Just when I thought I could slowly ramp up my mileage … I was taken out by the flu!!! I spent the whole eat feeling like crap, not moving, and studying for a test and 2 midterms this week ): I spent all week eating nothing but congee and chicken noodle soup so you can imagine how happy I am today feeling better and eating EVERYTHING.
So today I got to thinking…after a week off for my shins, a bit more than another week off for a cold then a flu… I have to rethink my race schedule. I wanted to do a half April 22 in Montreal but at the rate my training is going, that race may no longer be on the table. Yes I have 2 months to train for a half but 2 months may not being enough time to train well for it. Ramping up mileage has been a proven way for me to injure myself and winter running hasn’t exactly treated me well so far.
I hate not being able to do a race I so looked forward to but sometimes it’s for the best. We’ll see how this pans out over the next few weeks but things aren’t looking too good.
So how did your week of training go? Ever had to back out of a race?
