Just under 2 weeks away from Rocky and my body is beginning to really let me know how much I've been using it lately.
Little aches and pains that, at times, are a little more than "little" aches and pains. I seem to be having hamstring issues on the left leg and sciatic pain on the right. Neither seems to bother me while running, but afterwards, I feel like a little old lady limping around.
I'm really fatigued today, so I ditched my scheduled run. I am seeing a lot of bruising popping up in weird spots. These two symptoms tell me that my iron is probably low again, so I'm doubling my intake and praying I get some energy back soon.
I am looking forward to Rocky. I wish I was more excited than I am, but right now, I just want to get through it, survive, and then rest. Not sure if this is a normal feeling, but it is my normal right now.
I am officially in taper mode and I imagine many drawers and closets will get organized over the next two weeks. Or maybe I will just delve into the Harry Potter books I've always wanted to read...
