Uphill Battle

New attitude. New attitude. New attitude.

Yesterday, towards the end of the day, I started to feel a bit flu-ish. NOOOO! Doesn't my body know that we're training? Getting sick isn't an option.

Being the mature adult running that I am (right...) , I opted to skip my workout in favor of going home and getting some rest. Hopefully this would nip it in the bud before it became a full-fledge flu. It was an inner-battle, but realy, JP would've killed me if I went to they gym feeling sick.

I went home, JP warmed up leftover for dinner and I prompty feel asleep on the couch. From there, I moved to my bed and was down for the count by 9 p.m. Apparently my body needed some rest. Feeling better today, so hopefully that's the end of it.

I HATE missing workouts and I'm really begining to feel like I'm not going to be ready for my race, which is almost exactly one month away. I alreay registered, otherwise I may contemplate finding a later race. Nothing I can do now, but battle back to race-ready form!

I think you made the right choice taking a night off. Although you're in training and want to keep pushing yourself, it may have put you two steps back working out and then feeling even worse. Glad to hear you got some good R&R and feel better.
