As I had predicted with the Run Streak, the biggest obstacles would be really bad weather and SICKNESS. (Well, I suppose there's a third obstacle which would be potential injury, but I don't want to jinx myself!) It's like clockwork, every November I get really, really sick. Last night I went to bed with a fever of 102.3 - yes, I'm counting the .3! And I just laid in bed not being able to sleep, feeling like death warmed over, more like on FIRE. By 3AM my fever still hadn't broken and I got up to take more medicine and laid back down until about 6AM when I finally turned into a clammy, sweaty mess and fell asleep. Lovely, eh? And what was I thinking the majority of this time? Oh, you guessed it. Will I be able to run tomorrow? Is this the end of my streak? I have officially turned into a crazy person.
Thankfully it's the weekend and I was able to sleep until almost 10AM. After the hellish fever fugue, even feeling just mildly horrible with no fever when I woke up was kind of awesome. And, yep, I bundled up and went for what I thought was a very slow shuffle that ended up being a nice little 10ish minute mile.
It wasn't too bad. I felt like I had spaghetti legs, but it was nice to get some fresh air and move a little! Now the other obstacle, snow and ice, that would prevent me from driving to the Y and also running outside safely. I suppose I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. I told my husband that I could probably just run circles around the living room for 15 minutes and call it good, right? Yeah. Crazy.
