Oregano’s Training Log – 9.18.2015

This is now every photo on my phone...
Since I got the kittens, this is every photo on my phone…

Another two weeks of “holding pattern” running. Training has been kind of weird the past few months. I’ve been trying to figure out what the problem is (lack of fitness? allergy to kittens? asthma?) and after a blood test yesterday it appears that the problem is most likely iron deficiency. Which is a bummer, but at least there is a clear solution. And for now, as there are no major races on the calendar, I will just enjoy running for fun at 7-8 min/mi pace : )


Saturday 9/5: This was the 27 mile run I referenced in my last post. So much fun and it was so amazing to do a run like this and not get injured, THANK YOU PT! : )  Run: 27 miles

Monday 9/7: Labor Day! To be safe I took this as a rest day as well.
