It's now one week out from the Mothers' Day Classic. I should be on the tail end of my training, preparing to run the race next week.
Instead, I still have a nasty cough and have found that trying to sustain a pretty brisk walk will put me out of breath (and send me coughing and spluttering) pretty fast.
So... I'm pulling out of the Mothers' Day Classic. I'm totally gutted, as I was really looking forward to giving it another go this year.
I'm going to take a decent break from any hard training and try to get myself better. I'll be back... watch the runupdate space.
