I know I have to step up my training to prepare for my first 100 miler this summer: San Diego 100. I finally started running before work, which means getting up at 4:30am. I've also started double days on my days off, running once in the AM and once in the PM. While I miss my single long runs on my days off, I am able to recover a lot faster and log more miles with these double days.
I wonder if running my first 100 mile week has anything to do with me sitting here sick? I hardly get sick, maybe running more and being around lots of kids with viral respiratory infections got the best of my immune system. I hated calling in sick for work today... but when I don't feel like getting off the couch I probably shouldn't be taking care of critically ill children.
