees and ankles felt a little achey from the rough terrain last week, but it was nice to be able to run without feeling like I had a bag over my head. The temperatures this afternoon were in the mid 70s, just like most of my runs in Honduras, but the humidity was quite a bit higher.
I had hoped to get in an easy 10-miles, but it got shortened to six once my stomach started doing cartwheels. I’m sure this is related to my Honduras trip. This happens every time I travel there no matter how careful I attempt to be with food, water, hygiene, etc. I hope that I can get control of it without it affecting my running schedule this week.
I’m looking to get in a solid 12-mile run tomorrow and 60+ miles total for this week. Really trying to keep my mileage up as I prepare for leading the 4-hour pace group at the Country Music Marathon in five weeks. That’s going to be a long time on my feet!!
