This rots.

Still not myself.

Fever is gone after 2 days, but still not 100%. HAVE to go to school today and sludge through. Ugh. Am visiting doc later.

May have to reasses my half mary goals. Ugh. I hate to do that, but I'm going to miss my 14 miles with 6 at race pace this weekend, and I don't know if I can squeeze it in next week after school with these AP tests looming over my head. And I missed my splits last weekend, although I know it's probably because I was starting to get this nastiness.

To top it all off, work is nuts. Next week, I'll most likely be going in early, working through lunch with kids, and staying later.

Maybe instead of a 5 minute PR, I just shoot for a PR.

It just is frustrating because I feel like I was trucking along and doing SO well. Maybe my body will surprise me here, but I don't know. This is supposed to be fun, and I want it to be fun. TriShannon will be here and that's fun. Maybe I shouldn't try to do too much here. A small PR's just as good as a big one, and there's always half mary's I can try later.

This week rots.

Tac has been under major flu (last 3 weeks!) just now recovering.

Amazing how frustrating it is when your trying to train/race isnt it? Almost super stressful...maybe tac's a wimp.

Hope you feel better quick!

I hear ya sister! it's frustrating when you've put in so much work and effort, and you're right on track for your goal (you know, PR... qualifying for boston... whatver), and then your body revolts against you.

I'm going through that right now. it sucks. but you just have to stay positive and reasses your goals. there will always be other races.

(and I bet come race day you'll totally surprise yourself with how well you do. you rock that five minute PR, girl!)

I hope you feel better soon.

I know you are a person who sets goals and works really hard to make them and I know you are a person who gets really frustrated when she misses the mark BUT - I just wanted to make a teeny suggestion. Maybe this race could just be your "I'm back!" race without the pressure of a PR??? Maybe? Just a thought because you are back and you have done a fabulous job of getting back in shape so I think you deserve to celebrate everything.

Your body may or may not surprise you but your mind definitely will. You'll be in a totally different head space and you'll PR without breaking a sweat.

It's a long season. Get this all out of the way now. :) I've been right ith you - been sick on and off way to much early in the year.

triguyjt said...

kick that sickness in the butt and then reasses the goals...

if you p.r. by ten seconds, that will be cool. you will still be improving, despite sickness etc....

thanks for the tip on ed finishing arizona...i will check it out...

have a great weekend

Feel better, Sara! I'd run the race anyway. You never know, you could PR anyway, and if you don't, what a great excuse!
Good luck at school with the AP stuff. Nothing like writing sub plans at 2:30 a.m. I feel your pain.

Enjoy the day. Let it play out as it will. If you've got it in you, you will know. You're right by the way, a PR is a PR, no matter how big or how small.
