Sick

What do you get when you cross Niagara Falls and a nose?

Me.

Well actually, that was Sunday. It's slowed down since then, and now I'm into that dry hacking phase, where all my muscles hurt.

I feel like this happens before every big race that I train for. You might say it's from tapering, but it really happened overnight, just after that 6 mile run Saturday night. The truth is, it is the season to get colds, and I do work in a hospital. But it still sucks.

So anyway, after my last run on Saturday night, I didn't have anything scheduled until today. I was planning on running a little Monday, but because of how I felt, I held off. I didn't feel great today either, but the weather was pretty nice for running, and I was only scheduled for 4 easy miles. I ran by myself, and stayed pretty consistent. 9:45 miles throughout. (Actually the first mile as about 10, but I was stuck at a light for about 15 seconds.) I'm always amazed at how I can naturally get into a rhythm. Tomorrow I'm scheduled for a 30 minute tempo run. I don't want to push too hard this close to the race, but I will try to up the speed for the middle 10 minutes.

That's it for now. Hope you're all feeling better than me.
