I am slowly going crazy 1-2-3-4-5-6 switch!

First off, before I dive in self-absorbed pity party, congratulations to Sonia, she is next in line for the 50/50 book! Sonia, e-mail me soon so I can get the book in the mail to you. Its a great read!

In other non-news, I am still sick. I have a dry cough that has rendered me speechless. Yep, I have no voice right now. As a teacher, I'm pretty much toast around the kidlets. So tomorrow will be a sick day. I am really going stir crazy because I haven't run since the Philadelphia Marathon a week and a half ago! Now I know a break is good, but I didn't want this long of a break! I did go for a swim last night (1.8km), and felt better after, but still spent the night awake coughing. I am so tempted to go for a run now, I can't stand sitting and doing nothing! Arrrgghhh!!! Once again Arrrggghhh!!

Sorry about that, I just needed to get it off my chest! I do have plenty of nonrunning real world junk to catch up on, so I guess nows the time! Anyway, I hope you are all having a better week. Thanks for reading!

Hopefully the sick day allows you the rest you need so you can get healthy and get back on the road!

Sounds a lot like what's going on here. I hope we both kick this thing soon.

I am feeling your stress and I am several hours north this week..don't worry. In a week you will be probably 100% and can jump right in. Why not enjoy the sick day and catch up on silly stuff like Oprah or HGTV? If you are feeling better by Sunday, I welcome the company but don't overdue it. Let your body fix itself.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Maybe you can do something with stretchy bands for exercise that mignt not make you cough?!?!?

I think I had that last week. Probably didn't help that I yelled for 3 hours straight at a football game, huh? That might have sent it over the edge.

I hate being sick! Feel better and rest - it will cut back on the time you have to be out of commission!

SuperDave said...

Being sick sucks! Drink plenty of fluids.. Get better soon.

Sonia said...

Thanks! So many of us are sick in some way or another right now. After the stomach bug, I feel like I am coming with the cold too...

I tried to e-mail you but the postmaster returns my e-mail all the time...... probably easier if you sent me an e-mail first (solo_running_chick at hotmail . com)

Thanks again!
