Make up yer damn mind

My body has been messin' with me this week. It really couldn't be at a worse time. I'm supposed to be in the final days of my training for the PF Chang's Marathon and the longest run I've done is 16 miles. I don't feel sick in the traditional sense but man am I tired. Lethargic. Pooped. My throat is dry, but not sore. My shoulders are tight, but not in pain. I'm going nuts trying to decide how hard to push my training.

I normally am very resolved to listening to my body and knowing when to back down from training - but sitting here at my desk looking out at the warm Arizona sun is making it very hard not to bust out and get in a quick run.

Though I would prefer NOT to be sick, I just wish my body would make up its damn mind.

  1. You could always come up here and run in the rain. You'd be sick by the end of your training run, and then you'd know for sure to take a break. =)
