Woke up this morning quite early and feeling totally rubbish - sore throat, achy with a bit of fever. Quick look at my blackberry and I saw an email from my coach who was trying to lift my morale (I was complaining to him about the weather yesterday morning). I saw that email and thought "Maybe I can train today after all. I can go for a run and see how I feel". But I wasn't feeling great. For 20 mins or so I has this battle in myself - my reasonable self saying that I should rest and get better soon and my other (maybe stupid) self thinking I could still go out for a run. Finally I went back to sleep and woke up at mid-day. Holy cow, I slept for 12 hours. I cannot remember when was the last time I slept that much. Never???
So here I am after a day of no training, drinking all sorts of hot drinks and feeling sorry for myself. I am hoping I will be able to go out for my long run tomorrow but something is telling me it won't happen. We shall see.... I am such a bad patient!!!!
On a more positive note, I have been chatting to my coach about taking a week off work in April/May and putting in a good week of training. He suggested going somewhere nice and warm. Last year Shaun and I went to Boulder but that was at the end of June. Because CDA is in June I need to do this earlier in the year. I am thinking about many things but still have not made any plans. All suggestions are very welcome - I really need your help guys.
Hope you are all having much better time than me.
