Ugh....have been fighting a bad sinusitis attack and sore throat since last week. Pain in head, cheeks and, since Monday night, even along the jaws and teeth. Finally dragged my sorry butt to the doctor yesterday (should have done this at least 5 days ago!). Meds starting to kick in, head starting to clear and I hope to be back walking in a day or so. Deep intakes of breath cause a coughing fit so running may be off limits for a few days longer. Hope you guys have had a better start to 2013 than me!!

    I have had the same types of issues! Going to try a run in the morning for the first time in a while. Respiratory infection and sinus infection with my family of 4 on antibiotics and I'm on steroids too. It's been so bad! I hope you heal quickly!

    Thanks Kelly! And nice to meet you! I do need to get back to running though because without it, I am inclined towards self pity (as you can see by the earlier post!). Feeling better this morning though! Hope you feel better soon too!

    Thanks and nice to meet you as well! Your not popped up so I thought we were already "friends" when I commented! I'm hoping I can breath normally if I get a run in! I'm a self pittier too so we can cry to one another ;)

    Oh no! That sounds like an awful thing to deal with, particularly during the holidays. No running until you're all better though, eh? You'll be back in great form in no time at all, you'll see! xo

    Oh Ruchi, I feel your pain! Sounds like we had the same awful bug over Christmas. The only thing for it is to take it easy. Just give it time and get back into it gradually. Walk first, then run!

    Hi everyone....yes, feeling a lot better though still have some congestion and sore throat. Maggy, it's funny that I responded to your post in an almost identical manner! Ha Ha. Strangely looking forward to getting back to more structured days next week!
