>General Running>Missed runs due to illness
I have missed the last 8 days of running because my husband was out of town and then my 2 youngest (5 & 1) came done with strep throat and the day they are feeling better....it's my turn. I'm hoping tomorrow or the next day I will feel up too some kind of run. I was up to 3-4 miles 4-5 days/week. I'm hoping I haven't lost all my progress
The first few days back will probably be a bit hard. If you're on a plan maybe you should consider dropping back a couple weeks and starting out slow. Your fitness will probably drop a bit but it will come back quickly as well. These things happen. Don't let it bother you.
What's lost is lost...just pick up where you left off and tell yourself that perhaps you needed some extra rest anyways. Who knows, it might even be true.
2013 goals: Kick some arse. Moreso than 2012.

I'm crossing my fingers for tomorrow! Thanks for the input!
Completed my first half marathon 2:09:04!!!
Well I made it 2.5. I'll take it!
WTG! It really doesn't take very long to regain that fitness. To make running a lifelong goal you just have to accept that there will be down times. Glad you're feeling better and back on track!
All young people feel boxed in, but what you do with the wiggle room that you have, will define who you become.
