No no, I'm not in recovery mode. Well, I am since I spend the majority of the day in bed sick Sunday but that was after I ran my 3.5 miles (29:19).
I should back up a bit.
Remember s'ghetti girl was sick all day Saturday. So that meant I was nearly knee deep in barf sickness all day. Of course I knew I was a bit run down from all the 27 days of running but I was hopeful that I would make it through just fine. In fact I knew that given my superior conditioning, I would easily handle mounds of germ filled yuck-ness and come out healthy - yeah, right!
By Saturday evening I was feeling a bit touchy in the stomach. I figured it was fatigue and general gross out from being a mommy to a sick one while trying to entertain a healthy one and manage her visiting friend.
So after the bestest friend #1 was picked up, LBM and I went outside to play in the rain - of all things!
LBM trying out his hydration system.
He couldn't decided between plain water or enriched fluids
We practiced running hills up and down the road in front of our house. We had loads of fun while staying within ear shot of s'ghetti girl if she woke up and needed us.
That brings me back to Sunday morning when I decided to use my 3.5 miles to see if I was just sick or injured. I can run when I am just sick but not when I am injured. (play football much?)
Do you use something to know if you are "just sick" or "injured"?
I got the run in but felt pretty bad after I stopped running. In fact I felt good while running it wasn't until after that I thought I was going to meet the ground one way or the other so I spend about half of the day in bed sleeping but still got miles in for my 30 days of running.
I'm sneaking like that!
I woke up this morning after a night of sleeping the whole night through.
Yes, LBM slept all night long!
I feel so much better and s'ghetti girls says she is almost 100% again. Yippe!
