So it’s December 27th and I haven’t run since December 23rd. That generally wouldn’t make a blog post because I usually don’t fret over an extra couple days rest – especially around the holidays. But if you read my blog post around my 2012 mileage quest, you know that I’m hoping to finish off 2012 at 1400 miles. It all seemed very feasible when I wrote that post. And then I became one of the cool kids and picked up “the cold”.
After over a year with no colds or flu or any other ailment, I awoke on Christmas morning to the sore throat, sniffles, chest congestion, ear ache, fever, and general malaise. Groovy.
|Who invited them to Christmas??|
What I find ironic is that I remained super healthy throughout the past year of the hardest training ever, my longest training runs, 4 marathons +, and of course, my longest race to date. And now that I’m in more “relaxed” mode, BAM, I become a germ target. So I guess I just need to find another 50 miler to train for. Clearly, relaxing is my kryptonite.
OK, I’m not really going to sign up for another 50 miler (right now), but I am still gunning for my 1400 miles! 11 miles to go…wish me luck J
