Remember earlier last week when I said I had come home from my work trip and then FW got sick Sunday night? Well, that wasn’t the end of it! B came down with it Monday, and little LM followed Monday afternoon. Between the 3 if them, someone was sick in our house though Wednesday afternoon!
While I didn’t end up getting the stomach bug directly, this still affected my running. Or lack of it. Sick kiddos can mean little sleep, plus staying home with them meant I had to play catch up on work and then worked till midnight some nights (which meant my early morning wakeup didn’t happen).
So how did the week look?
I finally got in a run on the treadmill Thursday morning. FW woke up early, so while he watched Elmo on the couch (and B and LM slept) I got in some miles.
Friday included some more treadmill miles while the kids slept.
And Saturday was a solo outdoor run! Those don’t happen often on weekends, but B knew I needed it after the week we had.
Some questions for you:
- When was the last time you were sick?
- Do you workout when sick?
I’m linking up with the weekly wraps and linking up with My No-Guilt Life, Marcia’s Healthy Slice, and MCM Mama Runs.

As a pediatric nurse practitioner, some days I feel like I work in a minefield! I try so hard not to catch what’s going around, especially the stomach bugs. Ick. Every once in a while tho, it catches me! Glad you are all feeling better.
Awww…your poor kiddos! Hope they are recovered now. we were just out to visit my grandson in CO and he got the stomach bug the last day we were there. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I don’t get it!
So sorry that everyone in your household was sick 😦 Hope that everyone is now feeling better!
Oh wow, so sorry everybody was sick. Not fun at all, especially for the caretakers. Hope that bug has cleared out of there for good.
We’ve had a lot of teachers out due to illness in the past weeks and i am so glad that I haven’t caught anything yet (knock on wood)!
I haven’t dealt with sick babies but I have dealt with sick dogs and and that has left me with little sleep, so I can relate! -M
Sick family members and babies – including fur babies – is the worst!
