This weekend was a training black hole. I am feeling very weak about the whole thing. Sunday was scheduled to be a rest day but Saturday I was suppose to do a 20 mile ride on the bike. This chest cold has really been kicking my tail and I had a slam packed weekend. The ride just got away from me in the middle of everything else that was going on. The good news is that I was able to help my brother-in-law out with a lot of work at the house that needed to be done so they can sell the house and move to MI. I also was able to spend a lot of time with my nieces over the weekend which I love. I will miss them so much when they move to the great white north. Back to the subject (I wander as you can see). When I had failed to get the ride in on Saturday I told myself I would get up early on Sunday and do the ride before church. I passed out hard Saturday night without taking my cough medicine. BIG MISTAKE!!! I woke up at some point during the night and was in an awful coughing fit. Once it let up enough I quickly took that but had to wait forever for it to kill off the coughing. So much for a night a peaceful sleep. Hopefully I will get that tonight. I cannot wait for this chest cold to be gone so I can get back to some hard training. My run still sucks and I can't get a run in without hacking a lung. The bike is doing better and I am feeling pretty good about that. I guess I just have to keep at it and do the best that I can.
What do you do about training when you are sick? Do you slow down at all or just continue training like nothing is happening?
