Half-Marathon Prep: Too sick to run

Saturday, February 09, 2013

My training just got sidetracked by the bug that's floating around. My daughter went to a sleepover last weekend and bingo, two days later she was sick. (Life lesson to be drawn from this: prohibit daughter from socializing until she is 30...). Followed in order by my wife, and now me. While this makes for a cozy shared family experience, it's not so good for things like working efficiently, or sleeping, or exercising. I somehow don't think I will do my scheduled 11 mile run on Sunday. Maybe I could sleep for 11 hours? emoticon

Oh well. I will try not to let this get into my head. I'm sure I'll recover and get more running in prior to the HM on March 2, even a long run before I back off before the race.

Anyone else out there dealing with cold/flu stuff, and how do you handle the interruption it causes for your training?

Now to crawl into bed... emoticon

    I like your two comments....sleep for 11 hours and not letting your daughter socialize until 30. emoticon
    I know you...you'll be back on track as soon as you feel better.

    I am also feeling a scratchy throat, oh no! I am furiously taking fluids, vitamin C and zinc to ward off the worst of it (I hope). Get yourself healthy, you've been on-plan with HM prep so this shouldn't derail you, although hard on your self-confidence. You might get to the race super-charged from being rested!
