I’m still learning things about myself. That’s a good thing right?! The biggest thing I learned today is that I am not a good sick person. I can’t remember the last time I was sick. Usually I get some allergy stuff in the spring and fight through it, even run through it. But that is not meant to be right now. Apparently I’m supposed to learn/accept (word of the year alert) that I cannot neglect a sickness.
So I sit, lay, dream about feeling better, imagine and plan for new races/runs and hope that a couple of days off won’t lose my training for the marathon. I know crazy right. One weekend off isn’t going to make you get out of shape but your mind (or my mind) plays some crazy tricks on you.
I did fortunately get out today. My daughter had a photo shoot for some dance pics and I went along to help her (read as: hold her coat and blanket). I was glad to go and I did get a little jogging in, back and forth to the car to get things we needed. It seemed like a good idea to jog because then I could report back that I did some exercise plus all I could think about today in the light snow, was going outside for a run so this would cover both things right. Well what sounded like a great idea promptly ended in a coughing fit which ended my hopes of doing much exercise today. But I still was glad I got out because it was a beautiful day and so peaceful in the snow.
Janathon update for 18/31
Light jogs back and forth to the car
Coughing fit = ab workout
Drinking lots of fluids = lots of trips to the bathroom = hydrating well!
Here are some pics from our early afternoon photo shoot. Happy 18th day of January/Janathon!
