NOTHING!!! Ok, you probably don’t believe that, but really, I did NOTHING! Thank you to a nice cold I caught, I literally ate soup, slept, napped, drank orange juice, and worked just enough to get my work done. Well, I did walk the dog half-way around the block at least once a day, but that is maybe 1/3 mile total but that just doesn’t count.
I’m trying my best to completely recover from my cold so that I can start running again before my half marathon on January 20th. Oh yeah, that is 12 days away and I haven’t run since last year! AH!!! Nerves are kicking in for sure, but I really hope that even if I haven’t been running too much a healthy body will still carry me to my goal of sub-two hours.
Any advice or thoughts on running while sick?? What is the best way for me to train up until my half?? Right now I’m planning to run every part of the course broken into 3-5 mile sections so I am familiar with it and probably eat good and drink more OJ! I’m looking forward to this next week and getting back on the workout wagon – I really feel out of whack with no physical activity.
