I'm actually sitting on the couch as I type this post from my phone. Last night my two year old M-, was up allot. When he was asleep I was awake with a cough and I have swollen glands along with no voice and my ears are plugged up. Even though I'm a little tired I did manage to get a little bit of house work done this morning. I vacuumed and hope to get some more done in the living room and perhaps I'll wash the floors if I can. My little one is a snuggle monster right now and I don’t want to interupt that :-)
I'm thankful that today is a rest day according to my training schedule for the 12k - I don’t have a ton of energy. Yesterday I ran 4 miles with hills on the treadmill. My pace was 11 1/2 minute mile. Tomorrow I'm scheduled to run three miles. I hope my energy picks up so I can run tomorrow. If not then I'll be walking it. I'll have to see how I feel tomorrow. I was also scheduled to go to a playdate but I'm thinking I'm now going to cancel.
So far for food today I've had 2 pears, 1 banana and three cups of coffee w creamer (1/2 calf).
For lunch and supper its chicken noodle soup. In addition to that I will be drinking some hot tea courtesy of my running partner and friend Gwen (Thank You! XOO).
As impatient as I can be sometimes when a wrench gets thrown in the works it serves as a reminder I need to slow down sometimes. I need to listen to my body. The no pain no gain principle does not apply.
I will get better quickly no matter what - so I hope on the quickly part
