I've had a nagging head cold for 5 days now. It's better today than yesterday but not gone yet. Thus very little running or biking for about a week now. I'm in the middle of a planned rest period for several weeks but I can't help but feel a bit of anxiety when I don't get out for a good run or ride for a few days. My original plan was to keep my training very low key until at least early to mid October but I can tell already that this just isn't going to happen. I'm taking a vacation out to New York to see my family next week and will return to Juneau on September 11th. At that point I'll likely be starting back at 6 or 7 days a week of running and/or biking and/or weight training. I find lately that I'm just not as relaxed and content with my day to day life when I'm not running and/or biking most everyday. just my luck that the one thing I've found that I'm entirely passionate about has pretty near zero opportunity to "make a living" at. Too bad I don't have the interest in medicine or law that I have in endurance racing.
