Ran 12K tuesday and 8K wednesday, but it was just a physical drag. Don't know if it was from the dental procedure diet or just needing to recover from racing on sunday. After hitting the gym yesterday, got in 10K today, with 8K easy and the last 2K at my hoped for race pace for a week from sunday when I do the hilly super sunday 5 mile race. Felt better today. Need to run today thru monday, based on doctor's schedules for Deb and I, as well as tapering into the race.
Finally begining to be able to expand my diet a good bit. Tooth is pretty well settled down, and tongue is about half way healed. Hoping to get back to spicy by a week from sunday, so I can stop at papa murphy's pizza on the way home from the race and get a couple of cook at home pizza's with jalapenos and other hot toppings.
Here is a picture of me crossing the chip pad to record my race finish, and standing with a big loser from some season getting my award. Still am amazed how these people get treated like celebrities for finally taking control of their obesity......
