I took a week off from running. Okay, I took 8 days off. Terrible I know. I should be punched in the face. In all honestly, last week was an emotional one and I am still sick. Yes, still sick since the day before the 5k... 10 days ago. I went for a run today and my goal was just a measley 2 miles to get back into the swing of training. It went better than I thought (2.5 miles) but I did have to spit out loogies about 5 times. After the run I had some pretty painful coughing spells and my left shin is already hurting. Oy. No one said this would be easy though. I have to keep on going.
I must say that I am glad I started writing this blog. I am also glad I registered for the Rock and Roll marathon and paid all that money to do it. I might have quit all of this running without these thing holding me accountable. No. I wouldn't have. I'm unstoppable. I swear. :) 3 miles tomorrow! Hopefully I can get up to 4 by the weekend!
