hodgepodge week in review

8 Oct

*If you follow me on twitter or facebook you probably already know I have been sick!

*My daughter brought icky germs home and we all got it.

*I stayed home sick on Monday.

* Tuesday and Wednesday I went to work but I came home and immediately napped both days.

*Thursday I was able to go to work and get in a workout. I went hiking in the park with my girl, Kerry. We wound up hiking 5 miles.  WOOT!

Gorgeous, ain’t it?!? Pictures like this remind me why I love where I live so much (even though I hate it at times)

*Friday (today) I had an inservice day at school and some of my coworkers were meeting for breakfast but a few of us decided to go walking on the beach. It was a perfect morning for a 3.66 mile walk on the beach.

*I am a bit overwhelmed with getting sick this close to my first half marathon. I am a wee bit nervous – mainly because of my lung situation.

*I have already said it but now I really get it and I really mean it: run, walk, crawl, FINISH!! This is my only goal for my first half.

*I have had buckets and buckets or orange juice, coffee and tea this week while  I have been sick…BUT nowhere near enough water 😦

*I am feeling better, not 100% but much better.  WAY better! 🙂 My lungs feel like I had a bronchitis/chest thing and my nose is still on the sniffly side but not stuffy. I am tired of being sick!

*I want to be better but I am still going to take it easy and rest as much as possible! At the same time, I am going to rehydrate myself!

*I WILL run/walk (whatever it takes) 10 miles on Sunday.

*Monday is Columbus Day and a day off from school (the karate kid has school) and I have big plans in taking Miss Lucy to the beach for the very first time! I cannot wait to see my puppy play at the beach and it’s supposed to be beautiful weather!

*I will try to keep you posted as my half looms (seriously, if we are not connected on twitter or facebook – let’s be friends!! I will post there daily!)

*For now, I am going to cuddle up on the couch with my husband and watch Robin Hood! We have a busy weekend ahead of us!

*  How are you going to spend your holiday weekend?

Thanks for sticking with me on this journey! MUCH LOVE to you all!!

    I still don’t understand it but Florida doesn’t observe Columbus Day so no holiday for me. I will be thinking of you tomorrow — I’m running 11 — my last long run before my 1/2 next Saturday.

    I am glad you are feeling better and as usual am in awe of your tenacity!!

    Way to go!

    Our kids don’t get off school, but that’s okay. I’m feeling sick and rundown myself! Try some colloidal silver to push past your yucko -it has worked for me in the past!

    Your 1/2 is coming! I’m so excited!!
