Returning to health?

The last few days have been unpleasant. Not sure just what it was that I caught, but it wasn’t any fun at all. My wife, at one point, was convinced I had pneumonia. The last two days (Sunday and Monday) were the worst. I actually ended up staying home from work on Monday, which is unusual for me. Needless to say, I didn’t exercise at all.

This morning I felt a little better. I don’t know that I’ll be up to even walking today… but hopefully soon.

    I don’t feel like running, and I’m not sick. I’ve been drinking mucho cokes lately and getting fat. I need to start watching my diet again, and then I think running will not seem like such a daunting task.

    Lafe, I was happy to see your blog as I am a relative beginner myself – then got injured – and am now an absolute beginner. Forgive yourself for taking some time off until you feel better, you won’t lose alot progress-wise and your run won’t be a miserable struggle if you’re feeling up to par. Hope you’re well soon!

    Thank you for your encouragement, Lara. I appreciate it.

    I’m on the mend, and will get back to running as soon as I’m able. I keep telling myself I don’t have to be in a hurry, and I don’t. I am just looking forward to achieving my goals. :)

    And thanks for the link to your blog! I’m puttin’ you on my daily reading list! :)

    Ew, ew, ew!!!! I have a new layer added onto my body. I have not run in a week, and with water retention, and overeating, well, yuck. I’m going to exercise tonight. I need to run long and hard (like till I throw up), but my very special friend will be in town tonight, and though he said he would run with me, I cannot imagine how that will work because his legs are 10 ft longer than mine, so we’ll at least go walking. Man, I need help! I’ve got to get this layer off. Nothing fits. And I’ve got the dreaded “Dunlap” disease. YICK! Ok…I’ll try to stop compliaing now.

    I’m sorry to hear that you’re uncomfortable. I know all about extra “layers”, but I somehow think yours is more transient than mine. ;) That being said, I doubt running “till you throw up” is going to do much good. Exercise hard, but not that hard.

    On my end, I’m down to only coughing up two lungs a day, instead of four. You’d think I’d run out of ’em after a while, but they just keep coming up!

    This illness is really hanging on! Hope you are well recovered soon!!

    Thanks Lara! It has been hanging on. I’m on Robitussin DM, which slows down the coughing a bit, but can’t seem to clear it up.
