The Race Report Begins . . .

The race story never begins the day of the race, does it?  Well, here I am sick, my second day (just five days before my much looked forward to race).  I spent all day yesterday in bed.  Went off to work for three hours, returned and after dinner, crawled promptly back in bed.  Feeling better today.  Want so much to run, even if it's pavement.  The gym would be good too.  But I'm still achey, throat is sore and congestion thick.   I HAVE to get well by this weekend.  And I'm so afraid that if I don't rest, I will make myself worse.

Such is life.  Perhaps this rest will make me better for Calico : /

  2. Hope you are feeling better already! There is nothing worse than being sick just before a race. Just take it easy and rest, rest, rest.

  3. Feel better!! Rest is more important than running right now - heal up so you are ready to race!

  4. I'm betting you'll be ready by game time. Now is not the time to force anything. You've done the hard work already. Looking forward to the post-race report. You go ROCKSTAR!!!

  5. Oh no! I am sorry your sick! In my experience I run awesome after an extended period of rest.. it is like my body was craving a run and I have a ton of energy. I think Henry is right, you have done the work. I hope you get well soon!!

    Excited to hear all about it!!
