One sick run!

Since my run on Sunday I've felt sick. I thought it was because I had slept with the windows open on Sunday night and the temperature dropped into the low 40's. Breathing all that cold air must have caused that sore throat I had....But this feel just won't shake. I always get sick around this time of year with the changing of the seasons. I attribute it to undiagnosed allergies and SAD.

In an attempt to try and shake this feeling I decided to go for a run after school today. Bentley wanted to go with and I decided to let him be my pace buddy. Great decision! Check out my stats courtesy of Pedro:

Distance: 2 miles
Time: 19:26 (umm...yea...that's a total PR in my world!!!)
Pace: 9:42
mile 1: 10:12
mile 2: 9:13

Bentley was pulling like crazy and since there was no one on the trail we were running, I decided to tuck his leash into his jacket and just let him go. He stayed just a few paces in front of me and pushed me to keep up. I was surprised with my pace and time when I would glance down at Pedro. For someone who "felt" sick, I was flying!!! I'm pretty sure Bentley could run at 9:00 mile if given the chance :)

Unfortunately...I'm kinda regretting this running decision right now. I'm running a low-grade fever and have the sick-aches all over :( Boo! Hopefully it passes. Preparing for a sub is more work that actually going to school.

On the plus side, I haven't dragged my butt out of bed before the crack-of-dawn, but I did get a run in! How are things working out for you?

  1. way to go on your run! i ran the other night when i was feeling puny...unfortunately i was slower, not faster. :)

  2. Nice job, getting that run in despite how you were feeling physically. I hope that you start to feel better though. That change of season sickness can get pretty nasty. I usually take claritin for about 10 days when I start to get that feeling.

  3. "Preparing for a sub is more work that actually going to school."

    I've always thought this, too. It's probably the ONLY thing I don't miss about being out of the classroom.

    Hope you're feeling better soon! Glad you enjoyed the volunteer post... it was definitely a fun time!
