Can you believe it’s been 19 weeks of training for this marathon? Part of me is completely surprised by this number! Where did the time go?!?
Today has been such a struggle. The last few days too — I have a running nose, sore throat, swollen glands, and a throbbing head/neck! SUCKS!
Thursday I was achy all over, so I listened to my body and stayed in bed instead of getting in a crappy 4 miles. I went to bed Friday night with the sore throat and thought it was due to talking too much all week long. Saturday morning was a real issue — and I wasn’t able to get my long run in 🙁 I didn’t want to force it and end up miserable — so I’m freaking out that my training is totally derailed!
