The week got derailed due to bad cold I'm still battling. I was going to race somewhere on New Years just to get the feet wet again in the faster race situations but got sicker as the week went on. I still got a decent amount of miles in but it pretty much ruined any chances I would have had at feeling good while running anything uptempo so I decided to bag it and wait another week or two for racing season to start. The next week will be interesting as I think I'm still getting worse.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year.
