And, not all of it has been wise.
There was the time (six months ago) when I was oh-so-close to capping the 100 mile mark with my mileage. My body was not feeling beaten up, but it was more tired than I acknowledged. And, I am NOT a high-mileage runner. In fact, I pride myself on keeping my mileage pretty moderate. But, back in May, I was just so close...so I ran a couple of extra days and surpassed that century mark.
|The stretch-out following that final run in May.....|
|I spent the next couple weeks in a myriad of colorful athletic tape|
|Christmas in July, the 12-hour overnight ultra|
|Oh how I loved these Mizuno babies...even after they were in their prime|
|Sidelined. Humbled. And in pain.|
What mistakes have you made with your running? Did you learn anything from them? Repeat offender?
