With everything else going on in my life, we have had a week full of illness. I can deal with my runs being sidetracked by other things in life, but illness standing in my way drives me crazy. There's no way to avoid it. You can't get up early to fit in a run. You can't schedule a double to assure you will fit in the miles. If you don't have the energy or stamina, you simply just can't do it. Boo.
Little Diva had a high temp of 102.2 for Super Bowl Sunday, which allowed me and the munkins to have a lovely three hour nap in the afternoon (and missing the first half of the Packers in the Super Bowl -- oops!). The munchkins had running noses and terrible coughs all week and still do. I came down with it on Tuesday and missed work much of the week .... as well as my workouts this week. Little Diva, Little Dude and I even slept for twelve straight hours the other night. I napped several times during the week when I wasn't with the kids and I even took a nice bath for the first time in over seven years! I guess there are good things that come with being sick. I guess.
Enough complaining. I have 16 more days to get in 80.4 miles. That's about 5 miles/day. Can I do it? Yes, I can. Not the scheduled miles I had planned .... when I planned them .... but I will run them!
