It is just over a month until my half, and I've yet to run more than 4.5 miles. I feel like I'm in big trouble. I had a plan to catch up on the miles. I had enough time. I was just starting to get into it when I got sick again last week.

My daughter came home with back to school germs and passed them on to me. It started out as just a cold and I kept running through it, but it seems to be getting worse. In the last few days, it's moved into my lungs, making running impossible even if I felt good enough to go.


And then I added another thing to my already full plate. I volunteered to coach soccer this fall. I'm going to have to seriously look at my priorities and activities before too long and decide which stay and which go because I can't do them all. Just trying to schedule everything this week between working, coaching duties, girl scouts, homework, running, and the other little obligations here and there...I've just taken too much on.

Update on the tracking: I haven't been much if at all, but with being sick I haven't been eating much. I've been mostly into smoothies to keep me going through this.

I just wish I had time to do it all! Sometimes being a single mom is so frustrating.

    You have a full plate but you are not behind! Five miles down for a half is great and you can bump that up to 8-10 and still have a decent race in a month and a half. I hope you heal fast so you can get back to everything!
