Again, it hit me after my long run last saturday. At first, I felt the sinus pressure, right between my eyes when I was out to lunch. Then, that night, while out at CPK with friends, I started sneezing. I thought it was allergies, but no. Full blown sick. I felt achy, I was congested, I was coughing, all I wanted to do was sleep. I passed it to Camdyn and she got a high fever from this monster bug. She's better, but a week later, I am still sick. I just have the gift that keeps on giving because now I have a sinus infection.
Am I frustrated? Yes. Whenever, I up my miles to double digits, I get sick. This happened in October while I was training for PF Changs. I was out an entire two weeks that time and it made me question whether I could do another marathon. Apparently, I could. I came back and I finished 26.2 again. One of my running buddies, Harvey, has a saying. The only thing he or I have over any first time marathoners is that we know that we can do it. I'm thinking it's the same thing for me getting sick during training: I know I can come back from this sickness and finish San Diego in June.
Training starts again tomorrow. Hopefully.
