The sad irony of being forced to rest because of illness is that my legs feel amazing right now and I just want to run.
But I can't breathe, my voice is completely shot, and whatever hellish cold I have isn't waning in the slightest. I'm even going so far as to take tomorrow off - which is truly a sign of how poorly I'm feeling, because we all know teachers hate to miss work.
(Seriously, it's more difficult to write sub plans than just tough it out, but trying to teach today with literally no voice was not an exercise I want to repeat tomorrow.)
I'm thinking the half this weekend is going to be a bust.
It's funny...I'd planned to do the full, then had to back down to the half...and now nothing. As my mom said when I spoke to her Tuesday, maybe this race just wasn't mean to be. I'll find a December or January half to run, but I'm really disappointed that I'm going to have to miss this one.
For now, I need to focus on getting better.
