So apparently I’m still sick, not so that I have to take of of work, but so that I’m having a hard time being myself. I’m tired, sore, and gots no energy. But I’m still trying to fight through it as the Rock n Roll Half Marathon is next week. Problem is, every time I try to run, it really saps my strength. And I definitely am more sore and take longer to recover. It’s crazy. I’ve had a hard time finishing my last couple long runs all together. But I’ll keep on carrying on.
St. Pats is coming up and maybe some Guinness will do me good. It always has before.
But other than that, the peeps we’ve been training for the half marathon have been doing great. However we wanted to offer them some extra info, and to our luck, local elite runner Logan Sherman agreed to speak to our group.
Whenever I see Logan at a race, no matter the distance, I know pretty much everyone else is running for second place. Just the other week he won the Cowtown Ultra Marathon. But he is also about to graduate as a chiropractor. He’s very in tune with athlete’s bodies and has certifications in all sorts of treatments like ART. So it was very cool that he came to talk to us. He shared lots of tips about nutrition, proper warm ups, general health, and injury prevention. He also took the next couple hours to answer any questions we had. Very interesting and informative.
Why do I tell you this? Cause I think we all need to take advantage of educational opportunities that are around us. If you’re interested in something, seek out some experts and pick their brain marbles. You never know what you might learn and how it may help you in your endeavors.
