So, yeah I pushed WAY too hard. And felt like junk immediately afterwards.
It's now been a week and I feel slightly better, but still not even close to 100%. I'd say maybe 40-50%. Energy is better, but not back. Congestion is less but still present. I've gone through about 3 boxes of tissues and a roll of TP because I ran out of tissues, who knows how many cups of green tea, and seen every episode of Criminal Minds played back to back to back on A&E for the last 72 hours. The only positive thing that happened and brightened this dark period in my training thus far for 2013 - I got an email on Saturday or maybe it was Friday who knows, but anyway I got confirmation that I will be running the Mount Washington Road Race this summer!!! So, on June 15th I will check off #24 on my list!
