And, just like that, training for Race For The Cure is put on hold.
I woke up this morning feeling feverish, and with a stuffy nose and feeling pain when swallowing. I decided to take a day off from work to focus on taking care of myself and our baby. Adding work to the mix in my state will drive me crazy.
I have less than a month until the race. I can’t help thinking of my goal of completing the 5k in 30minutes. BUT I know I need a strong and healthy body to complete the distance, regardless of how long it will take me. So I will focus on taking care of my sick self and get stronger.
Another hurdle to overcome!
