Last week was exhausting! We had various commitments during the week in the evenings and I really wasn’t feeling well again, so there was very little going on in the way of running. On Friday, I finally succumbed and went to the after hours clinic for my doctor’s office. They confirmed what I suspected–another sinus infection. So, I’m back on Augmentin in the hopes that I will be completely well by Flying Pirate weekend, April 13-14.
It’s a good thing too. My legs have felt super heavy at the end of my last two long runs and that is about how long ago I started feeling badly. Since I didn’t run on Tuesday/Thursday last week, Nathan and I went out for a few miles on Friday afternoon. It was just supposed to be an easy 4-miler, but after 3 miles, I was hacking and couldn’t catch my breath. I did a little walking a tried again, but my body was definitely done, so I ended up walking almost the entire last mile. At least I got out there!
On Saturday, we went to a super fun cookout and I felt pretty well, until all of a sudden, I didn’t. My legs started aching, my head started pounding, and I got really tired, really fast. We headed home and I crashed pretty much straightaway and stayed in bed almost all of Sunday (except to eat.) Thank goodness, by yesterday (day 4 of antibiotics) my energy was back and I was able to get a good bit of cleaning/organizing done around the house. I also finished up my latest freelance project. I’m really glad I considered taking the day off up front. It made my life a lot easier and the week ahead will go a lot more smoothly.
Speaking of the week ahead, I’m really excited about my first VoxBox from Influenster! I received it over a week ago, but I’ve been so busy, I haven’t had time to dive in. I’m making trying everything in the box a priority, so I’ll be posting about my experiences with all of the products at the week’s end. I’m really excited about the chance to try the goodies!
