Thus far today I have checked my emails 999 times, read about a thousand blogs (that’s a good thing though), written a post (it’s pretty lame, so, sorry about that), rented the movie Jane Eyre, and re-painted my fingernails. The most exciting part of my day thus far was my trip to CVS to pick up more soup and a magazine.
I hate staying home sick, as most of us do, but I feared that by going to work I was just going to wipe myself out more. Yesterday at about 4 PM I felt like death and came home and got in bed by 8:30. Ok, fine, so that’s not much earlier than normal but I did sleep until 8 AM this morning. That’s got to say my body is fighting something right?
Obviously I am annoyed because I feel like since tri training stopped, my running has taken some set backs. First with the shin issues and now with this dumb chest cold. I know I’ll only be out maybe a day or two tops, but like the rest of you, I hate not working out. I thought about swimming today because I couldn’t find anything about not swimming with a chest cold but then thought about infecting an entire neighborhood of kids at the YMCA and how crappy and selfish that would be of me. Thus, here I sit. Watching too many episodes of No Reservations and debating trying to run in the morning or seeing how I feel tomorrow evening.
All things considered, at least I’m stuck in the middle with you folks.
(Enjoy the tune HERE, since apparently both youtube and blogger are also sick.)
Fluids? Like soda perhaps? Chicken noodle soup with a soda on the side?
Sorry to hear that you're feeling under the weather. Hopefully it doesn't last for long. I wish I had a brilliant idea for you to help keep you entertained for a while but sorry, drawing a blank. I'm currently at work so reading blogs is my entertainment right now and you mentioned you had that one covered. Take care of yourself!
No wonder you responded to my post today so fast! And no running with a chest cold? How else am I supposed to cure it? Oh, right, whiskey! Get better soon. Cheers!
The only upside of being sick, for me, is being reminded of how terrible daytime TV is. I usually end up watch Ru Paul Drag U marathons. ha.
eh, the chlorine would kill the boogers, go swim.
Hang in there….you will be running soon! Take care!
Sorry lady! Hope you feel better fast!
You should go to the pool and infect all the kids – you will be doing them a favor by helping their immune systems build up.
Kids have super bugs and would probably be immune to your normal bug, but I've tried to swim while sick and the pressure in my sinuses made it unbearable! Feel better!
Wow, a summer cold! They are the worst, that's why I stopped running. Just do a few sets of bench presses with the gorilla.
OH man. 🙁 I hope you get feeling better ASAP!! Maybe this is just a much needed break for you body to quickly rejuvenate. Let us all know how Jane Eyre is… I read the book and want to watch the movie soon.
Ugh, colds are the worst. Hope you are feeling better soon!
You poor thing. I hope you feel better soon!
feel better girl! add playing words to your to-do sick list 🙂
