Finally on the mend

Okay, I have been sick for over 10 days now, and I am finally on the mend! Thank goodness! I hate being sick and being sick for that long is just awful! Worst of all is that I spent about 4 days of those 10 horribly sick either in bed or also feeling like death on a plate and looking worse than that. So I went to the doctor on Friday and guess what I have a sinus infection! So now that I’ve been on anti-bionics for a few days I am feeling more like me.

That means that after 14 days of not running (due to being so crazy sick) I got my butt on the treadmill today and managed to do my required 15km. Instead of doing my normal 7 minutes running followed by 1 minute walking, I did a walk-run treadmill run. That means I walked and ran whenever I could.

So I got my 15km run in and I feel awesome! I got through half the distance I need to do for my Around the Bay race. That is promising for me. So now I’m hopeful that this week will be better for me with the drugs kicking in and starting to feel more like me. Steve has been a fantastic husband the past week since I was horribly sick. He worked hard to keep things running as smoothly as possible while the kids were running crazy while I was sick. So if you’re reading this Steve thanks!

    Awesome run!
    Please share how you run in the slippery weather? Do you have special foot wear?
    I want to start running again but I am afraid of falling…
