Marathon Training Plan Bit The Dust

4 years ago

Waahhh... wahhhhh.... that's all I've been doing this week it feels like. I'm sick (STILL!). Either this is a cold that is just lingers or my family keeps passing it back and forth to each other. Regardless, my training plan has bit the dust this week. I got in one (Yes, I will pause a moment for you to gasp), just one run this week. I will not freak out. I will not freak out. I will not freak out. There is still time to recover and get back to the plan. There is still time to recover and get back to the plan. There is still time to recover and get back to the plan. I will not freak out. I will not freak out. Ok... so you see where my mind keeps going! But I think I made the best decision by blowing off the rest of this week and just resting. Pushing through a run when I was so exhausted probably wouldn't have been beneficial.

I spent the majority of yesterday on the couch. Hubby graciously took Lil Man out for the day, and I had a day of rest. I'm resting again today. I'm hoping that after resting this weekend, I will be back to my normal self tomorrow.

I'm thinking of lysoling everything, possibly even the dog! These germs need to go!

If I'm feeling better, I plan to repeat my plan from a couple of weeks go. I'll do 4,7, and 18 again.

Here's to hoping another day of rest will get me back on my feet. I have pavement to pound!
