Metabolic testing, trying not to die!

Metabolic testing, trying not to die!

Not the best week for bike commuting or running, but I did what I could.  Wednesday’s run was cut short by the weather, and Thursday I was traveling out of town.  Friday morning I had a metabolic test at a local triathlon shop.  I’ll write more on that when I get the results back, probably more than you’ll want to read.  Today’s long run also wasn’t what I had hoped for.  I had every intention of getting in 15 miles at a relaxed pace, but after 10 miles I thought I was going to sh*t myself.  I managed another 3 miles with butt cheeks clenched, but I knew I wouldn’t make it another 2 (miles, that is, as there was obviously a different number 2 on my mind at the time).  I don’t have that problem very often at all, but sh*t happens, eh?
