Mildly disastrous week 16 recap

Well, I meant to gut it out for a 10-12-mile treadmill run, but in fact I am still with lung & head congestion enough that I called it quits after 6 miles. (Dreadfully hot and disgustingly slow, as usual!)

Week 16 has been a wash - literally! On the bright side, it was the first week of a three-week taper, so it is not the worst timing to have had an awful cold. I am glad I got in my last long run last weekend (although that run is also clearly the straw that broke the back of my immune system).

On the bright side, I saw a particularly prosperous rooster strutting around the parking lot in front of World Gym!

Week 16 recap: a meager 11 miles total, plus one masters swim. Talk about tapering...

But really, you have a strong base, and lose little fitness in little imposed layoff like this one.

No photos of said rooster?

Focus on getting well. Wendy is right. Any fitness you feel you might lose in a week is mostly in your head.
