My kids are back at school, meaning they are bringing home germs in abundance again. Both of them had the sniffles and coughs this past weekend, then Lisa began with the congestion, then yours truly. Extra forced rest during my taper with yesterday and today fully off from any training. I'm remaining calm though. I had an excellent build for this race and I'm not going to let a cold derail me. I'll get this out of my system this week - better getting this this week than next week. Time to pound some Nyquil.
