Like Rain on your Wedding Day

4 May 2011

It isn’t ironic, I don’t think, that I have a cough 4 days before the race after 9 weeks of pretty good health. It is, however, really annoying and something of a running cliche.

Attempting a 5 mile run with a 20 minute tempo section today, I only managed 4 and 10. Each of those miles was punctuated by several stops to cough, spit, blow my nose or clear my throat. It wasn’t a good day for pavements. Or passers by.

I have 3 days to get it all out of the system, or sunday’s race will be long and slow. Tomorrow I’m breaking out the wasabi peas.
