My 1st real week of training for the Airforce 1/2 marathon in September started on Monday. For a week before Monday, I didn’t run at all because my knee was hurting pretty bad. So, Monday I decided to try to run. It was a pretty hard run for some reason, I mean it was hot and I worked out the day before, and worked 12 hours, nothing too abnormal. But Tuesday, I woke up with a sore throat. I went to work anyway and by the end of the day I thought I was gonna die. Every muscle from my neck to my feet ached horribly, like I was run over by a truck. Chills, sore throat, body aches…sounds like the flu, feels like the flu. Today is Thursday and I still feel like shit. Last night I couldn’t sleep because I couldn’t even swallow my own spit, it hurt so freaking bad. Today, resting. My Nike trainer just reminded me that I have a 4 mile run tomorrow. I already missed a 4 mile run on Tuesday. I’m so discouraged. It seems like every time I get going strong and feeling good and making progress….. BOOM!! Shit blows up, a wrench thrown into the plan, its always something. Its like I keep having to start over all the time over and over again. It doesn’t seem fair.
So, I will rest until I get over this shit and hopefully by Monday I will be up and running again. Two weeks behind on my training and my strengthening, hopefully I don’t get injured trying to get started back up again.
