Not Racing the Race

I have a 10K Race Sunday.
I am still sick.
I am so tired of it.
I took Mucinex all week.  That stuff is powerful.  It did help with
chest congestion so that is better at least.

I ran Saturday to Thursday.  6 days in a row, most of them slower than my normal pace.  Yesterday was a little better but I don't feel ready for a race.  I am going to run it for sure but I might not "race" it.  AGAIN (that's what happened at my last race).  I know it is not the end of the world but it sucks a little.

My goal race is my next half marathon on June 2nd.  That is the one I want to do well at.

I am looking for a race in Quebec while we will be there this summer.  So far no luck.  I don't get it.  We have a really long winter. I mean REALLY long. So there should be plenty of races during the summer months plus I will be there for 2 Holidays!

3 more weeks until these 2 are out of school

Aw, man, I hate to hear that you're still feeling sick. :( Low-pressure race now, though, I guess.

I'll be pulling for you June 2. I'll be needing something to distract me from the bike hell I'm in that day. :)

Sandra said...

Awe! Hope you feel better soon!!

I hear ya about Canada! Hardly any races and even less bling!! I would love to get some more races going up here!!

Did you check There are some races listed on there for Quebec - guess it depends where and when! Good Luck!!

Emz said...

Sorry you are still sick. :(
Not fun.
I'm happy you can still run it. :)
Enjoy it.
It'll be a great long practice run for your June 1/2. :)

Very wise! Yes, take is easy. Don't let your competitive spirit get in the way. You need to get better.

I hope a race materializes in Quebec, too.

Get well! You know the drill: chicken soup, Vitamin C, hard liquor.

Ugh - feel better! You are wise to take it easy and try to enjoy it.

Dangit, I can't believe you're still sick! Bleh! Don't push yourself too much if you don't feel good at the start of the race; racing hard when you're sick and just prolong the illness....and we don't want that! Good luck and have a blast!!! :)

OOH no, feel better soon :(
Last time I raced when I was sick (Richmond Marathon), it was missserable, so I avoid it at all costs!!

Ugh! Hope you kick being sick and soon! I am sending healthy thoughts your way.

kristen said...

That IS a little odd. I think there are a decent number around Montreal in the summer but maybe not Quebec...I hope you find one!

I hope the sick 10K goes at least reasonably well. Good luck!

Don't they say "In the chest, take a rest"? Hope you feel better soon!

Darn those colds but best to rest!!
I am genuinely surprised that there were no spring races out there - keep digging!
I hope you feel better soon!
