Half-marathon training
Week Sixteen, day one

I missed a run last week (the long run on Saturday) for the first time since our vacation to Jamaica in week three. I started feeling sick Friday night and woke up with a headache, sore throat and tender stomach. Whatever it was seems to have gone away now, but I felt discombobulated (and yes, a little guilty) all weekend.

So, Monday means two easy miles but today I had to work to find the time. Getting up early was out of the question after drinking wine at Mark and Kathy’s going-away shindig last night. We’re going to see Skyfall tonight so I won’t have time after work. Guess that leaves lunchtime! I originally thought I would hit the gym but then decided to take advantage of the nice weather while it was still here. 75 and sunny, almost a little too warm but a nice easy run through HP capped off with a stop at Whole Foods for some soup to take back to the office (because nothing makes you look cooler while running than a WF bag in your hand). Quick shower and only about 5 minutes late back to the office.

Not that hard at all. If you really want to do it, you’ll find the time! And I feel much better now that I’m back on schedule.
