I hope you have been able to avoid whatever nasty bug I managed to pick up a couple of weeks ago! Boy oh boy, it literally kicked me on my butt for four days and not until then was I able to get off the couch. :(
|Two Saturdays ago at the doc. thinking it was strep but assured it was another sort of viral infection. So no meds and no long run the next day!!! :(|
|Cherry Berry froyo helped me feel better. :D|
For the past two weeks I ate A LOT of soup!
And a lot of these!
And spent a lot of time with her. <3
Jennie brought me this delicious banana bread after her long run and I made her retrace each and every step of the run so I could hear all about it.
Just keepin' the liquids coming.
When I finally went back to work the reptiles came to visit!
My first 5k run post viral plague of 2016. It sucked, I wheezed and I coughed but I was running. :)
A few days later I managed to do a long run along the trail that has been coated in ice and snow for the past few months. Well our super mild weather had gotten rid of all that stuff and runners from far and wide appeared on the trail that Sunday, including me. :) I met up with Marg and tagged along with her at a conservative pace for just over ten miles and then I headed home. 15 miles later I was toast! I prayed my cardio would return, soon. I was so amazed at how weak I felt...I guess a diet of soup is not ideal for a distance runner. ;) Don't worry, I've certainly made up for that now!
Post run: check out my calves and sneakers!!!
Oh yeah, I need to share my current favourite running tune with you! It's "My Church," and it's amazing!
Just replenishing my glycogen stores. ;)
I really do love my students. <3
LOL....this was just too funny! I guess I thought so since I signed up for the Blue Nose 1/2 this week. :D
Matt was driving home and caught me finishing up a 6 miler.
We've been doing yoga at school (staff) and I decided to reintroduce it to my class. They love Cosmic Yoga!!! I wrote about yoga for Writer's Workshop and attempted to sketch a pose, lol. Try not to die laughing.
I also did my first treadmill run in a LONG time. 5 miles takes sooooo long!
Okay, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Run Bold street banner app that John Hancock put out. You can enter your picture and they are choosing a bunch to be on the actual street posters in Boston!!! I chose my FAVOURITE race pic ever!
Just because: <3
So, I had collected all of these in a cup holder in my car. Someone is addicted to coffee (cough).
Lola and I did yoga this morning. This was our studio ;)
And then I ran the windiest run I'd run in a while! We got hit with a snowstorm overnight and the roads were less than ideal, but runnable. 8 windy miles at 8:30.
Thanks for checking in and not forgetting about me...lol.
Have you been hit with the nasty cold virus this winter?
Did you sign up for Blue Nose???
