It has been so long since my last post! I think I am going through a bit of blogging burnout. I have not felt very creative lately, and that makes blogging very difficult. With the weather change and summer sun approaching, I can't help but feel more energized!
My training was going well. Last time I posted I talked about getting my mojo back. Well, the mojo thing kind of came and went. I have struggled the last couple of weeks and am not really feeling all that good. My legs hurt and feel heavy. My energy level is nil. I am not sure what is going on but I do think it is time for a Lupus checkup. Lake Sonoma 50 is this Saturday, and I am not feeling good about it. I will just use this race as a training run for Big Horn and see how it goes. I just recently had some cortisone injected into my toe that was operated on and it doesn't seem to have helped. That is getting me down too. But..... then, as usual, I think about how lucky I am to be who I am and I think to myself, "Thank you , God" for creating me. I am almost embarrassed to even have written the above complaint. My problems are nothing compared to many.
I just read a great book called, REVERSE HEART DISEASE NOW, by Stephen Sinatra. It is written by two cardiologists, ( one is a runner), who tell you how to combine the benefits of modern medicine, over the counter vitamins and supplements, and simple lifestyle changes to have a healthy heart, whether you have acute or chronic disease or just want to prevent cardiovascular disease from developing. It's a great read. I went down and immediately bought and started on some new supplements and I am hoping to feel a difference!
