I'm still sick...as in, I can't tell the difference in how I felt on Monday versus today, Friday. Ugh. I'm on penicillin for my strep and a variety of other things to help me feel better. I think physically I feel less drained than I have this week, but my nose and throat are still quite a beast to be dealt with. Here is where I start to feel frustrated, since I had a week off from training since we were in Colorado, then, I got sick--so of course my mind starts to calculate the "last time I ran" and so forth.
It's times like these when I see people running and I get jealous! Me, jealous, of someone running....*that* is truly something!
Anyway, i'm supposed to do a 5K tomorrow, but the weather is calling for some sort of massive storm to hit California so we'll see if running in the rain with my throat is a great idea. I'm channeling my coach's thought on that annnnnnnd, i'm gonna assume Amanda would be saying "stay home and get better," however, I have this itch where I *really* want to see how I do in the 5K. I am just hoping my throat calms down long enough.
Obviously, i'm sure some people would say they wouldn't do their best while they're sick. For me, I can't remember the last time I signed up for a race and didn't do it. Something about "following through," etc.
I'll see how I feel tomorrow morning! Happy Friday!
