Training fail this weekend.

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?

  1. Pei pa koa is pretty decent cough medicine (from herbal as I remembered), great non alcoholic medicine, some western cough medicine are more effective, but this is non drowsy.
