Friday sadly marked the end of the running streak. I woke up feeling not quite right and the feeling increased and grew as the day went on. By lunchtime I felt like I had the stomach flu – achy, hot and cold, stomach cramps, nausea, foggy head, unable to stand or sit up for more than a minute or two – but I didn’t have a fever and never threw up. I spent the entire day flat on the couch – while Dave was amazing and took care of Leo and brought me anything I needed. Saturday morning I woke up feeling pretty much fine. Sunday I felt good as new, though still a little tired. I’m not sure what I had – a bug or something – but I’m glad it passed and glad it didn’t cause any worse effects! Still, I’m sad the running streak ended. And with it, I missed my weekly long run of 17 miles. I don’t think I’ll be able to make it up during the week (I’d have to get up really early before work to do that), so I’ll probably just jump back on my normal training schedule (it’s been awhile with Tennessee and being sick!) and gut out the next long run a little less prepared. It’ll work!
How was your weekend? Have you managed to avoid getting sick this winter? I haven’t gotten a cold yet this winter, so one day of being sick wasn’t too bad.
