Should have stayed home!

I have been sick all week with a respiratory virus that went into my chest.  When I woke up this morning I was feeling better so decided to get on the trail,  get my 9 mile run over and done with, then head up to Loveland.  Hubby warned me I should stay home...

I started out and the first mile felt pretty good then, as I was going in to the second mile, I could feel my body shut down. I did not have the energy, or lung capacity,  I needed.  Dang,  I wanted to keep going but knew that it would be impossible to complete nine miles.  I turned around and ended up walking most of the way back.

Now, the hard part will be getting my mental training back where it should be.   Setbacks  do a number on me both physically and mentally.

  1. I'm sorry Shawn you're not feeling good. You have to take care of yourself before you start pushing again. Take care my friend. Blessings.
