guys. i'm in trouble, seriously. there's no way i can train for this race while working! i came home yesterday close to 8ish, with every intention to go to the gym after dinner. but by 9pm i was totally down for the count. why--it's a few things. 1. i am not used to working full-time. the last time i worked full-time was july 2006. 2. this cold is still not fully gone! do colds last almost 2 weeks? i've never had a cold go this long. this is outrageous. it's really making me feel fatigued. 3. i haven't been able to sleep well lately--probably because of a combination of 1 & 2.
i guess i'm walking this race. i know it's a good thing that i started work earlier than expected, esp. because only a small percentage of my class has been asked to come work so far. i guess i was just really looking forward to being consistent with this training and running a race successfully. i'm still going to keep trying but i know it'll be almost impossible to really stick to the training plan and i'll just have to do the best i can.
on the bright side, because i worked so hard for THREE FULL DAYS, i bought myself a nice bag. if this keeps up it's gonna be a very expensive habit. but i deserve it.
