disastrous 10K

Coach is right (he is always right!). Something is wrong. I don't know what it is, but something is really wrong.

Today I felt so VERY tired, and my legs were quite sore, even though all I did yesterday was an easy 30 min elliptical plus biking to work. My legs hurt today in the first 500m and it didn't get any better. I was to do 18km but it was clear from the start that wouldn't happen. My friend Kelly biked alongside me (she is a saint!) and encouraged me, but she couldn't help my legs.

I did 1:08:xx for 6:52/km with dead legs.

I'm kicking myself for not calling my doctor yesterday. I meant to, but work was busy and when I remembered his office was closed. I have to get checked out. Something is wrong. It's a holiday weekend, so I'll call him on Tuesday.

How is your iron level? When my iron levels were low, I was gasping for breath while running a 10:30 mile.
