Pathetic Me

I haven't run since Sunday because I've been feeling like crap - headache, lethergic, achy and unable to stop shivering. I half knew this was coming after my horrible run on Saturday - that's usually an omen that I'm coming down with something. It's pathetic - I doubt I could run a 5k right now. I haven't been able to take time off work because I'm so busy, so I just have to suck it up and hope I recover by this weekend. I feel like I'm losing all the fitness and conditioning I've worked so hard to build. I know that's nonsense and it's just the voice of doubt inside my head, but I wish it would shut up.

Last night I went to our first team meeting for the Texas Independence Relay. This is a 203.67 mile, 40 leg relay from Gonzales to San Jacinto this coming March. We have a team of 12 and based on all the banter flying around last night, we're going to have a good time. There are a lot of logistics to work out, but I think it's going to be a fun experience.

Take care of yourself and get well!! You still have a lot more fitness than I do and I'm healthy right now!!

You've been going non-stop for a while. You will be fine if you rest up and get over this bug. You are still going to rock at Rocky.

BTW, if Nancy isn't going are you needing a crew for the nighttime? I'll be available if you want a little help at some of the aidstations.

Let me know if you are up for an easy greenbelt run on Sunday.
