Why now?

Yep. This girl is sick.

I can't tell whether it's more allergies, or just a cold. I woke with swolen glands as well as a scratchy feeling in my throat that made it hard and unpleasant to swallow. It was nasty. It's weird because yesterday I felt completely rested and better than Tuesday, and went to bed last night with no signs of feeling sick.

Grr.

This being sick business couldn't have come at a worse time. I plan to be out of town this weekend for a fun weekend with my aunts and female cousins at a lake cabin. I then return Sunday and will unpack, do laundry, only to pack again. You heard that right.... I will be heading out of town early Monday morning for a 3 day training for work out of state. It's going to be busy, I just hope I will be able to snip this cold in the butt before it has the chance to get worse!

Being gone for 5 days will definitely put a damper on my workouts... If I'm feeling up to it, I will be heading to the gym for a run in the AM. We'll see. Maybe my hotel next week will have a treadmill... I can only hope!

Get lots of rest. You need to get better if you are going to be on the go so much.

Take care of yourself, get some extra sleep and resist the temptation to train hard for the next few days.
