I felt it coming on yesterday afternoon, Today it is here. An infection. It happens EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I get behind on my allergy shots. Especially if I do something to stress myself. Today is rest, zinc, tea, ginger and more rest. I guess I have to pay for my sins over the weekend. I am okay with that, as long as this goes away pretty damn fast.

It is absolutely perfect outside....I really should find my morning mojo and run early in the day.  However, today I feel rather beaten up (gee thanks, MrE) and have the atrocity known as work looming ahead of me before I can run my 6 miles.
Sad news, our friend and former Pastor in West Chester PA died last night after a battle with cancer.

Took a sick day and laid on the couch all day with a sinus headache. If there was ever a day to call in, it was today -- lots of ice on the roads this morning. Schools were cancelled. Went out to get the mail and the sidewalk is a sheet of ice. Winter go away please!!!

Yep, no workout yesterday. Still sore today, but hope to get in a short run. It snowed, so I'll go outside if the streets are plowed. It's also looking a bit windier this afternoon, so may just do the treadmill.  I didn't bring my gear to work, so here's hoping I maintain my focus until I get home.

Planning on an easy 6-8 on the treadmill. Right leg feels better, but no need to do anything drastic at this point.

-Update-
OK, so I jumped on the treadmill at a 7:30 min/mi and my calf felt fine. Hmmm. I dropped it down to a 6 min mile over the next few miles and everything still felt fine. Hmmm. I was curious to see if I had any pain in my calf, so over the course of the next 1.5 miles, I dropped down to a 5 min mi. Everything still felt fine.

I have been rolling my leg muscles a TON, and I have slept with my legs up. I also took a hot bath and soaked my legs in epsom salt. Maybe that helped to sort things out.

AACK!  I've been running since the moment I hit the office.  Phone calls, people having problems, my co-worker unable to do his own job and so now I've inherited his problem.... AAACK!
At least the time is flying by... :)  It's like the entire company is making sure I feel wanted on my birthday.  :)

My foot.. my poor post-surgical foot.. hurts more now than ever before, and I just don't understand why.  Physical therapy last spring/summer helped a lot, but she said that we reached a plateau and she couldn't do any more for me.  I wonder if it's the weather, and maybe I just need to revisit PT?  I really liked my therapist, so I would be happy with this.  I guess I'll make an appointment with my orthopedic surgeon to discuss options. 
While I'm at it, I may as well make a chiropractor appointment for my back.  I really liked the last place I went, but don't feel like dealing with the PT nonsense (which.. for my foot, PT worked; for my back it was just annoying).  A few years ago I saw a chiropractor not too far from my house and I cannot remember why I stopped going to him.  I think life just got in the way.  It might be time to revisit that.  If something jumps out at me that reminds me why I stopped going, I can always stop a[...]
