Have you ever had that cold that seems to linger, and linger, and linger, and linger???? Well that is where I feel like I am right now. I know technically I have only had this head thing since Friday but it feels like forever. The biggest issue that is left over is the breathing part, oh and the part where I have no voice and I sound like kermit the frog or a kid going through puberty and their voices cracks all the time. I was sitting in session today talking to a client (in fact telling him Goodbye) and I could barely manage a whisper.
I’m fine with the no voice part, the part I don’t like is the struggling to breathe while running. I know I need to be getting my miles up so I am trying to do more. Today I was able to get in 6 miles and it felt pretty good. It is getting a little cold to be outside now with an afternoon high in the low teens and snow expected tonight. One of these days soon I might be able to get outside again for a long training run. But until then I will spend some quality time on the treadmill at the gym with a ton of new January members (glad they are there, hope they stay, and wish them luck on their goals, but hope their time to be there becomes a little different than mine).
So yeah for getting things done in Janathon and here is to probably one more night of nyquil to help me breathe!
6 mile treadmill run – 8:43 pace
Happy 21st day of January/Janathon!
