I survived the weekend and came out the other side feeling much better. My recent bout of sickness culminated Friday with me leaving work early and crashing at home. I thought some fresh air and a slow walk would help, but… Nope… I started out and then headed home and got rest.
The weekend was not restful however. Saturday I went with RS to get a new TV for his room, JR got a new bed and HM got tires for his car. That was just the major parts of the day. I must say, through I wasn’t feeling great, I was better.
Sunday found me running again. I don’t think I went too soon. I felt good, it was a beautiful day and so TJ and I went to the park to run a few miles. I had hoped to get in about 6 or so, but could only manage 4. I still have some congestion in my chest which the run helped, but it also impacted my ability to run further.
So I am 90% better. I don’t want to have a relapse, but I think I am past that. I must say, this was the first time in my memory of the past few years that a cold knocked me down for a week. It was pretty rough overall. I looked so bad on Friday that my boss made me go home early from work. That was a first also.
Today finds me tired, but doing much better. I really want to get back to my running schedule as I have a half marathon in 7 weeks.
By the way,, the weather today is going to be strange here in the deep South. It was in the mid 50’s when I got up. By lunch we will be in the 30’s and by the time I run this afternoon we will be back in the 40’s. All we need is snow to make this a perfect day. 🙂
