Had to skip the 11-mile due to illness. :( :( :( :( :( :( :( I really wanted to do it. Now I am focusing on resting and taking all the various vitamins, echinacea, garlic, chicken soup I can. Hopefully I will be well enough to do my next small run (tomorrow). I am so bummed. I really hope I don't lose any of the training work I've done.I agree about the continued training K. We're definitely going to have to do something. I wonder if there are any runs in Malaysia to train for. :)
Ok, I'm back! I finally did another run today. I tried to go back to the scheduled amount (4miles) and my most recent pace (13.5 - 13 minute/mile) but I'm still sick, so I decided to take it a little easy. I cut it short, only 3 miles, but my pace was still decent. I've been off since what, Thursday? Missed a major run. And I still managed a 14-minute mile. Course the stupid semi-functioning Nike+ doodad told me I'd recorded my personal best for the mile even though my personal best was 13. And several times when I actually did do my personal best in the past it told me nothing!I have to go get some Nike+ shoes maybe. I badly need good shoes anyway, and the Nike+ thingy is failing to register a little too frequently. I have to wear thick socks and put the thing in just the right spot in my shoe. Well, I think I have proved that this device works for me, so I should just plunk down the change and get the shoe the device was made for instead of doing this cheap hack.
You know, another thing I've noticed about the Nike+ system... there are often dicrepencies between my iPod, iTunes, the Nike+ website, and the little thing I put on our blog that shows my last 5 runs. Like one may tell me I dida 14-minute mile and another says 14'10". Annoying.
Ok I am just talking with myself now. I'm going to go shower and thereby wake up my sleeping boy. Thus will begin my hectic day.
