AM: 13.5 miles. Started feeling fine. Last mile was 8:20, I was dying, thirsty as hell and dehydrated despite drinking from two water fountains on the way.

PM: standard core routine + balance board/ankle strengthening + 3 barefoot

When I got back I felt tired and dizzy. drank pedialyte and 40 oz of water over the next hour and slept for two hours...I'm not sure why I'm dehydrated a lot. I'm drinking a ton of water.

AM: 8 easy

I'm not even going to call what I did this morning a workout. I could barely finish the run. I was sweating buckets and getting a chill followed by barely able to go 8:30 pace to get to my office. It happened again and I still feel tired/sick. I'm not sure what's wrong.

I've got what I think is a freaking sinus infection. Looks like I didn't take enough down time to completely get over my cold. I hate feeling like crap all the time. I guess I have no choice but to not run until I'm more fully recovered.

finally ran again today. I was getting antsy. I have some remaining mucous but have practiced keeping better hydrated.

new runner rankings from spring. I did pretty damn good considering the caliber of the people around here.
