I felt recovered enough on Wednesday that I went to the gym early for a 30 minute swim. I was able to cover 1 K in 31 minutes. So it was nice and leisurely. Silly me. In the evening, I went back to the gym and worked on my weight training and stretching. I was planning for an hour and since I finished my routine in 50 minutes, I tried the stairmaster for 10 minutes. On Cassie's recommendation, I'm trying my darnest to try every glute exercise I can get my buns on.
As it turns out, that over indulgence yesterday might have been in poor judgment. I got up this morning to a sore throat. As I'm typing this, the whole body seems to be aching. Hmmm. Cold? A flu? Either way, if these symptoms don't improve by tomorrow morning, I will have to kiss the 21 mile long run this Saturday good bye. Oh well.
