Current work stress plus training finally caught up to me and I got sick this week. I haven’t been sick in a good while; I suppose it was a reminder to myself to chill out – to relax and recuperate. I took the first half of the week off: Monday was a Rest Day after Sunday’s 11-miler, and then my body crashed. I managed to do a few light workouts Friday through Sunday, but I only ran a total of 20 minutes this week. Enter freak out #1. The race is two weeks from today. Enter freak out #2.
A cold won’t stop me from going to the Saturday market!
