Rough Period

I ran today for 45 minutes & thought I'd die! Before that, I'd run once in 16 days. I had bronchitis and the flu at the same time. Coughing & wheezing. The other day I ran made the coughing much worse. I think today's run was hard not only because it's been so long since I've run, but I'm also still having a lot of trouble breathing.

The team I coach has been wiped out by the flu. Unlike anything I've ever seen. The boys didn't make it to the state meet though they were ranked 7th in the state. The girls had even more cases of the flu (7 of top 8!) + injuries. We managed 4th in the state meet yesterday. Ready to get myself & the team well!

Ouch! Get better quick.

I've always heard to run if the cold is above the neck. Don't run if the cold is below the neck, i.e. in your chest. I don't like that coughing stuff.

Hope you get better soon! I enjoy reading your blog posts.

Thanks K9. Yeah, David, I've always heard that too. I get bronchitis every 18 months or so. Usually effects me for 6 weeks!

It looks like you're able to put in some miles this week so hopefully you're getting over the crud.
