This week I ran 0 miles. I was exhausted and volleyball made things difficult. I could tell that my exhaustion wasn't normal...
Sure enough, I woke up today intending to do 7 or 8 miles and immediately realized 1) I couldn't breathe, and 2) my throat was on fire. I can't even draw in enough breath to cough, and my ear canals feel like they're burning.
I blame student-generated germs.
I'd run through a sore throat, but when I get a cold that affects my asthma, I need to be down for the count. My half is this weekend. I wonder if I can do low-mileage this week as I recover and still run the half in a semi-decent time.
(I was planning to do some bridge work this week because I haven't at all and I have to run a pretty steep bridge twice for this half...but I figure at this point, I just need to suck it up and accept that my training has been spotty.)
|The bridge I'll need to be running...pretty darn steep.
|Nothing like a fun race that actually benefits a good cause!
How was your Halloween?
