I have neglected my blog so much that it should be overrun by weeds! Definitely not keeping pace here or in running! The Flu type B took me down four weeks ago and I am still struggling to get totally healthy. It hit me rapidly after a long run. I ran on a Saturday morning and by the afternoon I was fighting chills and fever. I had run seven miles and felt fine; no hip pain or anything and then BAM! I was blindsided by the Flu!
The Flu then led to upper respiratory/sinus congestion and then hives (don’t know why) which led to a round of Prednisone and now a round of antibiotics. I try not to take medicine unless it is really needed, but this time I was really miserable.
Recovery may have been delayed from trying to do too much too soon! My youngest son had a lot of music gigs that I did not want to miss. So when I knew I was not contagious I went and then I would feel fatigued and puny again! I even tried to run after three weeks and that did not help either! Lesson learned!
I did manage to run this week for two and half miles that included a good bit of walking. My training has taken a hit so I doubt that I will run St. Jude Half Marathon instead I will just focus on the Mississippi Blues Half and maybe New Orleans Rock and Roll.
So not much running, but lots of music with son #4! He is becoming quite a musician if I must say so myself! I have lots of pictures to share, but I will have to post them later, because they are not on my lap top! The hubby and I are having fun being his “Roadies” for now anyway! More later!
