Marathon Training Day #87: Setbacks

I was really going to run today.


But my body rebelled. We had a work event last night and this work event kickstarted severe dehydration and a sore throat. I don’t really know how it happened, but I feel like I smoked 20 packs of cigarettes today. And the shoulder pain is still there. And my jaw decided it was feeling left out of the pity party and is doing something funky to my ear. It doesn’t really hurt in the traditional sense, but since my jaw has a history of being seriously effed up, I’m worried.

And I didn’t run. Let’s get better first. Run later.

On the bright side (maybe?!), the Bluenose Marathon race route is up. (The pic above clicks through to the full-size PDF map.) I’m a bit bummed that Point Pleasant Park, my go-to university running route (yes, I really had one of those. Just because I ran much, much less 10 years ago doesn’t mean I couldn’t have a favourite route) is near the end of the route. Perhaps I can find strength there.

I can’t wait to go home.

I can’t wait for this to all be over.
