Exactly 2 weeks ago today I was hit like a ton of bricks with a sickness. I was exhausted, had a fever and a cough. I stayed home from work for a day and felt better besides my cough. Once I went back to work I felt good but when I got home at night I was exhausted and the fever would come back. This went on all week that first week. By the end of the first weekend I thought I was good. Last Tuesday rolled around and it was like I was back at square one. I would come home at night, eat a little something and fall asleep in the recliner. I am hoping that I am at the tail end of it right now. I still am a little congested and have a terribly nagging cough but feel good otherwise. The exhaustion seems to be gone. I did make a trip to the doc the middle of last week but of course he said it was just a virus and all you can do is rest. Womp womp. I was hoping for more answers and maybe some antibiotics. With that doctor visit and all of the different medicines and cough drops I have tried, this sickness has cost me a few hundred big ones. Can't wait to be over it.
In the last 2 weeks I have gotten in exactly 2 runs. It has been driving me crazy! I can definitely tell that I have become a workout junkie. Which is a good thing I guess. I did do some weight training in those 2 weeks but when I tried to do some cardio, I wold have a coughing attack and had to stop. Today I did a very short run to test the waters. I got in about 2.75 miles. It went okay but my lungs did hurt a little. Such a strange feeling. Hopefully I can work my mileage back up.
Now that I am back at it I am hoping to get some new things posted for you here. I would like to start sharing some meal ideas with you.
Hope all is well with all of you!
