Under the weather
YUCK - I have come down with a cold and sore throat. I am sure that traveling last week had everything to do with it. I swear that I can usually fight a cold off at the first sign - but it was hard to fight this one. I didn't get home until 11pm Wednesday - spent a little time unpacking essentials - and then had to be to work at 7:30 am and was at a meeting outside the office for most of the day. With the time change - and flying - I was exhausted! Arggggggg!
Last night I had the opportunity to host some of my staff at a UW Badger hockey game against Minn Duluth. My employer has a suite that includes food and beverages - it is a lot of fun - it would have been better if the Badgers would have pulled out an overtime win - but that didn't happen. :-(
As a result of having a cold and sore throat - there was absolutely no way I was going to run this morning. I read about others running while feeling horrible - but i just can't do it. Probably has more to do with my age than anything else. :-(
I am running a 10k on Thursday morning - so I need to get a couple of good runs in this week. I might take a couple of afternoons off, which will make it easier to get a long run in during daylight. Speaking of afternoons off - I still have 18 days of vacation to take before the end of Feb. Sounds wonderful - but I am really busy and it gets harder and harder to find time to take off. I WILL BE TAKING THE FIRST WEEK OF JAN OFF FOR A SKI TRIP! Yahoo
We are watching the Packers blow out the Vikings - and waiting for them to pull Favre! It is a great day to sip on hot tea and watch football.
