I was feeling a little better except for the lingering cough that both my doctor and pharmacist would persist. I promised not to push myself, just some junk miles like Joe M. and other suggested. The first 3 miles sucked. Not because of my lungs but because my legs that did nothing but lay in bed yesterday. My shins hurt like heck. It only lasted for the first 2 or 3 miles but man.
I'd go to a certain point on my route and say if my breathing was still good I would go a little farther. My mistake was that I took my normal route in reverse which meant running UP the hill in Georgetown at about mile 10. That's when my lungs started to protest. I came across Key Bridge back into Virginia and tried to talk myself into turning and going up into Ballston ... after all Panera and my favorite bagels are there. I looked at my Garmin and saw my pace was clear up to almost a 9:00 mile, I thought about how much uphill there was to Ballston and did what was probably the more prudent thing and headed home. My legs had more miles in them. My lungs, though not in full revolt, were telling me they'd had enough. I went into our gym to stretch and did something I have only done 1 before, I took a puff off my inhaler which hasn't made me feel any better. Then again there is a possibility that it is way outdated :-)
Again, thanks for all the notes and words of advice and encouragement this past week while I struggled with sickness. I won't say that the big red X through the 22 miles on my schedule for this weekend, instead of the strike through, won't bug the heck out of me because it will.
Now to continue to get better. THANK GOD FOR WHOMEVER FORMULATED PREDNISONE! Looking forward to a better week this week. Three more weeks until Shamrock Marathon!!
