Sg number 15. Very ambivalent about running Sg. Worried about a wall since hit one at bcc half trying for a 1:30 and walked a few times last three miles. Was at 6:49 avg there at 10 miles and came in 1:33:54. Not trained well for the distance. Working full time. Last year worked part time. No injury. The shot into symphysis pubis bone August 6 was miraculous. So that’s when training began. Not having an injury was amazing. So nothing I had to say stop for. Except some odd breathing issues lately. Heart rate and catching breath feeling. Headache night before right face occipital. Right arm and down leg. Vitamin b12 shot. Perhaps a complex. Kim can’t remember. Kelsey got sick right after shot. But probably food poisoning bc I was pretty nauseated the night before too and had a bathroom stop at mile 11 (8:55) when I felt strong and suddenly right after I felt weak. I had six Gus and chanted nurse the gu to get through race/workout every 4 miles. Two I could only take half. Poured water over me at last several aide stations to wake me up. No adrenaline except miles 15 and 16. 7:25 and 7:06 thought it would last and had gained on 3:25 pacer and suddenly I felt that heart rate thing again. And just ran slow after that. Have been off lexapro since June. Last year on it. For anxiety. Menopause does that to a woman. And it’s been 6 years since. It gives me a boost in feeling like I can do things so maybe I will go back on. (Not the impending doom feeling) After race had a congested chest and productive cough. Seems gone today. Day after. But now left ear feels full of fluid and I have a sore throat on left side. And headache left side. Slightly sore lower back, left shin and bottoms of feet. Just slightly. Moving really well. Feet probably from wearing new casual shoes that are flat all day Friday. The weather was perfect. Not too cold with arm sleeves from Jane that I took off at mile 20 sadly. Cause they were nice. Never felt like I went out too fast or anything. I felt like I should have been able to run a faster second half with more miles under my training and a long run not so far in distance four weeks ago. Weekly miles were 28 last week. 35 two weeks ago and 35 week before. Highest week was 52 four weeks ago. Three 42 mile weeks in August. And before that only 20s if that.
Drove down to Sg at 10 am with Kim and Jane who ran awesomely Well trained so expected that 2:52 and 2:46 respectively. Summer drove us down. She didn’t run. Has mono. Melanie injured so didn’t run. But she got inducted into the run of fame for Sg!! Carley came to pace in Kim But Kim was too fast so she only went five miles with her. Poor Kelsey was too weak to run from throwing up. Summer drove us a half mile from the start. Ran to start by myself Kim and Jane were up ahead. Only 20 min til start stood in potty line for 15 min Gun off for the wheelchairs when got to it No toilet paper left. Luckily Kim gave me her roll so I got that out of bag. Ran over to gear drop with one minute left I handed the lady my bag Got through to start behind 3:25 pacer about 10 seconds. 38 seconds behind the clock. Toasted marshmallow gu 3-5 miles. Raspberry 7-9. Marshmallow 11-12. Stinger 16-17. Marshmallow 20-21. Think I dropped one. Part of a banana at mile 22. Water Gatorade alternate sometimes both. Breakfast was toast with pb and oatmeal and two bites of a banana. Two salt tabs before race two at half way.
