Sick Day

I rarely take sick days from work, but running is a different story.  Yesterday was no exception.  I woke up with lower back pain and a sore throat.  I thought I would rest during the day and wait until after work to run.  When I got home not only did my throat and back still hurt I was drained of any energy. I laid on the couch until Dan got home with some friends, kissed him goodnight at 7:30, and went to bed.

I was hoping I would wake up this morning a new woman.  I do have more energy, but the pains are still there.  Also, Courtney texted me that she couldn’t run this morning because her throat was really sore.  Great. 

I actually think running makes me feel better when I am sick, or it might be that if I don’t run I feel that much worse.  So, I think I have it in me for 3 miles today, but nothing crazy.


Breakfast was a delicious bowl of cereal.  I really should stop buying cereal because if I have some in the pantry I will rarely choose anything else to eat.


I packed the ingredients for a turkey-apple-brie sandwich for lunch, but forgot to slice the apple.  I ended up taking a bit of apple, then taking a bit of sandwich.  Keeping it classy.


The watermelon is one of the best I have had.  So sweet and fresh.

I spent most of dinner time on the couch, so grabbed a few easy snacks for dinner.


Hoping for a healthier day today.

Thought for the day

The same can be said for pharmacists.  Hehehe.

  1. Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. :( Every time I walk down the cereal aisle I make contact with that Peanut Butter Cheerios, but I've resisted it so far. I know I'll eat the whole box!!

    Hope you feel better soon!

  2. I love, love, love peanut butter cheerios. So good with a cup of blueberries in it...
