Week 8 of Marathon Training
Sunday, October 07, 2012
This week was a bust. After the Tower of Terror Race, I think from walking around for 4 hours soaked from sweat, and then not getting enough sleep, I caught a nasty cold. I usually catch it early by eating a clove of garlic when I first feel symptoms, but on Monday, the symptoms were so slight I didn't pay attention. I did my upper body and core workout on Monday and that's the last time I worked out. By Tuesday, I was sick in bed. And on Wednesday, traveled to SC to visit my Grandmother and felt miserable the entire time there (including my ears being plugged the entire day). I had planned to hook up with a running group while there, but nothing like that happened. I'm still not 100% but it seems the cold is out of my chest now, and I am feeling better.
So today I got out there and ran 8 Miles and felt awesome! I went easy and enjoyed it! In the words of the group "Chumbwumba", "I get knocked down, but I get up again!"
