Couch Potato Day

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
:-)
