Let's just say "I'm a little behind."
I'm back from my southern Thanksgiving. This year I went down to visit some friends in N.C. and had a blast down there. It was just unfortunate that I wasn't feeling healthy, though I must admit they got me turned around and I'm feeling much better now.
I'm quite a ways behind on my Xmas goal and given that I've had a week off, I certainly can't just jump back into the now four mile base runs that I should be doing this week, but I'll do my best to get as close as I can. It will be at least a few more days before I attempt another workout - I want to be sure that I have fully gotten over this cold before I run myself down at all.
I won't let this cold get the best of my mental game or my physical training, but I'm sure it will serve as a sizable speed bump. Have you ever hit this kind of speed bump in your own training? Leave a comment and tell me about it. Maybe you got sick in the middle of training or just before a race. Did you get shipped out on a business trip unexpectedly or get an injury that put you out for a time? Let me know, I'd love to hear it (maybe I won't feel so bad about my own "bump" then).
