My head cold is tenacious. I've had it for three days now, and it's still going strong. If anything, it's picking up steam. Of course, the fact that I ran 16.2 miles on Sunday, and yesterday logged 21.3 miles (60 min.) on a recumbent bike plus did a 20-minute session of free weights probably doesn't help.
But I really thought that sleeping a solid 9 hours last night and resting today (that's right! I'm not totally crazy) woud knock out the cold out for good.
But nooooo. I wish I could unscrew my nose and drain it. It's red and raw from my blowing it repeatedly. I somehow don't have any Tylenol or cold & sinus over-the-counter medication with me. Perhaps because I think I'm super-human and don't need no stinkin' meds.
Well, I did find two aspirin in a dark little corner of my toiletry bag. But I took them days ago.
Onward: Tomorrow is my speed workout. I forgot to bring my marathon-training plan with me to Tahoe, so I dont' know what's on the schedule. But 10 or 12 X 400 sounds pretty good. That is, if I feel better. I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but if I still feel crappy tomorrow, I'll postpone the speed workout until Thursday.
