Having a cold and training

So this week I have felt like this:

Okay, maybe that’s being a little dramatic, but I have been having the worst congestion in my sinuses! When it comes to training, I tried to run Wednesday morning and I was just so stuffed up and my head was pounding so this week I’ve ran an awesome 3 miles. UGH. Quite a bummer. So I’m calling this week a wash and getting ready to get back at it next Monday, since Sunday we are traveling to Texas (San Antonio to be exact) for a work conference and we don’t come back until super late night on Wednesday. I’m planning on doing a few short runs while I’m in Texas, early in the morning to do some exploring around town.

Tomorrow I have a work meeting for about 3 hours and then B and I are traveling out to look at a venue to have the wedding at. I still can’t believe that I’m engaged. It’s CRAZY and exciting. Especially since I’ll basically be out of commish August-December for the Europe trip and work stuff.

So here’s to starting over training next week and picking off right where I left off. Hey, I’ll call this a recovery week from Surf City. :) Hopefully I’ll have lots of fun stories from the work trip in San Antonio as well.

Cheers to Friday!

    I have had a bad two weeks, completely derailed my training. I can actually breath tonight, which means tomorrow its back to training. Seriously behind though. Good luck getting back on track!

  10. my boyfriend lives in San Antonio! We go running there a lot… it’s so beautiful and festive. And the weather should be fab this week. Enjoy it girrrlll

  11. I’ve been fighting a cold too. Hope you enjoy Texas. San Antonio is great. If you get a chance you should visit Mi Tierras. It’s an awesome Mexican restaurant with a great atmosphere and a huge bakery inside. It’s on the riverwalk.

    Hope you are feeling better. Try alka seltzer cold, especially at night before bedtime. Have a blast in San Antonio! We lived there for 4 1/2 years, enjoy the great BBQ and TexMex food…oh how I miss that, I just love food!

    I hope you feel better quickly! Sounds like you have a busy year ahead of you!

    I just got over 5 weeks of congestion and I missed alot of my runs. I finally got some antibiotics and a steroid shot and was instantly better. Don’t suffer 5 wks. like I did. I hope you feel better soon. Enjoy our Lone Star state!

  18. RunningBlonde says:

    Oh! P.S. If you go to the Alamo and look in one of the huge flower pots in front, you might find my black throw away gloves that I left there during the Rock-n-Roll San Antonio race. You can have them. In fact, I would be honored if they went to you!

    feel better, being sick and running sucks. But B loves you even when you cough all over him.
