Marathon Monday: Week 9

Guys, not to toot my own horn but I am killing lately. Three weeks in a row I’ve hit all of my training runs!

I was a little nervous I wasn’t going to fit in my long run, though. I like to leave it for Saturday mornings, but when I woke up on Saturday I was exhausted and my calf had a strange twinge in it so I went to the gym for some light strength training to loosen up, and then went I scheduled it for Sunday morning I woke up at 4AM with a blinding migraine and night-sweats. I took a Naproxen (the only thing that will cure my migraines) and went back to bed until my body naturally wanted to wake up. I drank lots of water all day and after dinner I was able to pound out that run.
