Darn it, now that song will be stuck in my head all day. :-)
Well....I finally kicked enough of my cold's butt to get myself to the gym today. I was going stir crazy not being able to run....but there was no way I was going to push my luck and make myself worse. I'm leaving on Monday for a work trip...and flying while sick is horrible.
Whatever illness was left in me when I got to the gym has to be gone now. I sweat 7 gallons of fluid and toxins out of myself, and that was just during my walking warm up.
I probably lost another 10 or so when I started actually running.
I was determined to stay at the pace I'd been running before I got sick.....and if I started feeling funny....would slow down and back off.
Besides risking a slip and fall from the water running down my face and arms, I kept it up the full three miles and felt fine.
Run 2 min, walk 1 min intervals.....at a minimum of speed of 6.5 on the dreadmill.
3.01 miles, 10:04 avg pace when it was all said and done.
I'll take that! :-)
