I have one of the stuffiest colds I have had in a LONG time. Overall, it’s probably the worst cold I’ve had in a couple of years, but the coughing is not quite as bad as the last really bad cold I had (seriously, the last truly bad cold had such a wicked cough that I could hardly eat because every time I had a coughing fit, I threw up. Yeah, that was fun.)
Anyway, I’ve been trying to write all of my year end posts that I like to write, but every time I sit down at the computer, I think “a nap sounds better” and off to the couch I go.
Despite not wanting to run at all, I did manage 1.6 miles on the treadmill last night (Beer Geek and a friend guilted me into it), so the streak lives. And as soon as I can take a deep breath through my nose (or heck, any breath that doesn’t lead to coughing), I’ll get back on my training plan.
Because I’m pretty sure my “fall back” week was not supposed to be seven runs of approximately a mile distance. Oops.
On the bright side, even if I only run 1 mile a day, I’ll hit 100 miles this month, something I haven’t done in ages!
And I’m getting a heck of an ab workout from the coughing…
