4:30 or Bust: A Quest for Marathon Mediocrity

Still sick, but getting better

Been down for the count most of the week.  No, not the Swine Flu (I think!), but just your garden variety head cold and nasal congestion.  I foolishly didn’t let it stop me from playing in our opening night softball game on Wed (we won!) so my recovery is a little slower than anticipated.  As a result, I’ve done nothing, repeat NOTHING, all week in terms of swimming, biking or running.  Need to get another day of rest, and then back on the proverbial horse  starting Sunday.

Next challenge is that my mother-in-law, who picks up and babysits my 7 year old every day after school and evenings when necessary, is on vacation for 2 weeks.  So, my wife or I need to pick up the slack after school or in the evenings, which means I’m going to lose my primo exercise windows.

Guess between full-time job, 2 kids, weekend house, and illnesses/injuries, there is always something waiting around the corner to eat into the training schedule…
