  1. FYI: Dry needling is suuuuuuuuper weird! But my new physio person is aces. Needled both my legs (not just the one that's super sore), taped my foot, gave me extra tape until I can get out and ... read more

      Yikes. Sounds like a version of acupuncture? I don't trust any of that stuff, but if you think it helped, then it helped (placebo effect). There was a big study of acupuncture to see if it worked and if the person thought they were getting it, even if they weren't, they thought they were feeling better. Anyway, whatever.

      While I would love to drown you in practical advice, our bodies react 180 degree opposite to fuel intake. I need to hammer mine with food (every 20-30 minutes) and water (ALL THE TIME) or I fall to pieces. Or, you know, dehydrate in the middle of the mountain wilderness *eyeroll* You seem to understand your body's needs just fine, I don't know if overthinking it right now is going to help. But then I'm not coach T or fast. :-) Just go out there and do it. It's waiting for you.

      I generally run without eating anything, but I discovered that drinking a bit at every other water station and pour the rest on my neck, seemed to make a difference. I always swallow air, then suffer for half a km before I am able to burp it out though. And I tried the dried fruit and it did seem to make a difference. But if I eat gels, gag, they make me so nauseous.... no matter how I tried to train to eat them, it never worked. Anyway we are all different, but it's good to practice.

      I always run with (and drink) water - all year round. On (very) long runs, especially in the summer, I take S Caps regularly. I never have problems with cramping or dehydration during races. If you feel water sloshes in your stomach, just drink it in small sips. Not drinking is suicide.

      Looks like a great run even though it may not have felt it! You’ll be feeling more yourself if you do a little less while the immune system is still on the up and up. Kudos for the efforts while still healing!!

      Sorry you scared the bird! We have them all over the place down here, but I saw an item about the Ottawa Turkey on the news feed the other day! As for your run, you did fine anyway.

      Only 22 repeats? I would have lost count once I got into the double digits.Great workout, Barb! Do you speak fluent geese?

      After reading Allen's comment, I had to laugh. I am imagining you honking back at the big birds. They sound like definite a**holes and I hope you didn't slip on the green droppings. The St Patrick's Day race used to go through a section of paved trail that was dangerous with all the goose poose. Anyway, good hill work!
