I know while training for the Triple Crown Series and the Garden of the Gods 10 Mile race there will be setbacks. I do not know how many there will be or when they will happen but I encountered my first one.
This past week went nothing as scheduled. The week started promising with a nice run on Monday. It felt good and I set my schedule. Run Tuesday, run Thursday and then figure out if I was going to run a double on Saturday. It was looking good, an increase in runs and miles.
Monday after my run I remembered hearing that Peyton Manning was doing an interview on a late show. Since my blood is orange I was going to stay up and watch it. Turned out to be a later than usual night for me and boy was I tired Tuesday. I thought to myself that was a heavy price to pay for staying up late but it’s all good because I am a Bronco fan. I will get my run in Tuesday night and feel good Wednesday.
Wednesday came and I still felt dog tired. Then that evening the body aches and chills arrived. My daughter was teasing me that if I fell asleep at the dinner table she was posting it on FB. Thursday was worse and I had to leave work early and Friday was the worst. I couldn’t answer the bell and missed work. There went my training for the week. It was gone just like my energy.
Mission accomplished for team setback. Yes, I went back a few steps but when I had an opportunity to check postings and blogs I was able to see my fellow runners continue their training which was helpful and encouraging. I will be back! So remember keep running my fellow runners because you inspire me. Go BRT!!!!
