I haven’t been running. First there were thunder storm, then I had to move my daughter out of her dorm and back home, and THEN I caught this nasty southern Illinois bug that knocked me on my butt.
More than a week of running a fever, a throat raw from coughing, a head so congested I couldn’t really think straight and ultimately a trip to the emergency room. The gave me meds, I took them. I’m fever free and can breathe now. . . the cough is still hanging around.
I missed my week day runs. I missed the Global 6k for Water, I couldn’t even volunteer because it got so bad. Tonight is the JPMC Corporate Challenge and I intend to walk it. Saturday will be my first run back and if I’m being honest, I’m nervous AF.
I’m nervous not just because this is the longest training interruption I’ve ever had, but I’ve been so wiped out that I don’t know how my body is going to handle the stress of breathing and pumping blood and oh yeah, running. I’ll let you know how this all works out.
