Week's Summary

Despite being sick for most of the week I actually turned in a decent volume.  Unfortunately, most of it wasn't very good quality and it was all about burning up some calories that I had taken on during my trip to the Lost Dutchman Marathon.

As I write this, my cold is a lot better.  However, I am still blowing my nose and I find myself tired a lot.  What I would've figured would be a 2 to 3 day cold has turned into something lasting about almost 3 weeks.  It puts a huge damper on your enthusiasm for running as well as your energy level.

I am still torn as to what to do with my marathon training.  I am looking at the Sand Hollow Marathon down in southern Utah in a few weeks.  I've done that twice before though and it is sandwiched between a bunch of other races and trips.  How far do I want to push my racing?

I suppose I should see how long this cold lingers but right now that is a blip on the radar.  I have some other choices for the March 11-ish weekend as well.  I may just hold off on marathons until the Salt Lake City one in April.  The marathon distance always takes so much out of me but I really find an emotional payoff associated with them.

Weight Loss

Surprise surprise.  I got back from my week-long trip indulging in endless buffets in Nevada and I only gain about a pound or two.  Not too bad.  I am at 184.5.  Time to get it together though.
