Well, I guess it proves one of the side effects of higher mileage is that you are, again, more vulnerable to the little upsets. The bug that took 2 of my sons 24 hours to clear took me 3 times that long. Running wasn't even a consideration. In fact, I didn't think I'd be able to run today, but after gingerly stomaching an English muffin this morning, carefully downing some coffee, tentatively taking in a banana, hesitatingly downing a second cup of coffee, and more boldly taking in a fiber one bar, all seemed surprisingly OK, so out I went in the pouring rain. And now I wish I'd packed more food.
Hopefully that's the last disruption of the training season. With three weeks to peak and three weeks to taper, it's time to bear down. The upside of being sick was maybe I caught up on some sleep (30 hours in 4 days is pretty rare, plus even took an even rarer nap yesterday) and now I'm hungry to get back at things and optimize these last few weeks. But first to get the fuel and hydration back on track. Carefully, of course.
