So, I’m sick. Whomp whomp. I felt crappy last week, thought I was doing better over the weekend and had a bit much too fun, and woke up Monday feeling much worse. It’s now Tuesday and I still feel awful! I have double ear infections, a head cold, a chest cold, and the worst sore throat EVAH. No strep though, so that’s good news 🙂
I’ve been feeling frustrated because this has knocked me off my workout/running routine. Part of me is like, stop being a wuss and just go for a run! But the other part is like, but maybe you should go take a nap and not exercise for a few days. I’m just not sure where the line is between taking care of myself and not letting a little cold slow me down. I don’t want to be a whiner, y’know?
Anyway, I’m trying to take it easy now, since being active over the weekend made things worse. I am going to work, since I don’t want to use another sick day. I’m drinking lots of Throat Comfort tea, taking about five different kinds of medicine, and eating (mostly) healthfully. I went to bed at 8:30 last night and I’ll do the same tonight. I would say I’m listening to my body, but that’s the weird thing – from the chest down, I feel great! My legs feel fresh and I’m dying to go for a run. But from the chest up, blech. I’ve never had an ear infection before. It’s pretty sucky.
I don’t mean to go on and on about this. Just wanted to check-in!
