I have been sick for the past couple days and can barely walk without coughing. Needless to say, Hill Night #2 was brutal for me tonight. This time, we alternated between running 30 seconds and walking 30 seconds in a loop up and down the hill for 14 minutes. It might not sound like a long time, but it felt like forever. With being sick, I kept trying to breathe properly while running without coughing. I had to walk through the running part a couple times so I could avoid a coughing fit. It was so frustrating for me tonight. Let’s just say that I’m very glad I had sunglasses on so people couldn’t see the tears in my eyes. I want a re-do of tonight when I’m not sick. The one positive is that I’m glad I went. Even though I was sick and couldn’t run full out, I still made it up the hill a few times.
Next week HAS to be better than tonight was. No, it WILL be better than tonight was.
