TURD = Totally Unscheduled Rest Day.

Today is a TURD. I was supposed to wake up and run 20 miles with Pigeon today but instead I am in bed with no voice, a sore throat and a nasty cough.

All week my body has been screaming at me to "slow down" but I didn't listen. All of my runs this week have had zero energy, pep and zip. I just thought I was not getting much sleep but instead my body was fighting this cold and the cold has won. I am one sick trailmomma.

This unexpected turn is making me a little nervous about next week's 32 mile run on the Western States Trail. My last long distance was 18 with Pigeon about 3 weeks ago. Nice and easy will be my mantra next week.

Tomorrow is the Peanut's toddler dash and our 5K. Looks like I might be walking that if things don't improve today.

Why does doing absolutely nothing feel so weird?!!

What!? My momma is actually sitting still today?!!

  1. Hope you get to feeling better soon. Hopefully the nice long break from long runs will find you feeling fresh when you run Western States!

  2. I hope you feel better soon, Pam :)
