Fatigue is funny. It hit me this morning, much earlier then I expected it to, half way through todays run. It started with thoughts like, "Tomorrows run should be somewhere flat." And, by the afternoon I was thinking, "Does it really matter if I do another 50k on Saturday? Could I just run 20 and then another 10 on Sunday?" After five hours of being of the trail I have continued to ponder these ideas. Yes, the next run is going to be flat. No, it doesn't matter if I run another 50k. But, I will feel a lot better if I do.
