My breathing wasn’t so bad during the run itself, but afterwards it took a long time for me to stop coughing and start breathing again normally. I’m taking this as a sign and scaling back my run for tomorrow. I’ll swap my build week this week with my recovery week next week. This works out well anyway because I already missed one run this week from being sick.
It doesn’t help that it was 1 degree celcius outside this afternoon with 41 km/h winds. Brutal! This photo adequately represents my trepidation for the impending chill:
Check me reppin’ The Right Shoe (thanks Caitlin!) and the BMO Vancouver marathon.
