    great Commuting Errands 2 mi

    Last week was a low one. Still got around 6miles in with some cross training, but no energy and unwarranted muscle fatigue really made the day-to-day tough. It felt like I was regressing health-wi... read more

      After moving furniture all day, if running still sounds remotely appealing... I'd say your on the rebound :)

      Well, despite the frustration of not finding the etiology, NOT finding something on CT is good news. You have the right attitude for overcoming this and will come out the other side. My prayers are with you. Rest up and look forward to future miles!

      All that sounds like gallbladder stuff. I was jaundiced and had stones backing up the bike ducts causing histamine pile up making me itch til I bled. I hope you get rid of these symptoms soon!!
