I'm on my second day of antibiotics and I'm starting to feel better. My chest still hurts and I have a nasty cough, but I'm hopeful that it will pass soon. I haven't ran since Monday, haven't cycled since Saturday, and haven't swam since *GULP* March 10th!!! Yep, going on 3 weeks since my last swim. This is NOT GOOD, people!!! But ever since I decided to do the St Louis half, I've been investing a lot more into running than my other events. Once the half is over, I can focus more on cycling and swimming again.
Anyway, today is a COMPLETE day of rest. No working out whatsoever. My body needs to heal. And apparently we have a blizzard heading our way, which is just awesome considering it was in the 80's last week. :\ Stupid midwest. And the Olathe marathon is tomorrow. Nice weather for it. Good luck to anyone running the Olathe marathon!! I'll be in Olathe tomorrow morning for tri practice. Luckily our practice got moved to Bally's due to the weather. I'm not stoked to ride a stationary bike and then run on a treadmill...but I'd rather be doing that than trying to battle the wind and snow.
Anyway, I hope my body will be ready for practice tomorrow. It's just 10 miles of cycling and 2 miles of running. And since it'll be inside, it'll be even easier. Hopefully my weakened lungs can handle all of that. I plan to spend the rest of the day taking it easy. I'll probably take Sunday off too. I really need to get back to the pool....but I don't want to push it right now. I have 3 months left to prepare for the tri, but only 3 weeks until St Louis....so I need to focus on getting healthy and getting my run up to par.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend...and if you have a blizzard heading your way, try to stay warm!!!
