To workout or not to workout

Do you work out when you are sick?  What if you have a marathon in less than 3 weeks and you REALLY want to do well?  What if you feel soooooo much better on drugs?  Are you really better?  (:  This is the boat I am in.  I’ve got a head cold or maybe a sinus infection.  I don’t like to take time off.  I want to run fast this week.  I have an 8 and a 12 miler to run  and I’m hoping to keep my pace at an 8 or under for most of it.  Nutrition and wellness are key here.  SO, I will be eating VERY healthy till the race and striving towards at least 7 hours of sleep each night.  I’m also hoping my order at will help keep me fueled with energy.  I was in need of protein powder and vitamins and I found this awesome deal!

I was talking with my friends today at the park and one of my fastie friends just signed up for the marathon!  Now, I feel pressure to keep up with her (:  She wants to have a goal for the month of September to go off Diet Coke.  I’m going to do it with her, except I’ll go off SUGAR for the month!  30 days sounds better than 100!  Baby steps here.  For the rest of the year I’m going to try a different one month goal.  We’ll see how it goes.

We were also talking about what to wear for the race.  That’s a big deal you know.  We have twinner red shorts and I think we’ll purchase matching tops!  So far there are 4 of us signed up and I think one more will join us!  PARTY!!

Here are the lululemon shorts we have:

I know this is green but I like it (:

I gotta see if this is the same red.

This one looks like the best one.  I don't love black, but it does go with everything!

Looking through the website, I found out Athleta sells TONS of running accessories too such as sunglasses, water bottles, reflector vests, socks, and headbands.  Love that!

Keep moving and plugging along!  It’s all worth it.  Time to go clean my fridge out and figure out dinner before the CREW comes home!
