After not running for a week and eating/drinking everything in sight, this week is turning into a slog. Legs super tired after running a few times again. Rain today is ok. Trying to wake up...

Probably should be a 6. I am too quick to select 5 when I post these in the morning and facing a long day of work. A 5 for right now, a 6 for overall.

Sometimes a break can be good for the body.. as is drinking everything is sight. As long as you know it is a short period and you go back to healthy after a while, I would say ENJOY!! It is hard to go back to normal, but you will soon!

Yep, I say enjoy your health & fitness days off every now & then. I'd think it'd be hard to stick with everything if you didn't. Hope you go even above a 6 today, Jeff!

Nice weekend. Got a lot done. Ran for the first time in a week yesterday. Feel every extra pound from eating/drinking like crazy for a week. Back to normalcy today!

Back up at 4:30. Ugh, that's too early! Blister is healing nicely finally. Work is going to be super busy...feel like I've been ignoring it for a few weeks. Now have to buckle down!

Back to work (well, really was yesterday) and normalcy. Will be hard to adjust back to eating right. Blister keeping me from running, but it will heal. Mostly feeling pretty good!
Jeff M

Went to bar to have beer with my Thurs running group last night. The guys I used to run with who ditched me were there (as always). They didn't come over to say hello or congrats or anything about my 50. Ignored me completely.

It hurt, tbh. But f- them! They couldn't have run this race at that distance. I proved I don't need them (as running partners or 'friends'). Better off without that kind of high school drama in my life! Yes!

Partly thanks to you Jeff I breezed through my first CouchTo5k week 2 run today. Keep going! Just because you used to run with a group it doesn't mean they were ever worthy of being looked up to.

Thanks, pandas! You're right, John...life's too short for that kind of drama. Glad you're doing your runs! It gets much easier, I promise. And more fun! :)

My running shoes are for overpronation. I think I've been told I flattish feet before, but now I'm not sure and worried about possible injury. I find the overpronation shoes better than my normal ones so maybe, I don't know. I'll test myself soon...

John T

I didn't know about overpronation and shoes made for that until today and bought them by accident years ago...

24th out of 60 is very impressive. Well done! I could never do that, running is not my thing, I'm more of a swimmer, so doubly impressed.

Sense of anxiety and dread sinking in. Weather looks sketchy - thunderstorms and humid. Trying to recognize anxiety for what it is and that it's not reality. Brain is the biggest impediment to success...and motivator, too, I guess.

Some anxiety is good, it keeps you alert. And think about all of us cheering you on!! And even if you don't finish, you started, that is the main thing!!! Checking the weather now is no use, it might change again in an hour...

So sad. The wife of my best friend (and neighbor) killed herself about 6 weeks ago. Sounds like her sister is now dead. Assume same way. My poor friend now has to be there for her family.

She had a loving wife and two great kids. She saw how hard this was on family. I can't comprehend how she could do that.

And my poor friend who now has to live through this again. He is still deeply grieving. He can't be strong for them.

And they're several hours away, so I can't be there for him other than to watch his cats.

My legs held up well yesterday, which is encouraging. I'm working on them hard, rolling them out. Took ibuprofen before the run, and that helped. Always do that on races... My big race is one week away! ARGH!
