setbacks happen.

like last year, when i sign up for a half-marathon and start training, only to find out that i would be having abdominal surgery 2 months before the event and couldn't run for 6 weeks after surgery.  it stinks, but i coped.  i changed my goals to walking it instead of running it.  after all, it was out of my control.

unlike last year, my setbacks this year have been more mental than physical.  skipping a long run because of laziness.  shrugging off a short run because of business.  pretending it doesn't matter if i don't log the miles.

it does.

this last week, i have been down and out with a cold.  the whole week.  mentally, i have been chomping at the bit to get outside and run; physically, my body is betraying me.  it makes me wonder why i allowed myself to slack off when i was feeling well.  why didn't i take advantage of that time?


  1. Hate spring colds! Hope you feel better soon!

  2. thanks kathy. it is day 11 of not feeling well, and i am so ready to be feeling better. the worst of the congestion and coughing has cleared up, but i am still not back to running yet. spring colds = yuck!
