something in the air is making my lungs act up this week and i've had to use my inhaler a few times (even while not-running). in addition to the wheezing, whatever funk was wearing me down at the beginning of the week turned into a mucus factory. it wasn't just in my nose either, somehow it would go backwards from my nose down my throat and then i'd almost choke while trying to run and breathe (appetizing, i know).
needless to say i didn't run very hard this week. i had two remaining goal workouts (4mi tempo; 3x1600) for october, but my lungs/mucus factory weren't up for it. i am confident i would have gotten them in otherwise, so i'm not too mad at myself.
