My son got a virus and then he shared with me. How nice of him! I had the most wonderful run last Saturday and then on Sunday night the scratchy throat started and the cough. Tuesday I stayed home from work hoping that I could rest and kick this to the curb. Wednesday I decided I would try to make up my Tuesday run which I missed and went for a "run" after work that turned out to be more of a walk with stopping and gasping for air and coughing mixed in. That was the only activity I have had all week. I made it through the rest of the work week, but feel really cruddy so my weekend plan includes some sleeping in on Saturday - no sacfit run this week (doctors orders) and hopefully I can get better quickly.
On a side note - I can't believe how much I miss my runs- even my hill workouts - I miss them! I'm going to miss Saturday morning so much - and that is much more than the running - it is the friendships I have with the people I run with. It is my release and my stress reliever. I have to get my self better soon so I can get back to it!!
