It’s no secret I’ve had my fair share of injuries but I’ve done really well dealing with them and running some pretty high mileage. However, I’ve also had a sinus cold, stomach flu and now some other cough cold thing that has not only kept me from running since last week but I have also completely lost my voice.
Maybe I should just change this blog to a new name “Running While Sick and Injured.” However, isn’t being flexible with your running plan part of the journey. Learning how to “roll with the punches” and make changes as you go.
Hopefully, I can start running again in a day or two. I’m waiting for this cough to knock itself out of me and then I will be back to running. Until then I’m doing lots of squats, push-ups and sit-ups.

So while I have been sick I did miss my 20 miler. However, I am hoping that I can squeeze one in during the week if I feel better soon. Fingers Crossed.
Despite being sick, I did make it to Cokeburg PA to perform with my Croatian group Zumbercani. Sorry no video since I can’t take video while I am playing. You’ll just have to deal with this picture after we ate 2lbs of lamb and drank a bunch of beers. I thought drinking would kill my cold germs.
