As I sit here trying to fight off the effects of whatever illness my body has succumbed to, I reflect upon the thought that perhaps, in spite of this being a time that my running should be going full force, sometimes rest is what is called for.
I do feel a bit uneasy about being this close to Bandera and having to take some time off, but I also know that if I don't listen to the body, it will fail me down the road.
For the time being, I will enjoy the hot tea, comfort foods, and couch time with the family as soon enough, I will be donning those running spats once again and putting more tracks in the dirt.
Up next weekend is a 19 miler on Saturday and the weekend after is Texas Trails 50K. I am planning to change a few things up as far as gear and nutrition goes. These two runs will give me a chance to test out some options before Bandera and Rocky.
Now back to planning our first Vegan Thanksgiving...
