Happy New Year and Hello January!
This past week was very different from last week. I ran 2 days and spent the rest of the week at home with a cold. I did go out a few times for errands and to meet friends, but I was feeling so tired and no energy to run.
Monday was a cloudy day but still went out to run 3 miles. Then it was off to do laundry and cuddle with the cats. 🙂
That night it started to snow and we woke up with a white New Year’s Eve. Ugh, I hate the snow! I had to run 4 miles but the snow and ice made it difficult. Plus, I was getting very tired. My throat was already hurting. <<That is the first sign that I am about to get sick.
I stayed home that evening (went to bed before midnight) and stayed home the next couple of days. 🙁 I felt horrible. I was sneezing and coughing so much that my stomach started to hurt.
It warmed up on Wednesday and the snow melted. Still no running for me. I kept busy by reading “The Whistler” and I finished it on Friday. I also watched 3 seasons of “El Chapo”. Haha, so good and I couldn’t stop watching it.
Even my babies knew I wasn’t feeling well and they cuddled with me.
Each night before going to bed I took cold medicine with Emergen-C. My mom told me that a cold usually lasts about 3 days. Sure enough by Saturday I felt so much better. No coughing or sneezing, but I was still congested.
Back to work tomorrow and I am not ready. 🙂 I did have some grading to do over break and finished it last night. I told myself that I was not going to go to sleep until I finished it and I did. I was up till 1 am.
I already let my coach know that I am feeling better and he is having me run 3 miles tomorrow. I told him that I hope I wake up on time because I am so used to sleeping in these past 2 weeks.
I hope you had a great week! What medicine do you recommend to take for a cold?
