It’s officially been a week since I got sick. I’m still not back to feeling 100% better yet, but I am getting there. I don’t feel super ill and gross and like I’m dying anymore so that’s great! I feel like I’m finally able to start getting back into my regular routine, which is even better!
So I keep saying it, but I’ve yet to do it because I have been sick and trying to get more rest, but I really need to start getting up earlier so that I can start my runs before it get too hot and humid. I’m thinking that next week I’m going to start getting up at 5:45 am with Luke (that’s when he gets up for work). That should be good for now, since it’s not too hot out yet, but before too long I’m going to have to get up around 5 in the morning and I’m most definitely not looking forward to that.
Haha anyway I got up at 7:30 this morning. That’s about half an hour later than usual, but like I said, since I’m still kinda sick I’m trying to get a little more rest. Plus I knew it was supposed to be a little cooler out today (the high is 68 degrees and it felt like 62 when I ran) and cloudy so it wasn’t too bad I suppose.
I feel like the fact that I even ran today was impressive though! I’ve been kinda tired and cranky lately, probably because I’ve been sick and haven’t been able to do much running. So when I got up I almost though about not running today. But after a cup of coffee I felt a little bit better and got my ass out on the road and did the 3 miles that I told myself that I was going to do today.
They were 3 super duper slow miles, and I think the last half mile-ish was mostly walking, but I’m very glad to have gotten them done. Don’t get me wrong, this run was a total suck fest and I wanted to quit the entire time. But once I was done I felt quite a bit better both physically and mentally, and that’s pretty great! 🙂
But anyway, other than the fact that I was actually able to run this morning, today has been otherwise uneventful. Tomorrow should be a lot of fun though! If it doesn’t rain Luke and I are going to do a bunch of tilling and planting and weeding in the garden and that’s always fun! We’ve also got our usual every-other-Friday routine of grocery shopping, errand running, and probably dog park walking today, so tomorrow’s going to be very busy!
Happy Friday eve!
