Sidelined with a Fever. December 23, 2012

Lately, healthwise, things hasn't been going very well.

Last month, I caught a cold.  I eventually recovered.

This month, I caught a cold.  I eventually recovered.

Now, I caught a fever.  When I tried to fall asleep, I knew something was terribly wrong.  My hands and feet felt icy cold even though I had a comfortable layer of goose down over me.

A fever of 100.6 F.

Now, I am sick with a fever.

Too Much Pizza. December 21, 2012

I know I am blessed that my workplace provided so much food when so many are going empty elsewhere, but I really fell off the eating wisely bandwagon.

Over 2 meals, I woofed down either 6 or 7 slices of pizza over the course of a day.

Carbo loaded and then some.

I better find time to get my runs in.

Wogged 16.06 Miles. December 19, 2012

Very happy to be out and about after having not one but two colds over a several week period.  It was no fun sitting on the bench.

Wogged 16.06 miles.

For the first several miles, my legs felt out of sync.  Things didn't feel like they clicked in until Mile 8.

The change of seasons was evident.  By the time, I got to Mile 15, my hands were extremely cold.

Note to thyself:  Bring gloves.

4.05 Miles with a Cold

I still have a cold.  At times I am congested, and a box of tissue is still my best friend.

Today, I pushed myself out the door for an easy run, but it wasn't easy.

By the time, I was finished.  My nose was stuffed and needed ablowing.  Note to thyself:  Take tissues next time out.

Sick with a Cold Again

Ugh...  I just recovered from a cold recently and here we go again.

The nose is running.  I am coughing, and a box of tissue is my best friend again.

I had to nix a run today.
