Down for the count

Had a good run Thursday night, again meeting up at Michele's for another 5 miler. This was supposed to be a little easier and it was to a degree. We ran the Krooked Creek area so it wasn't quite as hilly as Blooming Ridge is but it still had the rolling hills. Ended up with a 10:27 pace for non-stop 5 miles.

Now I am sick. Friday morning I didn't feel really good then about 10am I started having hot flashes and sweating. Fever. I actually felt like I do when I give blood and almost pass out. Not sure what was up with that. Ended up going home once I felt like I could drive. Must have had fever the rest of the day. Just achy, sometimes hot and sometimes cold. Still ended up working from home as we had several conference calls scheduled. It was so hard to sit on the phone for 30-45 minutes at a time. I almost fell asleep a couple times. From 10:30 till 4:30 was on and off calls so I was never so glad when they were done. Felt achy and like I could barely move last night.

Much better this morning but no where near 100%. I'm thinking it must be a bug that's been going around. All I know is that after a great week of training, I may end up missing my long run. I guess I will know tomorrow as to how I feel. I am not planning on anything early tomorrow for sure. I really needed about 13 miles, but I guess I'll get whatever I get. Kind of frustrating, if its not work stuff its injuries or now sickness keeping me from getting my miles.

Oh man, that just sucks. That's the way I was feeling last spring, first the flu during/after the LR 1/2, then bronchitis, then the broken clavicle.

Hope you get to feeling better soon. I got my flu shot on the 7th and have been trying to avoid any sick people until it kicks in (I think it takes 2 weeks for it to become fully effective).

I know, I know!! Sounds like me, I was in Nashville, then sick, then the ankle, just when I was doing great, but don't get discouraged, give yourself a couple of days from being sick and then get right back out there, that's what I did, still felt crappy, but I really think it helped not lose any endurance. Don't get me wrong, I was pooped when those 5/6 miles were over, felt like marathons!

It's always something! Feel better.
