Taper sickness

Night before last I had a dream that I was running the marathon in New Zealand. The weather was perfect and I was running well. That’s all I remember. I woke up and had a horrible run. I ran a mile and then turned around and walked home. I told Andrea I must have run too hard in my sleep.

Last night as I was going to sleep my throat had that feeling I get right before I get sick. I rolled over and reset the alarm clock to let me sleep in this morning.

I don't know why but this almost always happens during the taper. It is frustrating since I have been tanking up on vitamin C and trying to get enough sleep and rest and eat well. I feel much better this morning. In eleven days I am running a marathon and I do not want to get sick now!
