Sick Sucks!


I've been down and out with bronchitis. This really sucks! I hate being sick and when it happens right in the critical stage of preparation for your most important race of the year it sucks even more.


But that's where I am and I have to make the best of the situation. The Otter Challenge is only 10 days and some hours away! I will make a final call next week but I still hope to run. I will do some slow test runs this weekend, rest on Monday and then see how I feel after a run on Tuesday.

Let's hope next week I'm all healthy and ready to go!

Have a great weekend!

I also hate being sick two weeks before a race.
You've time, Johann, feel better soon!

Michael said...

Oh no I'm so sorry. I hope you recover quickly and are ready to go.

That's my biggest fear right now. I've just a few weeks from my 2nd marathon, and I'm totally freaked about getting sick...esp now that the weather is changing.

Feel better soon!!

That really does suck! I hope you feel better quickly. Ten days is still a long way off. You still have time. I hope you can use it to rest. Hoping for the best!

What a shame - since you're fit, it's likely you'll get to run!

Man, I know this is so frustrating. And stressful, wondering WHEN you're ever going to feel like yourself! Hope this is the end of being sick!!

It's not knowing f you're going to be well enough in time that does your head in. I hope you get really quick improvement and return to strength.

Glad that you are back running (saw your runs on Dailymile), and hate that you were sick in the middle of training. Thats always such a bummer! Take care.
