2/5/2008

Word for today is "stupid". That's what I was on Saturday, when I, despite feeling poorly, decided to go ahead and ride the 1 1/2 hours and then run 8 miles afterwards. Stupid to do the run for sure, probably stupid to do the ride. Soo, I finished the run, and then felt like I was going to drop, for real. I was so freakin cold, my hands were white. I guess all the blood was going somewhere else. Anyway, now I'm good and sick, and still feel like crap even though I've laid around for the past 3 days, taking Zicam, decongestents, drinking orange juice and water, eating whatever sounds good, sleeping lots, etc. I had to cancel my swim lesson Monday morning, and I am hoping that I'll be up to cycling by tomorrow. So people---if you feel like you are getting sick, STAY HOME AND GET WELL! Don't be stupid like me.

I hope you're feeling better soon, but if you have the same crud I do, it'll be a long drawn out battle....arm yourself! Lots of tylenol, tissues, and musinex.

Okay your post must be a sign from God. I was literally sitting here fighting off my own illness and thinking about whether I should suck it up and go out and run. Derek had the flu last week, both my little ones have it right now and I've been feeling crappy for days now. I went to cylce on Monday and walked out feeling like I'd been run over by a Mack truck. You'd think that would be enough of a warning sign to tell me to stay home and rest instead of pushing it -- but, nope, until I heard direct instructions from you, I was still mulling over the stupid idea. Now I've decided I'm going back to bed and saving my energy for Saturday's long workout.
