i started the week with a very large blister on my left foot. i finally gave in monday night and let my wife drain it (isn't she lucky!). all week i was in a bit of a funk, i.e., low energy, no motivation, and a bit depressed. i thought maybe by the weekend i would be ready to consume a good dosage of mileage, but suprisingly i only logged 6 miles total between saturday and sunday.
i am feeling much better now. here is my present goal: "enjoy shaping my body into an efficient-endurance-masterpiece!" i am looking forward to the "des moines marathon "on 10.18.2009.
