Under the weather!

This has been my new best friend for the last 2 1/2 days. Where oh where does all of the snot come from? I mean really, how can it just keep producing. It is like it never ends.

The really bad news is that I was not able to do my 9 mile run. I made it 4 miles with mostly walking. I made every attempt to do it though. I got up at 6:20 Sunday morning after not sleeping well at all and I ate my b-fast, got dressed and headed out the door at 7. I really wanted to be able to do it. My energy level was non-existent and I couldn't breathe. If you run you know how important breathing is. In fact it is the main thing you have to adjust to as you become a runner and when your nose is so clogged it makes it very difficult. I went as long as I could then I just had to cut it short. I figured I was not doing my body any good and I really needed to rest. Let's just pray that I will be 100% for this coming weekends 10 mile run.

I took a short nap on Sunday and then I slept really good last night so that helped. I am feeling slightly better today which makes me think I either have allergies or a cold. I kind of thought it might be a sinus infection but since I am feeling better today I think that is not what it is. Just taking some over the counter meds and blowing my nose like crazy to try to get this junk out.

Bless your heart. I feel for you. Hang in there, you'll be better by the next run. You tried to make it, that's what counts. Much better than I would have done. Hope the crud leaves quickly.
