During the last three days I’ve followed TheEd’s advice about not running when sick. Even if it hasn’t been an awful cold and I could run without problem he thought it would be bad to risk it getting to something far more worse. And since it’s wintertime and I’m in a long build up period anyway it shouldn’t have a big impact on my fitness (hopefully).
So.. In a way I let my cold hold me back, differently than what I wrote in my earlier post. This is something I need to learn. If I hadn’t got the advice from TheEd I would kept going, which sometimes isn’t good. My experience with myself is that I most of the times can push myself very far and hard without suffering any consequences..
This has been a difficult test for me needing a lot of self control. The running has become like a poison that I need to feel that I’m going somewhere. One day off doesn’t matter much to me, two days is alright, but three took the edge of it all.. If I hadn’t been running today I would be climbing on the walls right now. 😉
Tomorrow it’s christmas. I actually haven’t got any wishes about presents – doesn’t it sound grown up? Well, that’s an effect of having an income and be able to buy the things you want sooner or later. I just came up with one thing I want – another happy and fortunate year with my lovely family, being my beautiful wife and two wonderful daughters and, of course, a smooth delivery of our third child in the beginning of February 🙂
Todays run went well.. Felt a little slow, but else it felt fine.
