Scratchy Throats 'N Joggin'

Weigh-in: 234.5 lbs
Miles run today: 5.06 (5 miles run in 52:42)
Week Total: 10.09 miles

As you can see from the numbers I was a little slower today. I hate to give excuses, but I'm a bit tired and worn down today. Yesterday morning I had some slight scratchiness in my throat and it hasn't gone away, then last night after dinner this pain in my stomach came up that didn't go away until waking up this morning. Not sure if it was something I ate or what...

Not being really sure how the running was going to go this morning, I figured if I completely ran out of steam I'd do half the mileage then the other half this evening. After all, the goal is to get in just over 26 miles by Friday night, but I didn't say I could only run once a day.

In the end I ran the entire 5, but I'm hoping to feel better for tomorrows run.

I guess I could have worse problems.

Additionally, I was able to get all my walking in yesterday. That means I walked an additional 5 miles according to my pedometer not including the morning jog. So if I keep that up this week I'll have covered over 52 miles on foot this week. That seems like a lot! Here's to keeping it going.

You put me to shame. Here I am trying to find a spare moment to be active and I read that you're running a marathon over the course of this week. That is awesome. The fact that you'll probably double that with the walking that you do makes it even more impressive.

Its no wonder you're making such great progress. With all the hard work you're putting in, you definitely deserve all the rewards you're getting (minus the scratchy throat :). Keep it up Brian!!

I can't imagine doing 5 miles on a treadmill or the track, good on you for pushing yourself to tackle this goal.
