Noon: 10.3 miles, averaged 9:16. HR 144.

Felt pretty good. I was going to run again, but ended up taking a nap and had to start dinner when I got up. HR coming down slowly. I imagine part of that is sickness dehydration. Should know by the end of the day tomorrow what the revised racing plan is.

Feeling a bit better overall. Tried making revised racing plans while I ran. Should be able to get out on the bike this weekend.

PM: 10.3 miles, averaged 9:04. HR 152.

Still somewhat sick but on the way out I think. Better day overall. Had to get some miles in. Felt generally okay. HR very elevated, but that was to be expected. Cool and lightly rainy, but not unpleasant. Saw the deer for the first time since last fall.

Hit the 1000-mile mark for the year. Previous PR was April 1, 2016, which was actually a terrible year for running (other than a 5k PR). If I ahdn't gotten sick I would have hit it around March 8-10 I think.

Doing some resuffling/strategizing for the spring marathon. Not sure what's going to happen. I could run a marathon in 5 weeks, but it will be disappointing I am sure. There's another race in Traverse City 4 weeks from my target race, so that's a possibility. I might just scrap the marathon and sharpen up for a shorter race.

Looking forward to getting on my bike.

Sickness mostly gone, but slightly lingering. Spent almost all day in bed as I have slipped back into a depression. Marathon plans are up in the air at this point.

Somewhat better. Congestion is breaking up a good bit. Lots of sleeping. Pretty miserable.
