Sorry for the silence over the past 2 days, I’ve been sick and I have not been running. My plan for this week was to do a track workout Tuesday and then do low key runs Wednesday and Thursday. But then I woke up with a bad sore throat Tuesday morning. When I got home from work that evening I was feeling awful and chose not to run. Wednesday morning I woke up feeling even worse and stayed home sick from work and also did not run. I have been catching a lot of colds lately- at least one per month for the past 3 months. I don’t know what’s up with that.
Today I’m feeling a bit better, so I went back to being a productive member of society (and by that I mean I went to work). After work I headed out for an easy 3 mile run. I actually debated whether or not to hit the track, since I hadn’t run since Saturday’s race (oh my gosh!). But a mile into my run I knew I had made the right decision. My legs felt fine, but my body was already out of energy. Not to mention I was not enjoying the pounding headache / 85 degree heat combination. It was hot enough that the cows, who happen to live across the road from the fainting goats, decided to hang with the ducks in the pond today.
Are you dealing with hot and humid weather this week?
Were you a productive member of society today?
Do you ever cool off in a pond like the cows were doing today?
