Slow down, sister!

I’m sick. Yes, I knew it was going around- I tried to avoid it, really! I Cloroxed everything! But, alas it found me.

I should have known something was not normal when I got dizzy and about threw up running 5k on the treadmill.

(Side note- since when is 5k a nothing maintenance run? Super awesome!)

As I got off the treadmill I knew something was wrong.


I’m sick. Sigh- I don’t have time for this. (Does anyone, really?)

After much hemming and hawing I decided to take Monday off from any kind of activity, and yesterday, instead of running with the Lifetime Run Club, I walked. (2.5 miles is still 2.5 miles…)

While I missed getting my run in, it was actually kind of nice to be all bundled up and check out the beautiful displays on our Christmas light Run.

Below is the house we chose as “most awesome”- incidentally, the owner came outside and he was recognized as a member of the Lifetime Cycle Club. His name was Joe. Joe knows how to do lights right. 🙂

So anyway, I won’t run tonight either, and with the help of Zicam, I’m hoping to right this ship and be back in training Thursday.

Where do you draw the line when you’re sick?

What’s your “threshold” for staying in and getting better versus pushing through?
