After their stellar performance in the GW Birthday 10K yesterday, I woke up around midnight hacking with my lungs in full revolt. I was coughing so badly that Liberty had taken refuge out in the living room. So I made a deal with them, if they only 5 miles in them today that was okay, 10 miles would be great and the full 15 miles would probably earn them a visit to their favorite cardio-pulmonologist just to make sure they were okay ... and to get them some good drugs if they needed them. Yeah lungs for pulling off the full 15 miles!!! I only really had problems starting around mile 13. I was really surprised at my pace too considering yesterday's effort.
I do have figure out these GI issues before the marathon. Mile 13 is also where that started acting up. Given my training I am pretty sure I can pull off a BQ in 4 weeks, but that all goes out the window if I have GI issues and I end up with a repeat of last October's MCM. I don't know if eating earlier in the day will help clear it all out before the start. Just don't know.
I think I am going to be doing a lot of sleeping again today. We'll see if we get the nasty weather they have been promising for today or not. Then I also have to decided if I really do want to go see my cardio-pulmonory specialist. I already have 1 doctor's visit on the skids this week. I really do like my CP doctor, but he doesn't take any insurance so it usually ends up being a $700 - $1000 visit because, with my history and conditions, he always puts me through all kinds of tests. I haven't really had to see him in years (since I started running in 2006).
I hope everyone had a good run today. I'll catch up after I've taken my shower and eaten my breakfast ... uhm lunch :-)
