I did another “regular” run of about 5 miles today, and felt OK physically, though I still have a bit of congestion in my chest from the respiratory stuff that has been going on. Still, it’s a little reassuring that I can run my normal run twice in two days and feel reasonably good about it.
And yet, it’s holiday time, and I’m leaving in two days (the day after Thanksgiving) for Phoenix for my Mom’s 90th birthday party. I’ll be there for 6 days, and plan to run while I’m there, so I hope I can keep up my normal runs every couple of days, and maybe run a little farther to re-start my training regimen.
I guess it’s not likely that I’ll be able to run the marathon in February, but at least things don’t look as bleak as they did a few weeks ago.
