I am so angry this week.

It feels like I haven't run in two weeks.

The reality is I've run once this week - it was a full training run. Last week I ran 5 times. At least two of those were training runs. So I'm blowing a molehill into a mountain.

It's felt like getting sick has knocked me right off my training.

Okay, it's knocked me back a bit. Reality is my knee hurting a few weeks ago slowed me right down, but it didn't knock me off my training.

Yes, I've lost some due to being so sick.

Yes, my weight has actually gone up since Aug 1.

No, I'm not likely to loose those 10lbs in August I was hoping to.

But that doesn't mean I have to just give up.

My stomach is feeling better.
I'm not as bloated anymore.
My head is slowly clearing up.

And I know running again will help me progress - both with my training and recovering from this.

I deserve the best of me. The best I'm capable of.

Glad You are starting to feel better.
You can hardly come down too hard on yourself- allergies are really beyond our control. And knee injuries need to be handled with care.
You may not lose 10lbs, but you can still lose some lbs. and totally giving up doesn't work- as we both know.
You are a Strong, Determined, and Motivated Lady!
You will get past this, and be that much stronger for it.
