In case you have been wondering where I have been, I have the stupid flu. Who even gets the flu in the spring? One day I had an awesome 10 mile run, the next day I couldn't get out of bed. I thought I just had a migraine which happens a few times a year, but then I woke up Monday feeling really sick. Of course I went to work anyway because to get another manager to replace me at 5am is a whole ordeal. I figured I could make it until 7 when another manager arrived. I actually stumbled around until 12 then went home & slept for the rest of the day & night. I thought for sure I would be better the next day. Nope! I only made it until 7 when I had to leave. At this point I went to the doctor who luckily received patients early on Tuesdays. They said I had the flu but would run some blood work for other things just in case (still awaiting the results). After that I took off work & stayed in bed until today, when I felt much better. I may even go to work tomorrow.
I have never experienced anything like this before, even typing on the computer took too much effort. Luckily, I was able to read and I had some great can't-put-them-down page turners by Stieg Larsson. So that's what I did, read & slept, I couldn't even eat booo.
Needless to say, my training has been put on hold. I couldn't even get out of bed let alone run or even walk. I'm not sure how I'm going to progess through this. I was scheduled to do a 12 mile run saturday which obviously isn't happening. Maybe next saturday if I can get my short runs in. My fellow runners from runnersworld.com feel that my endurance will carry over. I sure hope so!
