No Running Last Week
Sad Face, Sad Face!
Early last week with the forecast frigid deep freeze temperatures forecast, I planned a couple days of no running. Alas that turned into a full week of no running when I caught a nasty cold. What I though was just a mild head cold morphed into drippy eyes that had me to the doctor seeking medication.
Thankfully the doctor visit was short: cold, not flu; compounded by my sinus alergies; drippy eyes viral not bacterial. Treatment: new allergy medication, saline nasal cleanse, eye drops and ... no running. It seems that physical exertion negatively affects the body's ability to fight infections. And I thought going out for a run helped 'sweat it out'. Who knew? Lots of people apparently including Sally who had a heck of a time not saying "I told you so!" (I think she said it in her mind though).
Symptoms all gone now and I was out for my first run this morning.
Happy Face, Happy Face!!
Until next time...
