Dirty day

10:45 AM - 4 miles, 30:35 - Lake Park.
3 big loops on the dirt, followed by a mile on the track with 4 x 100-meter strides on the back straight.

6:15 PM - 13 miles - BC Res.
25 minutes up, drills, 6 x 4 minutes hard w/2 minutes recovery, 25 minutes down.

Solid workout on the dirt tonight with both Ryans, Jeff, Nieskens, Fabian and Maloney. Pace was supposed to be at 10K effort but I think we were a bit faster than that, perhaps 4-mile effort, whatever that means. Regardless, I felt good at the pace we were running and just focused on keeping the effort consistent and my breathing relaxed. It was a nice rebound from Saturday's stitch-induced shit show.

No new trouble in the kitchen to write about, just the normal discomfort. I did have a bloody nose after the workout, however, as well as some blood in my spit, and while I don't think it's related to the malady in my midsection, it does have me mildly concerned.

I think I'm gonna bite the bullet and get this thing looked at sooner rather than later, which is unfortunate because I just got my new cross spikes tonight and I really really want to lace 'em up at Franklin Park in a few weeks. At this point though, I've just gotta take things one day at a time and watch out for my well-being.

NEVER TILT YOUR HEAD WHEN YOU HAVE A BLOODY NOSE! NASAL PASSAGES AND THROAT ARE CONNECTED...this is why some people can string spaghetti through their nose into their mouth, and why blood was in your spit! ...but get your tummy checked!
