Not dead yet.

So I haven't actually fallen off the face of the earth, but the last two weeks have been tough.
I got laid up with a hurt knee a little over a week ago. I rested it for four days, because I really didn't want to hurt it worse. When I ran again on Thursday of last week, my knee was fine and I figured I was back on track.
Then I got laid up AGAIN with a sinus migrane that started late Friday night. As of now (Sunday morning) it hasn't let up, and I've resorted to attacking it with the sorts of sinus meds I try to avoid because they make me spacy. Currently, I am spacy and I STILL kind of feel like someone took a sledgehammer to my face. I hate decongestants--especially since my nose isn't stuffy--but for reasons that sort of escape me, they seem to help.
I am currently watching the Sunday Morning Runners run past my desk window, wishing I could join them, but I can't let my heart rate get up or else I REALLY regret it.
I was dithering about diet, too, but I'm back on track with that today I think with a well mapped food plan for the day. Pushed diet goal back because of marathon training. I'm getting really tired of pushing these goals back, but I also don't want to get hurt or sick, particularly coming off of being hurt and getting sick (or, well, whatever--I'm not sick, but thanks to the Sinus Migraine I might as well be).
