Having a cold during the Summer is a terrible thing.. I don’t get the pleasure of at least having some warm soup or cozying up in a fuzzy warm blanket while I’m sick without feeling like I’m dying of a heatstroke. Oh and on top of all of that I woke up to no electricity because my neighborhood has decided to do repairs during the Summer. Needless to say today isn’t my best day.
On a more positive note (because I don’t like being negative) I got through a long run on Sunday with ease. I ran 5 miles in under 50 minutes. I was proud of myself because I have been so sick these last two weeks, first with a stomach bug and now this dang cold. I made it through the whole 5 miles quickly, without any walking breaks, and I didn’t feel like I was dying afterwards. Sunday is my long run day so each week an extra mile will be added and during the week I am making sure to run in between 2-3 miles 3-4 times a week.
