Yesterday was a rest day – which was a good thing because I managed to get sick! Luckily, it’s just an infection that was already on it’s way out the door when I made it to the doctor yesterday. I figured I’d better get antibiotics to knock it out for certain, though. The downside? The antibiotics she gave me cause some serious tummy hurt. I was already forcing myself to eat throughout the day, trying to redevelop healthier eating habits… now I have to force myself to eat even though I’m queasy! Ah well.
This morning, I knocked out another 3 miler. I slept in a bit, but headed out the door when it was still dark. I’d forgotten how much I love running in the dark ~ in the morning, that is! For some reason, running at night just has never appealed to me much. This morning, there were several folks out on the trail, all bundled up & walking. I was running so slow that a couple of those ladies were doing a darn fine job staying closer to me than I liked! At least it challenged me to keep at it a bit. I’m trying to keep my HR within a specific range, so I found myself needing to fit in some walk breaks to bring it back down into range. As my fitness returns, that will improve. I just have to be patient.
Well, not a whole lot to report here, actually. Been working on the Candle Flame Shawl here & there. Didn’t get much done since I was sick yesterday. I’m nearly done with one skein of yarn on it, though – I think I’ll be able to use up all the skeins I have in this colorway – YAY! I’m really loving the stashbusting, it’s great to unload some of the stuff I’ve had hanging around forever. :)
