Almost Back

Well that sucked. I basically lost over a week of my life to the stupid flu. I've accomplished absolutely nothing, and I'm still not exactly back to normal. I hate being sick.

I'm hoping to wake up tomorrow feeling well enough to get to the gym for the first time in over a week. I really want to run a half marathon in April and am way behind on training now having lost two full weekends to the stupid flu (Have I mentioned that being sick sucks?). Anyway, I'm determined to get to the starting line on pure will power if necessary.

The 10miler in March? That probably won't happen now.

On a brighter note, we've booked travel to the Big Island for spring break. We'll be heading out a few days after our 19th wedding anniversary. I can't wait. :)

  1. Hey.. glad you feeling better! Don't sweat too much about it and make sure you're doing ok. Two weeks is ok for an April race, just shuffle your plan around a bit based on how you feel.

  2. 19 years? WOW! Congrats.

    We did go to Hilo on the day we drove all around the entire island. It was pretty cool - like a bigger city though. The best beaches are down by the resorts. The black beach was hard to find - there arn't big signs for things, so you can easily miss streets. But it was fun cruising around.
