So, I'm sick with some sort of upper respiratory virus. I was supposed to work out with Caleb and Spada yesterday, but after a fitful night of sleep interrupted with congested coughs, I opted out and ran in the evening with Jason Martin. This morning I managed to crawl out of bed at 5:00am to meet Michelle, my new neighbor, at 5:20 on the corner of our streets. We picked up Dalena at the Dowd, and I trusted that once we made it to the speed loop that my legs would feel better. I was wrong. My breathing was all out of whack and my legs still feel tired. I just stuck to Dalena's side and figured I could at least just help her out with her intervals. After each one, I felt slightly light headed and knew it was a good call to modify my plans for today. Later in the day, after my boss heard my hacking cough, he instructed me to go home so that (1) I don't get him sick and (2) so that I could get better faster. I slept from 3PM-6:30PM today. Clearly, I needed that.
