I finally started feeling normal toward the end of the week. I think I lost a good five days of training. Whatever that was, good riddance.
To try to give my body some extra room to heal, I stopped drinking coffee for a few days. Man, did that cause a headache. I only drink about two cups a day, but apparently that's enough to cause withdrawals.
Since I had a few days under my belt of not having coffee, I decided to keep it going for a while. It's been a week and a half now, and I've found I been sleeping better. I don't think I'll every officially quit drinking coffee, but we'll see how long this trend lasts.
The half marathon is this weekend. The five day loss has me worried. I don't think I'll have a problem finishing, but I have a bad feeling I wont be at my best. The goal this year is the marathon, but I really hope the training thus far will kick in and I'll pull out a decent race - we'll see.
Typically this would be a taper week up to the race, but I feel like I need to get a couple extra days in to make up for the crash last week.
If it was an elevation profile, I'd be crying.
