Where is the FIRE because this is Hell !

The fire is smoldering…as if 911 has responded and extinguished all flames.

That is the best way I can put it. This blog is about my journey…and right now that journey is at a low point. I wrapped up the Hotter N Hell 100 mile ride and ½ marathon trail race. The plan was to back off a bit…attend the Texas Association of Magicians Convention Labor Day weekend…run and exercise just a bit…and then after Labor Day start ramping back up and start the training for Rocky Raccoon 100 Mile Ultra marathon.

I burn the training fire as hot as Nebuchadnezzar's Fiery Furnace and this summer was no exception. For the last two weeks, the furnace has cooled…to the extent that the reexamination of my drive has began to occur. Saturday morning I ran 10 of the worst miles I have run in 2 years. I came home, went to my daughters soccer game…then went home and slept for 2 hours…got up to eat something and hit the sack for another 2 hours…went to bed early and slept another 9 hours…and then didn’t do anything for the next 2 days on the exercise front…and furthermore didn’t care to either.

This week I went to boot camp on Tuesday…and will do something on Thursday and Friday…and who knows on Saturday. Hopefully things will turn around….both mentally and physically…till then…I watch my nutrition…try to maintain a fitness level…will press on…just pressing on…

We've all been through the lows. You'll be back to your super self in no time Dave! Hang in there!

My friend, your body is tired.....let it rest. Take off your Superman cape, fold it neatly and let it air out. You can put it back on soon enough. You still rock.......

What krisann said!

You want to start the Rocky journey fresh and extra spunky. Rest until you are. (within reason :) )

Let the fitness drop, let the body rest. When ready you will be able to take your body and mind to new heights.

Dave the folks who responded here know you and know their stuff. Listen to them. WE're all still proud, amazed, and inspired at what you've accomplished this year.

I hate those running blues. They suck. the good thing is that they will clear up, probably sooner then you think. good luck
