Journey to Sub 3 - Episode 3: 5K Race Recap + Blood Work Results
I grabbed a big 5K PR, but then got tough news in my blood work results. I held off on sharing much over the last 3+ weeks because I was navigating what was happening to me and how to take action. My blood work came back and showed I have a severe B12 deficiency, which explains all the symptoms I was experiencing with fatigue, weakness, poor recovery, etc. But I still feel lost - in a state of limbo - while I wait for the supplements to take effect and figure out how to salvage the remainder of this cycle which only has 9-10 weeks left to build. It’s tough to want to continue chasing a big goal when the training had such a rough start and I feel like I’m still trying to get it back on track.
In this video, I share more about the race with some post race video and actual race footage, and what I’ve been doing to work through my nutrient deficiency. Check it out!
