Doods, there is something seriously wrong with me.
Besides all the normal stuff. I have been totally out of it for the past week.
My fever went away last weekend, but since then I have been exhausted! I haven't run in over a week (not good for someone who is supposed to have a 16-18 mile run on Saturday), I have been super-stressed at work and the cold weather that I normally LOVE to run in, just leaves me wanting to curl on on the couch in my jammies with a bowl of soup. My eyes are REALLY tired and swollen every night when I get home from work and the thought of going in the computer or watching TV makes me cringe.
So, sorry about the lack of posting/commenting. I'll have to pick it up in a few days after I rest. I have ZERO motivation and am just too exhausted when I get home at night to read. I just want to go to bed, which is what I am about to do in a few minutes. Before 10pm!!! Seriously, something is not right.
I have gotten over 8 hours for the past three nights (way more than normal) including all the rest I got last week/weekend when I was sick. But I just can't seem to catch up. This is not sitting well for the Marathon in two months. I essentially have zero training in and most importantly, my heart is so not into it right now. I am seriously thinking about dropping back to the half and just trying to race it (which I think would be a lot of fun actually). We'll see. I think I just need a few more days and a good run under my belt before I make any rash decisions.
So besides being a big, tired, stressed out slob, I do have some good news. I bought a ticket today to go see one of my very best friend's and her 4 month old baby! I have been best friends with Jackie for THIRTY years and I am so excited about meeting her lil peanut. YAY! So I will be leaving in the middle of February for a weekend in warm, sunny Sioux Falls, South Dakota where their winter will kick my winter's ass.
Also, we had a beautiful snowfall a few days ago. We actually got a couple of inches that STUCK! It's been really beautiful. Here is a photo of my running trail. Not while I was running on it though...lazy bones.
Oh yeah, and there was this one guy that became the new President...what was his name?!?! That was pretty awesome too :)
OK, I'm off to sleep for 3 days. I'll catch up with all you nerds later.
