Current reality

   The first task of a leader-"To identify the current reality." I tend to be alert to this principle since I am a leader. My taper has had a strange turn!? Monday I decided to set aside as a rest day but got an invite to go golfing....I couldn't resist!! Problem was it was very cool and windy...so Tuesday was planned as an hour run with some HM pacing. I felt lousy!!! Sinus headache....runny nose...fatigue...WHAT!! 100 days of training down the drain? So I rested, began to drink lots of fluids, took some sinus meds...slept good...today I feel quite a bit better! So I ran 4 miles with 2 of them at HM pace! Tomorrow I will run 30 minutes with some HM pace pick-ups and then Friday rest before the race on Sat! Today I decided that my race strategy for Saturday is this- "My body is the horse and my brain the Jockey!" It is a race after all! :) Have a blessed day! Peace!
