I've been pretty sick since Saturday evening so I haven't run since Saturday morning. I felt it coming on Friday afternoon. I guess that explains why I was having trouble keeping my HR down on my run Friday.  I woke up feeling much better today so I did a very slow 4 mile trail run. I had to keep it way slower than normal to keep my HR in the 130s though.  I'm glad the sickness happened this past weekend, not this weekend or the next. I think I'll be back to 100% by race day on the 27th.

I'm still trying to get my legs back under me as I recover from the flu.

First I did a slow short warm up jog, then I jumped rope for 10 minutes and followed it with 2 150 m stides.  I repeated that 2 more times for a total of about 30 minutes jumping rope and 6 strides.  Finally I did a short cool down jog.  Total running was about 2 miles.

5 really slow miles out keeping my HR in the 130s.  I'm obviously still not 100% because I had to run about 9 minute miles to keep my HR in that range.  Then I turned around and ran back at mp averaging 6:57 which actually felt pretty good.  That will be my last run of any consequence till raceday.  I'm heading out of town with my sweetie after lunch today for the weekend for a little R & R.  Hopefully I return back on Monday feeling 100% normal again.
