Getting back into Training

So my sickness knocked me out..I mean out. Saturday was my first run in almost 3 weeks. By the marathon schedule, I should have done 6 miles. I ran in a 5K and had one of my worst runs and worst times ever. My lungs were killing me! I ran with my friend Felicia and my St. Judes Marathon buddy Jen Wharton. We all made it!

Last night I had a great run, but it was short. My garmin died and it was late, so I did about 2.5 miles. I didn't realize how dependent I had become on my forerunner. I ran almost the whole time...my walk break made me miserable, so tonight after I get off work I'm going to shoot for running 3 miles straight, which is a feat I have only accomplished once at the Women Can Run 5K in May.

I need new shoes! I read online today that running in old shoes makes you more prone to injury! I'm going to save up some money after our trip to the emmy's this weekend!

Get outside and enjoy the weather!

H1N1...or as my doctor says...influenza of some type..

You guessed it...I have the flu. I haven't been this sick since my junior year of college when I was bedbound for a week...I am just couch bound this time. I went to the doctor yesterday and was told to go home and rest and drink fluids. Very expensive sick note... My boss wanted a sick note, so I went to see her. I knew to rest and drink fluids..I didn't need to pay her for that. She told me I probably had H1N1, but wrote on all my paperwork "influenza of some type" and didn't test for what type. She just didn't want to be on the news as having a H1N1 patient. I wish I had the energy to be productive on this week off work, but the best I have done is loading and unloading the dishwasher once. I didn't shower for 3 days. I didn't make the bed, I haven't cooked, I haven't cleaned..I just sit and lay and read and as of yesterday, I have gotten out my computer. I didn't even feel up to getting my computer out until then. I have played more facebook games than I knew existed yesterday and today.

I am really missing running. I have to get well and go to the dentist and eye doctor tomorrow. I may try and go to the OB too, just so every part of me can be medically evaluated in three days flat. I don't know if I will make it to class Friday, but no one cares if I come or not since I am auditing. I guess I'll let my teacher know I have the flu and see what she says..
