wordless wednesday

So, this is happening.
If you want to go adjust your finishing time guesses for a massive respiratory infection (+time) and DayQuil (-time due to heart palpitations and general over-tapered jittery-ness), please feel free.  Sigh.

  1. I'll still be ambitious but this probably does cramp your style...or it may force you to lay even lower for a few days and rest you up. Ugh, what can you do when the days are so nice that the allergens come back?

  2. Ugh! Feel better soon but I'm not changing my time because all illness goes away on race day with the shot of adrenaline that comes from the crowds.

    Get well soon my friend....and by soon I mean RIGHT NOW!

  4. Just FYI, when I had my most successful taper swimming in college (like dropping from 2:34 to 2:25 in the 200 back, which is ridiculous), I had a sinus infection and terrible cold until 2 days before the meet.

  5. Feel better! Just enjoy the major taper and you should still be able to rock that race.

  9. Yay! Then I have a chance of actually keeping up with you as I "pace" this thing. My extreme taper officially started 9 days ago...

  10. REST, drink lots of water and maybe eat some green chiles (sinus clearer power!). I'm not adjusting my time goal. ;)

  12. This happened to me right before my marathon! I went to CVS and bought Coldeez and and the "for colds" version of Oscillicum and took them every hour or two (seriously) for 2 days, drank lots of water and tea and then ended up never getting a full blown illness. You can totally shake this!

  14. I read in some book about marathoning that when some Olympian got sick two weeks before his marathon, his coach was overjoyed, knowing this is the only way his runner would TRULY taper. If you're still sick by race day—well, there's nothing you can do about that. But if NOT, I think the rest will be just what the doctor—er, running coach—ordered!

  15. Ugh. Hope you are feeling better soon (as in no more than 2 days from now)

  16. Sorry to hear you're sick :( Hope that it enforces a true taper and you'll kick butt this weekend!

  17. Boo to germs! Be gone! Hope you're feeling better soon. Until then, stay in bed with lots of puppies and ice cream.

  19. I have confidence in DayQuil pushing you to a new PR. Hope you're feeling much better by this weekend!!

  20. Ohhhh no! I hope you get better ASAP! I'm not readjusting my finishing time guess, I'm banking on your cold being gone before the weekend :) Sleep, sleep, and sleep some more!
