This is such a bad time to be getting sick! While I was typing my blog and some other things last night, I could just feel the scratchy throat start. I sort of expect to get a little bug after my race because of the energy expenditure but getting sick before the race was definitely not in the plans.
I did not do my run this morning and I'm not sure I'll do tomorrow's. I feel a touch guilty about it but I think it is better in the long run (no pun intended). There is that little voice in the back of my head telling me that if I don't run this week it will really hurt my performance. That may or may not be true but I do know that if I do run, it will definitely hurt my performance (if I still feel the way I do now.
I'm pretty bummed about the whole thing but I will not let it get me too down. I have a race coming up and I will be the best I can be. That is all we can ever ask of ourselves.
