Double Weekly Workouts September 22-October 10

To say I've been slacking on blogging lately is an understatement. I've been not only busy with work and getting in necessary mileage for Goofy training, but now I'm battling allergies and sinus issues. It could be way worse and I'm so thankful that it's only allergies and sinus congestion. Each day this week I've felt better than the day before. I finally got a medication that is actually helping my congestion and I've had a lot of extra rest to top it off.

With the Baltimore Half coming up in 9 days I'm just trying to get well before then so that I will hopefully have a good race. It actually works out that my lack of running this week is like a mini-taper for Baltimore.

My training runs have been going surprisingly well. I've been mixing up my pace, so that some of my runs are faster than goal race pace. I can tell this is helping my overall endurance.

happy and the run was awesome.

How do you deal with illness during a training cycle?

That's all for now!
