Fighting crud...

Sunday, October 06, 2013

I am fighting off the creeping crud. I am congested, sneezy, drippy, headachey, and I am tired. I might have to go to bed early tonight. I still went kayaking today, and when I got home the dog wanted to go for a run, so we ran about 2 miles and walked about .5... So, I am not letting this creeping crud rule my actions. I plan on taking it a little easier for the next two days, but hope to keep my fitness streak alive. I will just try and stick with low intensity exercise. (Although that run felt good this evening... I might have to get out for a short run. LOL)

Kayaking was fun today. We took a leisurely paddle up the Buffalo River with a Sparkfriend and her boyfriend. They were in the area for a dance the night before. It turned out to be a beautiful day for it. The forecast was for thunderstorms, but they all went north to Canada. I didn't even need a jacket or my wetsuit today. Amazingly it was nearly 80 degrees today! It is October... the cold weather will get here plenty soon, then I will be bemoaning the cold. LOL

    Yes the storms did come hear to Canada. Just make sure that you don't over do it. If you need to rest, you should. I hope you are feeling better soon.

You kill me!LOL When I get the sniffles, I am laid out on the couch moaning and there you are all congested with creeping crud, and running miles. I am taking a page from your book though. Yesterday, I had a rough, red sore spot on my leg where it brushes the other leg on my thigh. I have cream for it, but it is one of the moving boxes. I told DH I can't go for walk today because of it. Then I just said common, lets go and we did my walk anyways. Thanks for being inspiring.

    It is interesting that you enjoyed the run with the cold you are fighting. I just recently read that running while have a cold and congestion is actually helpful! You do more deep breathing and it clears the air passages. Maybe that is what happened for you!
