9/7 Warrior Dash 5K (3 miles… I walked a little.)
I ran slightly more miles this week while tapering than the previous two weeks. Ha! I guess it goes to show how unfocused my training has been… sporadic and totally unorganized comes to mind.
Oh well. I’ve got bigger concerns. I woke up yesterday morning with some mild, but not too alarming, cold-like symptoms. Taking in a large amount of muddy, debris filled water/mud yesterday at the Warrior Dash didn’t help things any. Today, the symptoms are a little worse and I kind of feel yucky in general. I’m not sure if it’s allergies, a cold coming on, or the result of said water/mud up the nose. Regardless, I’m treating it as an oncoming cold and am in full-on battle mode today!
Perhaps it’s all just taper brain playing tricks on me.
