After a restful weekend camping, I was ready for my long run. Tiffany and I arranged to meet early Monday morning to knock off an easy 10 mile, however a long weekend of binging beer and s’mores left me in no shape for any running.
At least, I thought I could blame it on the beer. It seems I came down with some viral infection, which bounced around my family. This past week, I have had to put my training, my housework and my bogging on hold and simply rest. I felt exhausted with aches all over, but no other symptoms.
Yesterday, I attempted a light 3 mile run, but I was completely shattered afterward and medicated myself with a 2 hour nap to recover. Today, I am feeling much better but I don’t think I will attempt another run, particularly the 7 mile run I keep putting off. Today’s work-out will include scaling stairs with a mountain of laundry and more sleeping.
Hopefully, tomorrow I will wake up ready to run 7 miles. If I don’t try to do some training soon, I don’t know how I can manage running 15 miles on Sunday. Hal will be so disappointed.
