Off late & missing race pictures

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

So I've been getting off from work late this week. Today we had half of our tiny team out, so it was pretty hectic.

I finally got a hold of the event pictures from my event on Sunday. I have a smattering of them on my phone (my only camera for the event), a handful from a SparkFriend BEFITWITHGUSTO, and a couple from the local newspaper's coverage (which sadly aren't any of me-haha). In short, all the pictures that I need for a recap blog, I HAVE!! Yay!! But, I haven't had the time to get them all together on this laptop (which has been freezing up lately, by the way. :| Eek.)

More importantly, I'm finally at week 9 of our 10K training running program, and at the point where if I miss any more planned runs, I risk serious injury from pushing forward without the training. I can't hop and skip around, I need to really be consistent to help build my body and avoid injury. In looking at what my current post-strep throat routine is, I barely see how to fit it in.

Also, I'm going back to the doctor in the morning to figure out why my ear is still in pain and clogged even though I finished the strep throat anti-biotics on Monday morning.

I'm afraid to push myself too hard. I want to be healthier, not injured.

If I have to end up picking up training from a week that is appropriate for me, I'll just have to do that. But I can't let the excuses and poor reasoning build up. Those will hold me back frmo the next level -- from where I need and want to be!

    I really understand the part about going back and forth, when I am consistent I feel so pulled together and awesome. Strep throat is harsh, hope the next Dr. visit goes well for you!

    Don't push yourself if your body is not 100%...rest is as important as activity at that point.

    You will get yourself going again, I just know it...You are one determined Lady!

    Being sick totally blows. I hope your next round of drugs knocks that stuff out of your system so you can get back to your awesome training! That attitude already is the right stuff! Stay positive!

    You'll get there, and back there. Strep is a pain in the patoot, eh?

    But it's done, and so you will get where you need to be.

    There will be plenty of time in the near future for training and races but get well first. Everyone around here has the flu. It seems incredibly widespread this year. Take care!!

    You are absolutely right; you must to what is best for your body. If you don't feel 100%, then you should give it a rest. Good luck with the doctor and get better soon!
