After all that talk about pushing through murphy yesterday, I just couldn't do it today.
I was excited yesterday afternoon when I felt well enough to get a 4 mile run in. I even pushed myself on time (I desperately want to get better than a 12 minute mile on my long runs) and felt great when the run was over.
Got in bed at my normal 10:30 fully intending on making today a strength/cross training day. I set my alarm to wake me up at 6:15, so I could be to the pool by 7. Then I woke up around 2:30 and didn't go back to sleep until around 5.
Between my stuffy nose and scratchy throat I was miserable. I thought I pushed my alarm back to 7, but apparently not. I woke up at 7:15 and had to bust it to shower/change/get to work on time.
I only made it two hours before telling my boss that I was packing up my swine flu and heading home.
So that's two activities I'm behind for the week. Surely if I have to sacrifice anything on the training plan, those are the two best right?
Hopefully I'll be feeling well enough tomorrow for work...and my 3 mile run.
