Monday Monday – Buried Under A Pile of Snot Rags

I am sick with a cold.  A really nasty one. Maybe it is the flu but I don’t have any body aches so I don’t think so.  There are 2 things I can’t stop doing – blowing my nose and eating.  This is what my trash bin looks like right now:


Snot rags and candy bars.

Snot rags and candy bars.

I bought a lifetime supply sized box of PayDays at Costco “for the bike”.  Ha ha!  I hope there are some left when it stops raining but I doubt it.  Never again.  I will only buy them at the convenience store while out on the bike and not before!

I am under the influence of Theraflu right now but it doesn’t seem to be working all that well.  Might have to do a shot of nasal spray to sleep.  God I hate being sick.  Besides missing my workout yesterday I’m going to miss my workout tomorrow.  Monday is my normal day off.  Maybe I can hit the trainer tomorrow – who knows?

On a brighter note I did a 10K trail race on Saturday and took first in my age group!  It was a 10 year age group 50-59 with 5 women in it and I came in first by 8 minutes.  I just stayed on the heels of these 2 girls whose combined age I figured  may have equaled my own.  Turns out their combined age is only 52.  WINNER!   So that was fun.  It was a really great run, too with lots of hills and mud and rocks and roots – the real deal!  My time was 1:17 so that’s not too bad for a muddy, hilly 10K.  At least I have that to be happy about because this cold really sucks!

    Congrats on your first place race…! I think you ran (trained) yourself into the ground! You will get better soon…athletes always do!

    Get well soon from your cold – if for no other reason than to spare us anymore used kleenex photos.

    well, you big galoot, no wonder you’re sick. if you use old snotrags for a blanket, you’re just going to inhale those germs. what we do–now sit down, this is exciting–is use real blankets that have not been used to capture mucus, phlegm, and yellow pudding globules.

    trust me. you’ll feel better.

  7. Oh no! Feel better soon!!!!!
