15 Miles.........Grrrrrrr!!

It's amazing how things can sometimes change in a moment.

At 4pm this afternoon, I felt dead.
At 6pm I went out for what would have been a 5 mile run.
Then I woke up.
I ran all the way to Babylon. Ran 6 loops around the lake. Came back to my home. Continued past it. Ran to and inside the gym. Ran another 5 miles on the treadmill, and ended it with another 1/2 mile back home. All told? 15 miles. Hoo-Hah!!!

So let's see 42 miles on Sunday, 4 miles on Monday, and 15 today. Not shabby.
I really feel in the zone. My body feels good right now, and I just want to continue this streak going. I did everything the way it was supposed to be done and am glad with the results.

Of course, I have to be especially careful when I get into these streaks, because if I am not careful, I could easily run myself right into an injury. As it was, when I got home I started cramping in my feet, which means I've hit my dearly and unbeloved "threshold" which has cursed me all my life. Perhaps more 15 mile runs with strengthen me. But this wont happen without more sleep. And that's for sure!

There's a Corona waiting for me in the fridge. I'll sip on that while I watch the Mets hopefully finish off those disgusting Phillies. Shane Beefareeno *ahem* I meant, Victorino is

24 hours later I'm feeling only a little sore, but good. I'm thinking of getting up to see the Star Trek movie tonight to give myself a day off from running.
