What the....!!!! Not sure of what was going on with me this morning but I had NO - let me repeat "NO" friggin energy, was achy and found it hard to breathe. This, after a rest day yesterday. I suspect the culprit of my misery was last nights crab cakes. I noticed they were a bit salty - not to mention that I'm slightly allergic. But who cares when they taste so good, right? WRONG! My left arch started hurting so I stopped and tightened my shoe lacing - then 15 minutes later had to untighten (retie) them because my toes were getting numb. CRAZY how foods can effect your running like that. I won't be doing THAT again anytime soon. Oh well.... I guess there's tomorrow... I hope everyone has a spectacular running week! Enjoy!

    How bizarre. Now, for anyone like me doing a low-carb diet, they actually advise you to dose up pre-run on a good, salty beef broth, because the diet changes how your body handles salt. But even before the diet, I've never had salt affect my run negatively that i can recall.

    Well, here's the thing; tho it was much harder for you to run, I see you still ran it -- still got in your usual morning six. So, maybe if it felt harder, then maybe it did you even more good than it normally would. Maybe?

    Thanks Karen, Brianna, Jamese, Carolyn, Melissa, Danger, Deanna, Ric, Elizabeth and Henry. I believe the combination of salt (foot swelling) and shellfish (shortness of breath/joint swelling) did me in. I try to limit eating it, but frankly I'm allergic to so many things that sometimes I decide to throw caution to the wind and "live dangerously". LOL! But.... there's always a price when you do that I guess.....
