Couch Potato Day - Part II

We'll I was going to call the Dr. today and get checked out, but mid morning I started to feel much better.  My eyes aren't oozing anymore (thanks to some eye drops for pink eye I had on hand).  And I have no headache to speak of (knock on wood).  I'm still a bit congested and I have a cough but I'm no worse for the wear.  I've been trying to rest as much as possible (with a young one at home to take care of rest isn't really an option). 

As for exercise I don't feel full of energy so I'm going to listen to my body and miss the 3 miles I was scheduled to run today.  Tomorrow I'm scheduled to run 5miles and based on how I feel now (not 100%) I'm not going to run.  If I didn't have a  cough then I would go for it.  I've done workouts with a runny or even stuffy nose before.  Because of these two missed days I'm thinking Sunday will be a 5mile run for me instead of a cross training day.  I need to keep my mileage up!

For rest today I was able to get my son M- (or should I say Leprechaun - my nick name for him because of his birthday) to sit on the couch on my lap for a little bit and eat his cheese (in addition to that he's napping now so I get a short break before my older one comes home).  Before making it to the couch he insisted on getting a pot with a lid from the cupboard and he asked for some cheese.  I figured ok what ever works to keep him happy.  He put his cheese in the pot and then put the lid on and carried it over to the couch.  We then sat on the couch as he went into his pot of cheese for a nibble.  And here I thought leprechauns only liked pots of gold.  A boy after my own heart :-)
