2 days till half - and sick again!!!

Thursday, May 23, 2013

I was home sick Tuesday and Wednesday, stomach & headache stuff. So not fun. I literally spend the last 2 days in bed or on the couch! I am pretty sure this isn't what they had in mind when they said to "taper." Along with my head, my entire body now has that I was just smacked down by the flu ache.

I pretty much made myself get up and go to work today, I needed to start moving around, and I knew if I stayed home it would be back in bed for me. So far, so good. I don't feel well - but I am not miserable. Luckily I am reviewing video and training materials, so I can just hide in my office and do my own thing.

Thanks to my new juicer I am feeling nice and refreshed instead of all dehydrated from feeling sick. Fresh juice is a miracle worker, I can't even describe how happy it makes my insides. Now if I could just kick some lingering stomach stuff to the curb I'd be all set. Oh and buy more veggies & fruits to juice up.

Our weather has taken another cool dive , we have gone from nice 80 degree weather back to the rainy 40's and 50's. Race day is calling for 60 and cloudy.

Race packet pick-up is tomorrow. I am behind on getting ready for race day, I have no idea what I am planning on wearing. Although it's really just a matter of choosing something, most of my running gear has been tested pretty thoroughly this past year. I just always panic at the last moment and dress to warm!! Note to self, don't dress to heavy - less is more.

I put the husband on tap for an early morning ride in and the entire family on notice to be at the finish line! Feeling a bit guilty about that - since it will be a hassle for them to get out there, park, and get to the finish line. But after running my 1st 1/2 I know that you should at least get a cheer at the finish line, a hug, and a ride home. (Sides how many soccer games/ basketball/ track meets have I been to this year?!)

I have a nice and easy 2 mile on tap for tomorrow morning. Fingers-crossed the body is ready for Saturday! 13.1 miles X 2 baby.

    I really hope you get to feeling completely better in time for your race. The weather here has done the exact same thing (had to wear my winter coat to work this morning and it was in the mid-80's earlier this week!). But it's supposed to warm up again over the weekend.

    I am so excited for your first 1/2! You better blog the hell out of that thing when you get home!

    emoticon You got this, just try to eat, and drink good foods! 60 is actually decently warm, I would do a tank top with a long sleeve tech shirt (LIGHT) to start, then the shirt can come off and either be tossed aside or tied on the waist. I have run races this way in 50 degrees, so you will definitely not be too cold. I would do capris as well. Good LUCK!!

    Oh my goodness, it's like you're talking about my life! My first half is Sunday and I've had the stomach bug this week, haven't ate a meal since Sunday'll be a looooong race...

    Best of luck with yours..
