Well, it finally happened. I got sick.
It wasn't one of those completely out of comission, lie on your back, out of it, but enough to stop me in my tracks.
The worst part of me getting sick is I get post nasal drip. This prevents me from sleeping, as I wake up throughout the night coughing. On the bright side, I got caught up on my late night television. I am on the verge of ordering every informercial exercise piece of equipment out there.
I especially get a kick out of the guy who has this dance routine on videos which will give you washboard abs.
I guess I like informercials because of being in sales. I never buy any of it, I just like the pitch. Sham-Wow is also one of my favorites. I love that guy.
I guess only running 6 miles in the last 7 days will not hurt in the long run, and may actually help. I'm not worried.
The more I think about Ice Age 50 and Kettle 100, the more I think that Larry's 100k in April is a good idea for a training run. I am just concerned that this would require forging an icy river, chest deep, at 3am.
The timing of this race works well, and would only require a few super long runs in March.
My only obstacle at this point is work. I will be on the road 4 out of 8 weeks in Feb and March. I don't do well with training and traveling. I guess I have to suck it up and deal.
Tomorrow crosses that winter hump into February. I am very happy that we are almost to March.
