Getting sick sucks!

Friday, May 04, 2012

I've been following my marathon program to a T for 11 weeks now and right in the peak of my training I come down with a sinus infection and an ear infection in each ear! Talk about frustrating! This is my first marathon and I want to be completely prepared for it and this sickness has put a dent in my perfect training plan. I haven't ran all week and I should have ran 40 miles this week :( I am not going to let it get me down though. I'm on day 2 of antibiotics and I'm starting to feel a bit better. I just want to be 100% healthy and back on my training plan. I'm going to ease back into my training and not overdo it because if I do then I might delay my healing. I haven't ate well all week either but I've been eating healthy today and I'm focusing on getting better. I'm just glad I didn't come down with this at another time, like the week before my marathon or something. I'm still a month out from my marathon so I have time to recuperate for it. It's just hard to deal with this setback but that's life! "Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it" ~Charles R. Swindoll
