I’ve been back for Phoenix for a few days but I’ve had the most horrible cold ever and haven’t had much to blog about. Before I whine about that, let me talk about how awesome my trip was. I’m sorry for the super picture heavy post:
I wish I could break down how much fun the trip was – even working 12 hours a day wasn’t so bad when it’s surrounded by baseball heaven. It was brutally hot though. No dry heat – it was humid and about 106 degrees every day. I was completely delusional thinking I’d a) have time to workout and b)be able to handle the heat.
I’m a little bit freaked that I haven’t run in about 2 weeks. I was on my feet constantly in Phoenix and walked about 3 miles a day but I haven’t been able to run since I’ve returned because I caught a horrible cold on the way back (from my seatmate who looked like Ryan Reynolds but 15 years older). I know I have plenty of time before Virginia Beach (which is on 9/4) but I can’t help freaking out a little. I’ve had horrible experiences running with colds before and I know it’s smart to wait it out a few more days to avoid making myself feel worse… but I miss running so much.
Have you ever had to take an unplanned break from training? How did you handle it?
