March 2012

What a great spring to be running. I have fallen into the cycle of doing a long/difficult event, and then watching my mental and physical motivation tank for a few weeks until it's time for the next event. I'm not necessarily complaining... I love having events to look forward to. I recently made a last-minute decision to join the pace team for the Little Rock Marathon. With about 2 week's notice, I had a pacer singlet on my back and a 3:45 sign in my hand. It was a blast.

I did get some scary news this week. My CPK's came back elevated, a full 2 weeks after the Little Rock marathon, after plenty of rest and good self-care. I'm not sure why, I can't think of a good reason that I should be elevated. It's only slight, and all I've done is bump back up to 10 mgs of prednisone, so we'll see if that does anything to calm me down. I thought I felt a little sore and inflamed this week, and it turns out that there was something there.

I'm going to try and keep going forward with the other events that I was planning for this spring, which really only involves a longer race towards the end of April. No reason to think too hard about it just yet. I'll keep you posted...
