sick day

After too many days of traveling and playing plus working without sleeping enough, my immune system decided to call it quits and let whatever bug I've been fighting off for weeks have its way.  Fortunately, it is just an upper respiratory thing and not the GI stuff that's been going around (or maybe I just wash my hands enough to have avoided that one).  

Kiva and I laid on the couch all day and took multiple naps (she was under the impression that she was sick too) and we are both feeling much better now.

In addition to a cold, I'm currently nursing some seriously sore muscles from Tuesday's adventure.  Sitting around all day is probably not the best way to get rid of them, but at the very least it makes me forget how badly they hurt...until I stand up.  I still claim that it was totally worth it and I would do it again.  

I also finally had a chance to upload the data from my watch.  I've been waiting to check out the elevation profile from the SLO half.  They had the full course elevation profile posted on the website, but it was hard to see just exactly what the half would be like.

I realize none of those hills are particularly large, but there sure are a lot of them, and I'm not good at running hills, but looking at this makes me feel even better about my race.    It truly didn't feel as hilly as it looks.  Perhaps I was distracted by the scenery...
