Another weekend sick

by - Monday, January 26, 2009

Ugh I spent this weekend sick again, which means I missed my 17 miler and a few days in the Sexy Six Pack Challenge. I'm so frustrated. I know it's nothing I can control, but it just sucks especially because that marathon is creeping closer and closer and the more my training sucks the more likely it is I'll have to drop to the half. AHHH!

Saturday morning even though I wasn't feeling great I got all dressed to go run because I was at least going to try to get something in. Yea well I made it to the end of the street and was thinking, hmmm this doesn't feel good.

But I kept going and right when it was time to loop around the block I started feeling like hell, so I went back home, got back into bed and slept until like 2:30 p.m.

Sunday wasn't much better.

I had a doc. appointment today and got some medicine so hopefully I'll be in the clear soon.

Also got a shot. Almost passed out again. And damn my hip still hurts.

I wish I had something cheery to write about to balance out all the negativity but I'm sorry, I don't. Crossing my fingers that the medicine helps and tomorrow will be a much better day!

  2. Sounds psycho-semantic. no, jk. Pomegranate juice with blueberry (20 oz a day) and gargle some listerine every day and you'll clear that crud right up.

    you've still got plenty of time to avoid the half drop. Some people say you only need to hit 18 miles once in a training plan. if you're seeing 17 miles with 8 weeks to go(?) you've got plenty of time. i have started to think it's not good to ramp the milage up too soon unless you're trying to hit a specific time.

  10. :( hope you start feeling better soon! better to rest up and get it all out of your system now than drag it out until closer to race day. maybe you'll be able up for a medium-long run thursday or friday to make up for some of the mileage? if not, don't sweat it, and hopefully there won't be any roadblocks for this weekend's long run.
