Livermore Ahead

Livermore is here!

Well, in 3 days more accurately.

Which is great as I have been looking forward to it since November.   Something about it just piqued my interest post Golden Gate Half and held on to it.    So when I got the chance to run it through Bibrave, I was stoked.


Now, the downside.  I’m still sick.😷  I haven’t run since last Thursday.    I called in sick on Monday.  From all the coughing I’ve been doing, I should have abs by now.   Abs, where are you? 😛

Also the weather is predicting rain.  Where is California weather?   Actually, it changes every time I check my weather app, maybe I should just stop looking?

So all plans I had have changed.     I am looking forward to a hopefully fun run.   I want to enjoy the scenery of a new place and take it all in.    My mother is going with me like usual and I’ve already told her this will not be a speedy one by any means.   This is going to be a taking time to enjoy the view kind of race.   Sometimes those are the best kind right?😀

Ever run with a cold?

Any anti coughing tips for an asthmatic with a deviated septum?

  1. I found that using my inhaler before my races helps. I’m not asthmatic, but I do have a lower breathing capacity. Lol I hope your cold goes away soon and have fun at your race!

    • Lately, it seems like I’ve built up a resistance to my inhaler. It will be with me though. I also haven’t used my daily inhaler since I got sick- I didn’t want to get it all germy. 🙂

  2. I’ve ran races with a cold, and even with a fever. For me, I just go in with much lowered expectations and try to have fun. Other than dropping out, it’s pretty much all you can do is try to have fun! Good luck!

    • I ran Golden Gate with a fever. It wasn’t bad, I was slow but it wasn’t horrible. I’ve never run when coughing this much though, that’s what has me concerned. Fingers crossed!

  4. Aw, I really wish that I had a good tip for you but this might just be one of those “hate yourself while running, love yourself after” kind of races, hopefully not. Typically (after a good coughing/sneezing fit) I feel better after running while I have a cold. I wish you the best, keep your mind on the finish line and don’t forget to reward yourself afterwards, you’ve got this!

    • I went for a test run hoping it would feel like that- that running would make things better. It didn’t make things worse but I didn’t feel better either. But 2 miles was also very different than 13. I just told myself slow and easy, no pace goals were going to be set and they didn’t need to be.

      • I’m sorry that it didn’t go as planned but I like your mindset. I’m sure that you’ll still end up enjoying the race, not every one needs to end with a PR… And that’s kind if what makes PRs so special.
