32 HOURS. That's about how much time I spent last week running and hiking.
28 HOURS. That's about how much time I spent sleeping last week.
No wonder I bonked.
I've spent a fair amount of time thinking about it today. Not because I'm obsessing over it (well, maybe a little of that), but because I'm trying to learn from it. The easy solution is not to try to do Badwater pacing, Whitney, Baldy and 9 Trails all in one week. I'm also guessing that I didn't eat enough quickly enough after Baldy on Saturday and didn't take in enough calories on before crashing on Sunday. I'm usually very good about recovery fueling after running. I'm still getting used to taking in enough calories during my longest runs. Being a little short is fine for 4 or 5 hour days, but I need to be smarter about it when I'm going as long as I did last week. That's the good thing about "bad" days, there's a lot of lessons to learn.
I promise to stop obsessing over yesterday's run and start putting the lessons into action. Right now.
