Caught From Behind

Coming home from swimming 2000 yards it all caught up with me. I knew I had been overdoing it and I knew that like a slower runner in the lead, that sooner or later I would get caught from behind.

Fatigue is systemic. As the expression goes, "I am poured out like water." It is a "bone marrow' tired that I just can't seem to push through today. So today, I must confess to my humanity, my vulnerabilities and get some rest.

It is these times that give the good training days a richer meaning and a greater appreciation. It is the depth of the valleys that make climbing the mountains the exhilarating experience I seek. Thank God for the whole experience.
