Not Dead Yet

So...I've been sick.  Really sick.  I got this sore throat thing with a cough and congestion that won't let me go.  It isn't just lingering, it is kicking my butt.  And yes, it is keeping me from working out, which is making me freak out because the Tough Mudder is only 10 weeks away!!!!

I don't have Kasey's superhuman powers so I have a long way to go to be ready.  Kasey has her goals (she will totally kill it on the monkey bars without question) and I have mine: SURVIVE.  Since the moment I committed to this crazy adventure I have felt nothing but anxiety.  This is a BIG goal for me.  HUGE. To say it is over my head is an understatement. So, basically, getting through it is my equivalent of Kasey's monkey bars.

Getting sick, however, has put me behind. Behind in my training absolutely, but more importantly, behind mentally. I really want to stand at the start line feeling as ready as I can be. 

So, is 10 weeks enough time?  I guess I will find out.  In the meantime I'll try to stop freaking out.  Any advice out there?  I'll take all the advice I can get.
