This post will be somewhat sort because I’m sick. I’m getting over a flu-like cold and therefore this week included not so many runs, unless you count running after a 15-month-old. Even that was short-lived, as I tried to spend at least some of my free time napping.
Total for this week: 3 runs, 13ish miles total
- Tuesday: 5 miles
- Wednesday: 4.68 miles
- Thursday: 4.15 miles
Some of the highlights:
I did get in 3 runs before the plague hit. I slept in Thursday and Friday and opted to just go for a long walk on Saturday. I actually started to run a little with the stroller on Saturday morning, but had too much coughing/throat hurting (I had to breathe with my mouth open) that I decided that walking was a better fit.
Here’s to hoping that I kick this cold soon and am back and running again!
- Do you run when sick? Typically, yes. As long as it’s just a cold! But this one has got me down for the count.
- Any tips for getting better fast?

At least you got out there! I really like typically crash on the couch until I’m feeling better. Maybe I should get out and get fresh air next time – it might help me feel better later!
I hope you’re feeling better soon! I hate when I am sick when the weather is so nice. I feel like I am missing out..lol.
Sometimes walks are nice for a change of pace though!
I definitely love to sweat out my sickness, but when you can’t breathe then sometimes it’s good to just say OK the body needs rest because I’m not really getting it done anyways 🙂
There’s been a particularly wicked cold going around here this fall. It took me down for almost two weeks – just because it made me so tired. I still ran after the first few days, but they were pretty slow and didn’t feel awesome. Hope you feel better soon!
