Well, I've got it . . . my second cold-like illness this winter. I really can't ever remember having 2 colds in one year let alone just a month or so apart. Uggg - sigh, hurry up spring!!! A co-worker once described that first day of a cold feeling as PUNKED - isn't that spot on!!! I feel so punked!!! I wanted to do nothing more than come back home, pop on my jammies, and slide into bed, but alas, I had to work (but I'm taking tomorrow off to REST!!!).
I had forgotten my blackberry at home this morning (felt totally naked ALL.DAY!) so I had no choice but to meet up with "C" for our afternoon run. It's all the for the best. If I would have had my phone, I would have totally texted her and skipped the run. As it turned out - I felt a lot better during the run then I had all day, AND it's always so much fun to run with "C" - we talk and laugh and get sidetracked (with our jaws not usually our trek, though that can happen too sometimes). We did 4.4 miles using 2:2. We walked the last 1/4 mile, but everything else was totally 2:2. It wasn't the fastest overall pace, but at times it got pretty quick. At one point I said we're going awfully fast, "C" looked at her Garmin and it said 13:10 . . . yep, can't pull anything over on me. I know FAST when I feel it :)
We're running the 5Kilt on Saturday so after our run we got our plans straight. We have matching shirts featuring a monkey wearing a kilt (in lieu of us wearing kilts). "C" bought us some leprechaun hats and green beads - should be a blast! Stay tuned later in the weekend for a race recap (we're looking forward to see Holly from Rustbeltrunner and her hubz there, as well as the NP student interning with me this semester, "M").
