A brand-new take on Couch to 5K……
My flu-like symptoms continued Tuesday…..Wednesday…..Thursday…..
I actually ran 2.5 miles on the treadmill Thursday morning and thought I was going to die. Or puke (I didn’t….until after I ate breakfast). Or pass out. Bad idea. But good idea. Because when I did the 2 miles this morning I felt much better.
Why bother? Because I’m running an 8K Saturday afternoon. The Shamrock Run in Buffalo. In 38 degree weather that’s supposed to feel like 19 because the winds are going to be between 40-60 miles per hour. Lovely. Good thing I got a free winter hat for signing up! I’ll be wearing that I’m sure.
So it’ll be more like Bed to 8K. Because after spending most of the week in bed I’m still going to try and run this darn thing. Wish me Luck! I don’t have any luck of the Irish in my blood, so I’ll need all of the good wishes I can get!
Oh and P.S. – of course the kids were up and about like they had never thrown up (even though I can still smell it in the rug)……but yesterday my dear Father called and said he had come down with it so my Brother in Law is at my house today watching Thing 1 and Thing 2. And Tim came home from work early last night….laid on the couch all evening, and threw up before coming to bed (but felt better after that – better enough to venture to work today). What a lovely little stomach bug this was! I guess it makes up for not being sick all winter.
