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:
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!
