Yikes!!! Everybody's sick!!

I'm not kiddin'! One of my facebook friends says half the kids in her school are home sick! All the hacking and coughing; my Sweetheart is even feeling under the weather but she's still working. Needless to say I'm concerned about catching IT!
So taper week two is here. I took Monday off! I rested! Not the least bit guilty! Even the fantastic weather couldn't get me to run! Today is a different story. I ran! The weather is even better! Sunny, 70ish, breezy. Funny how the taper works? I felt so strong today?! I decided to run 8 miles of W south which is very hilly. I also decided to go with how I felt and I felt like running! I actually set a PR for this route today. 8.05 miles/1:17:30/ 9:37's. It is very hilly, with some steep inclines. I was actually running some low 9's up hill! I'm feelin' good today!
Here are my thoughts regarding the rest of the week. Thursday will be around 8-9 miles with some pick ups unless I go to the track then I'll do Yassos. Then on Saturday go to the track to enjoy some flatland and knock off 8-10 miles. That'll give me a total of about 25-26 miles.
So here's to hoping I stay healthy and to the taper!! Peace!

If we weren't on fall break, I think my whole class would have been sick but thankfully, we can all rest now! Hope your wife is better, sounds like you're doing great. Stay that way!

I'll keep my fingers crossed that you don't catch whatever is going around, or, if you must, that it's a brief bout.

I hope you stay healthy. Wash hands and don't let anyone cough on you!

Yikes! Hope you can avoid getting sick! Keep up your Vitamin C!

Great job on the run! Make sure you save some of that speed for the race. :)

     Oh my! The weather is spectacular! I managed another 30 minute run. So 5 short runs this week. Just kind of maintaining! Hope you are ...
