Miserable Monday Morning

Woke up today with a headache, sore throat, etc. I feel yucky. It is hard to maintain a positive attitude while feeling cruddy. Sorry in advance for the whining that is about to occur...

Saturday I got in a 1.5hr bike ride. It was windy. Just for once, I would like to go out on a ride and come back feeling good about how I did. Maybe next weekend will be better.

Sunday I went out on a 50min zone 2 run (actually jog is more appropriate). Seemed short, but this was supposed to be a recovery week, so I guess I did what I was supposed to do. Husband ran with me. More appropriately, he left when I did, passed me,took off into the distance, then caught up again when I was about 100M from home. Oh well.

I'm really hoping that I can keep up with him next Sunday for at least half the 5K. A lot will depend on how I'm doing with this cold virus that is trying to take over my body. This morning I attempted spinervals with said cold virus. It was pretty sad. Cold virus:1, me: 0.

In other news...apparently my teenage son made a bet with a friend over the superbowl game and now needs to have a horseshoe shaved into his hair. Normally, I really wouldn't care about this one bit. He's a teen and the least of my worries is how his hair looks. However, I just took time out of my busy schedule on Thursday to pick him up from school and take him for a haircut (and I paid for it) because he was bugging me to get his hair cut. Is he trying to make me crazy?


  1. Thanks for your post on my site. Coincidentally, I already had your blog bookmarked and had been checking in with it every few days. It's a great read. Keep up the good work.

  2. Your whine was nothing, I needed some cheese to go with mine! Sorry you got hit with a cold, it knocked out all my training for last week and I'm still recovering. Hope you're feeling better soon.

    Good note to self on the teenager, I've got to teach my boys appropriate bets to be made for Superbowls. At least I've got a few years.

  3. I think kids find it to be their jobs to drive their parents crazy... and their teachers! I hope you are feeling better soon!

  4. Hope you are feeling better.

    Sometimes we need to rest to get better. The training does get easier (for the most part anyway).

    That's funny about your son, there are worst things, like being Rex Grossman right now :)

  5. Ahhh. Hope you feel better. Teenagers don't "try" to make you crazy. It comes so natural to them. Like breathing and eating!

  6. Get well soon and let's hope your son doesn't add to your headache.
    I know exactly what you mean when you say you want to feel good about what you have just done. We've all been there. Just take pride in the fact you are out there and not sitting on your butt! Cheers!

  7. Hope you feel better and thanks for stopping by.

  8. Get better soon and get some rest. Teenagers, aren't they fun! I have one and another almost there. They sure keep us hopping!

  9. Relax and get well - you'll want your energy to pass your husband that last 100m of the 5k!

  10. Hi, Lisa! Glad you like your pillow...
    Good thing your son's bet wasn't "... and if the Colts win you can shave a horseshoe onto my mom's head..."
    I have that cold/virus thing now - mostly settling in my chest now - I lasted only 45 minutes on the trainer last night. Ick. and the headache - oy!
