Gotta keep this short as I need to head off to my appointment to get the wisdom teeth extracted... all four.
Dan and I wrapped up May with a long run in Breakheart Reservation and Lynn Woods Reservation. I had hoped this would be a nice long run to settle up before today's surgery, but the heat, humidity, and hard workouts of the last couple of weeks really did a number on the legs. So much so that even at 30 minutes I was wondering if four hours was even possible, because my quads just felt like junk!
Dan sums it up here, about 2 hours in...
We ended up scrapping the run at about 3 hours and 13 miles. Which was a good idea because I felt hung over for the rest of the day, basically because of the dehydration incurred on the run.
Now I get to spend the remainder of the week off my feet, with a sore mouth, then head to the doctors Wednesday to have a 'suspicious look mole' removed from my back, AND as I was cleaning up after the run yesterday I found a lovely tick getting ready to hunker down. It came off easy, but there was blood, which of course has me thinking about Lyme Disease. So when the mole is removed I'll surely also get blood drawn. At least I found the tick early on, and can monitor the bite for the rash/monitor my health for the symptoms. This comes on the heels of a co-worker who spent 5 days in the hospital with heart issues, come to find out he has Lyme Disease.
Yeah, I am freaking out. So much for the Deet bath I took yesterday prior to the run!
Happy Trails Everyone!
