Ive been trying since Friday of last week to get sick. It didn't really kick in until late in the afternoon, scratchy throat, cough, you know the regular symptoms of a cold. On Friday I was absolutely peeped up about my 18 miler so I didn't really care. Well Saturday it started getting a little bit worse. It was amazing...my body was in great shape for such a long run but my head was stopped up, you win some you lose some.
Well after a weekend of hot weather/cold weather I am officially sick. I hate to have to admit that. I don't let sick get me down usually but today all of the 7 dwarfs have taken over my body. Sneezy, Sleepy (thank you no sleeping because I cant breath), Dopey (thank you Benedryl), Happy, Doc (I think I need to see one). Yes all of them. I have made up some new ones too....rashy, itchy. What started out as a cold is now compounded with an allergic reaction. A rash has developed all over my body. I have gone over my last 2 days trying to figure out what has caused me to react like this and I can come up with nothing.
Sick or not I did go out and run today but I skipped all the rest of my workouts today. I got the joy of running with my niece today as well as my regular running buddy. It was a pretty good time. I never get to run with her, that school stuff gets in the way. She was a pleasure! No running tomorrow, hopefully I will feel a little bit better and get to do Zumba and my swim.
My day today has been nothing but work, Job #1 and #2. It has actually been a little bit mundane. I am still sitting on cloud 9 from my run though. I am still trying to wrap my mind around it. This is the best runners high I have ever had, its lasted 3 days now. Only one more long run before the Big Day. I am getting so excited now that I cannot contain it anymore.
I'm gonna hit the bed now, honestly I have been in bed posting. Hopefully I can get some good sleep and be all better tomorrow, Hopefully! I have to get all caught up on my sleep because its almost Black Friday shopping time....and we all know how important that day is in my family!
I will try to post again tomorrow before 11pm. Night all!
