Too much to say....

about a whole lot of nothing, lol.  Forgot a couple of things I wanted to mention in the previous post.  First off, today's run.......I found myself literally crying around mile 4.5.  I feel like I've lost my running mojo, the joy, the want to get out there and play.  I realize it's the stupid heat and humidity and last year's mild summer very much spoiled me but this is no fun right now :-(.  I'm trying to do the bare minimum that I can in order to survive the upcoming marathon and hopefully once we start getting some cool mornings, the fun will return.  As for now.......it's just a slogfest and I feel like I'm going in slow motion, ugh.

Next, there's a duathlon next weekend that I seriously need to decide asap on whether to race it or just go for another long ride Saturday morning.  I'm also feeling very guilty about not helping my running club's Grand Prix team on the races very much this year.  Granted I'm not super fast but every little bit does help and I just feel like I'm not pulling my weight this time around :-(.

My feet........I can't get my hotspot issue dialed in while cycling, grrrrrrrrrrrrr.  New shoes, new insoles, currently adjusting the cleat position with every ride.  One more adjustment there and I suppose the next step is to start trying some different clipless pedals.  I love my Speedplay Light Actions though, zero leg pain other than the feet with them and I don't really believe they're the problem.

Last week's stats
19.12 miles running (fall back week, I was .88 miles shy of the 20 on schedule)
112.5 miles cycling (woo-hoo!!!!!!!!) only one ride was sorta flat.

3 weeks until the Hotter than Hell century!!!!!! Nervous but excited about it.  Then Labor Day Weekend is the Tupelo 14.2 miler :-))).  I also need to decide on the Big Dam Bridge 100 for September.

:( I wish I could do the Tipelo 14.2...I really liked that race last year. I'm in my own running funk....if it's not one thing, it's another...In the process now of trying to get my custom insoles "just right"..aka...not killing my knees...

I hope the insoles get adjusted soon. The Tupelo 14.2 has been on my want to do list for past couple of years. This year will just be a training run for me though, no racing it :(
