Well that was two weeks, two tough weeks...

Sunday, April 28, 2013

When we last heard from our heroine, she was home sick, dealing with the shock and deep personal impact of the Boston Marathon bombings...

The rest of the week was very busy and I was pretty much dain bread for the duration of it. Went to a disaster preparedness conference for public health and then down to the range with my Army unit for 3 days. I did qualify on the M-16, which really got me pumped.

On Monday the dain bread continued and my night treadmill jog was very taxing. On Tuesday, and I went home sick for a nondescript GI illness and stayed out Wednesday too. I spent a day and a half in bed with no energy, which is completely NOT me. I think the rest really paid off since I went back to work on Thursday and Friday with my brain (mostly) intact.

I missed a lot of days of working out since I was sick. So I am working to get back on track. My eating got rather off track too, so I'm getting buckled back in.

It felt good to have a couple of days off to just rest, not stress, and run! I have another 5K and a SP Rally on Saturday. Looks to be fun!

    You know what they say, feed a cold and starve a fever. Or the other way around? Anyhow, when you're sick, you're off your feed. You will be back to your normal self soon, if not already! You sound excited in your blog, so I think you are recovered.
