Well the Bear Mountain 10k was yesterday. Now I know why they call it the hardest 10k in Canada. Cuz it is hard. And hilly. I had some extensive chiropractic work done right before the race and I must remember never to do that again. One of the areas he worked on must have been inflamed or irritated because I was in excruciating pain for the entire race and then most of the day after. The usual things that hurt didn't hurt tho, which was amazing, We'll see how it is today, headed out after work for the usual sunday run with Vic.

fighting the infection

Just sitting in buisness class with L-Hutt, avoiding doing a question. This class makes me sad, it's at the end of the day, and 2 hours long and I'm sleepy....and the sun goes down so early...I blame the recession...anyhow, that's all the complaining I'm gonna do! Work tonight and then tomorrow off school! Yay!! So exciting! 11 days til the Bear Mountain 10k!! Yay!! Run run run!! Alright, back to work!!

feeling good....foot is a little tweaky after my workout today, but not painful, just kinda achy. 10k tomorrow will be a good test of it's healedness.....which i don't think is even a word.....

currently on the couch, avoiding taking my post-workout supplements....because my liquid iron tastes like garbage....
well, not garbage, like cold chicken broth. that's exactly it, cold chicken broth. it makes me wanna vomit every day. So i avoid it. It takes me a good half an hour after each workout to work up the bravery to take my iron....blargh....ok ok i go,
iron time
