I'm bummed. Real bummed!
And I need some advice!
I've been ridiculously sick the last few days. I was going to push through yesterday and run my scheduled 2-3 miles, but I just wasn't feeling up to it.
I missed last weeks 9 mile run. I opted to repeat my week of running this week.
Only. I feel like crizap and don't wanna run.
Today I have absolutely NO VOICE. It is seriously gone.
So that brings me to my dilemma.
I'm afraid I'm going to fall too far behind for January.
I've been hit and miss on the runs I've been able to do the last little bit.
So here's what my running schedule was SUPPOSED to look like for December:
Because I was sick I didn't do the 9 miles on the 7th. My last long run was on the 30th of November. I went 9 miles in 1:44 that day.
Here's what my ideal schedule looks like heading into January:
As you can see I have very little wiggle room before the 19th when the 1/2 is.
So now I have to decide what to do!
If I skip another long run this week....that would be bad, right?
So do I run while I'm sick?
Do I just go as far as I can?
Do I throw the whole schedule out and just push myself the best I can?
How far was your longest run before running a 1/2 marathon?
More than anything, I want to finish the 1/2 feeling strong.
NOT feeling like I had to crawl across the finish line.
Please! Any advice you have, I need! I'm down and out today...worried I won't successfully be ready for my 1/2 in just over a month.
