  1. To clarify my earlier test results, my CK level is 868 U/L, with normal values in the range 24 - 204, so it's elevated. With true rhabdo, the CK level would be 10,000-200,000. So I have a bit ... read more

      I have friend with recent experiences with this - it has taken her a good year to get back on track as it seems there are many peaks and troughs in the recovery process. I hope you have some good support and guidance for your recovery. All the best.

      Pumpkin seeds?

      1 cup is about 2.1 mg, and I probably need > 19mg, so I'd need 10 cups of them to hit my RDA. That's a lot of pumpkin seeds. Worse, pumpkin seeds are high in Phytic acid which blocks iron absorption. Phytic acid is also an issue with beans that are otherwise a reasonable source of iron.

      I *strongly* recommend you eat and drink what appeals. I've consistently found that forcing something down just makes a bad situation worse. If you believe you're really short on fluid or calories, then slow down or stop until the appetite returns.

      It took 4 days after I did the 12% downhill TM at 7 min pace for 60 minutes for the DOM to be gone. I had more problems with my calves than my quads. Go figure. I will do 1 more downhill at just 5% next week before Umstead. Got to give my body to chance to get back to 100%

      Franco- I've ran a relatively flat 100k and can't imagine my quads after another 38 miles of it, they were totally blown out in a way I've never experienced before. I've incorporated some dh running for Boston, but an ultra is different beast altogether.

      I never have problems with relatively flat 100 milers (+/-4.5K' gain/loss - this is the flatest I've done for a hundred) so was curious...anyway, thanks for all the feedback. :-) Most of the downhill training for me happens at races themselves.

      I under estimated the amount of Doms 2 days after the workout- 1 hour: -9% / 10.5 miles. Had to cut my Umstead run short today by 1 loop because of the thigh fatigue. Will not go this deep again until after Umstead.

      you are probably not interested in shorter races, but with this kind of turnover why not try to race a faster half or full marathon. you might get a good result, I mean, good even for you. or just race a fast marathon as a workout
