A Crappy Couple of Days – RunLog 4-22-17

After my 3.0 miles on the treadmill, when I shut down a planned 5.0 miler early yesterday, I just think everything caught up with me. I hadn’t felt great all week and not finishing that run just capped everything off.

Yes, something kind of damn bug is still making its rounds around at work and while I haven’t gotten whatever it is enough to stop me in my tracks or feel bad enough to call in sick, the constant lingering crap finally wore me down.

Even stubborn old farts get tired of feeling worse than usual.

Last night I got to talking with Mary and with all the rain/nastiness outside yesterday, the forecast of mid 30’s with a drizzle most of the day made me really think about how smart it would be for me to drive to Unity this morning. Simply to get my arse kicked because I am feeling like shite and probably do something stoopid like try to run faster than my conditioning or body is ready for. Thereby breaking/pulling or otherwise screwing up my body even more than it is.

You know the usual Harold the Destroyer mentality that I usually have about things. πŸ˜‰

Believe it or not, even though I pre-registered, I pretty much decided last night that unless the sun was shining and it was 50*F (not likely) that I wasn’t running it. When I looked out the window this morning, I just rolled over and went back to sleep.

It was an easy decision for a change.

I did walk Bennie three times, but that has been the extent of my exercise today. I am feeling a bit better and didn’t do a whole lot that was productive today.


Hopefully, I will feel better tomorrow and get off my arse and do something productive. If I don’t then it will be two days in a row as a slug. πŸ˜‰

  1. Ugh – that seems the way things have been going for a bunch of folks. Someone I’m ‘friends’ with on Instagram had been sick but was so focused on running Boston and still hitting goals … that she ended up in the medical tent!

    It was funny last weekend to see on TimeHop that a year ago I was going for my first run in 9 days after being sick – took a whole week off and since Lisa was off on the weekends I took those as well … this year I never got REALLY sick, but the last two weeks has been a miss-mosh of on and off days, with yesterday my first REALLY normal feeling running day (the on and off left me feeling a bit sore and creaky … yesterday was ‘get up and go’ time!)

    Hope you feel better soon … we have our coldest morning in a week or so today – 29F … getting ready to go out, but dragging my feet a bit for a few extra degrees πŸ™‚

    1. The last two winters have been tough in the illness department. Gotta get retired again, so I can stay away from people and be healthy enough to run. I haven’t decided yet whether I will run today or not, feeling better, but not quite where I would like to be, probably only do an easy 3-5 depending on how I feel. This is the best day we have had in a long time, so I hate to waste it sitting on the couch.
