Sick days suck

Google Images makes me laugh sometimes…

Today was a bit of a rough day.  I stayed home from work sick.  It all started when I woke up Sunday morning – I felt a bit rough, but I chalked it up to sleeping on the floor followed by 6 hours in the back of a car.  Monday morning also felt a bit rough – I went to work anyway, but by about 2:30 I had to tap out.  Today simply wasn’t going to happen.

I felt bad missing Sunday night’s run.  I felt really bad missing Monday night’s run (especially since Monday night is my weekly fun-pace run with my wife… I like those).  Today now makes three straight days off from training.  Even if my stomach and head aren’t up for a run, my legs sure are twitching.  All day today I kept getting up off the couch  to do something, wanting to do something, and then quickly sitting right back down.  The mind is ready to go.  The mind is ready for the final few weeks of push before the race.  The body, however, is simply not up for it.  Here’s hoping by tomorrow I’m ready to get back out there or else I’m really at risk to lose all the great progress I made last week.

I did make the most of a bad situation though – it’s been a long time since I’ve had a good Star Wars movie marathon!
