Sicky Poo

I'm sick.  Again.  This is really starting to get old.  Of course looking back over my week, maybe I'm not being as kind to myself as I should have been.

Wednesday - Hard training run outside on the Knoxville Green way, despite tickle cough.
Thursday - Cough moved into my chest - took day off from exercise, went to work
Friday - Took day off from exercise AND work
Saturday - REST
Sunday - Skipped church, but went for a walk
Monday - Worked, did elliptical at lunch
Tuesday - Went to the allergist who diagnosed my allergies as out of control, gave me steroid meds (nose spray & inhaler) upped my allergy pill dosage, and gave me a breathing treatment.
Wednesday - Ran 4 miles worth of intervals at lunch on the treadmill, 6 miles outside after work (yeah, I'm that dumb)
Thursday/Friday - Worked, but took day off from exercise
Saturday - Mud run (outside.  in a field.  full of stuff I'm allergic to)
Sunday - REST (if you count playing with an 8 year old and a 4 year old as rest)
Monday - 5 mile run.  Outside.  In the park.  Through some grass.  That's I'm allergic to)
Tuesday - Day off exercise AND work.  Worried about my 11 miler this weekend.

My half marathon is in 4 weeks.  Any suggestions how I can easy back into things without pissing my body off?? 


  1. No suggestions give, but hope you feel better soon! :)

  2. Take some Zicam. I take the chewable kind, but there is also a tablet that dissolves in your mouth. It's basically zinc, and it helps chase away colds.

    Hope you feel better soon!!

  3. Oh no!!! Maybe rest until this weekend and just run a 5 miler. Pick it back up next week maybe?? Good luck!!

  4. Feel better soon!!! It sounds like a lot of your crud is allergy related. Maybe try a netti pot to help get the crud out of your sinuses.

    1. those creep me out, but my niece swears by them.

  5. I hate allergies! Maybe you need to run inside if there's any inside tracks around you.

    1. no track, but i do have treadmill access. i need to use it!

  6. o i am so sorry. I hope you feel better soon.

  7. Ugh! I'm so sorry that you're sick! :(
