Well Dammit…

I guess all of the travel, super late nights, alcohol, not so great food (I mean it was delicious! But definitely not nutritious in any way, shape, or form haha.), and general Christmas craziness has finally caught up to me. I woke up tired, congested, and with a sore throat. Fun times…

So it’s looking like my running days in 2017 are over. Haha at the very least I wanted to do something that almost resembled a long run (6-7 ish miles?) and maybe even a few easy miles on New Year’s Eve, but that’s not gonna happen. Especially with how cold it is. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the cold and have actually run in colder/more crazy conditions (-10 degrees with at least 8 inches of snow on the ground. That was a super fun day. ๐Ÿ™‚ ). But it’s probably not a great idea to attempt to run when it feels like -4 outside and you’re obviously coming down with something.

I guess today would be a great day to try out the “flu-fighter chicken and rice stew” recipe from Run Fast Eat Slow, but I don’t have all of the necessary ingredients and I don’t think getting out in this cold and driving to the store in a car that has no heat is a good idea anyway haha. I have a feeling that that wouldn’t help my current situation at all, and I don’t think the soup would is worth that. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It does sound really really good though…

Anyways, I guess I’m going to spend the day curled up on the couch with my dogs (two of whom would rather be outside all day, but it’s waaaay too cold for that), Netflix and lots of tea. But at this point it’s looking like I’m going to be ringing in the new year sick. Sadface…

Poor Dean would rather spend the day guarding the backyard from squirrels, birds, the evil mail lady (she’s actually really nice. My dogs are just assholes), and barking at his friend Cujo the German Shepard, who’s backyard is right behind mine. While Finn attempts to herd him and pretty much anything that moves. But it’s too cold for that today.ย 

I hope everyone is well, has a good Saturday, and a safe and fun New Year’s eve!!

    Ha, I’ve had a cold all week and was also bummed I couldn’t run. It’s also way too cold here to be running with a sore throat. Also, I JUST ordered Run Fast Eat Slow!! I think I should be getting it today. It looks great. Feel better!
