Yesterday morning I tried to run. My legs were great but my lung capacity wasn’t a 100%. At work my boss asked me if I ran and how it went. He said that based on how I looked and how my voice sounded, he would advice me not to run on Sunday. That’s when the insecurity started: should I run or cancel it.
I talked to K., to the hub at home and to some of my blogger friends (thanks sweeties, you know who you are) and with their advice and some thinking of my own I decided to do the following:
Take as much rest as possible and take care of myself. Skip all my workouts this week. I will try another run on Friday to see how it goes and on Saturday I make my final decision.
I’m feeling better and better every day and at this moment I think I will be able to run on Sunday.
Please keep your fingers crossed for me for a speedy recovery so that I’m able to run Sunday’s race.
Easy short run on Monday, details see above.
