On the Mend.

It’s been a crappy week, quite literally.

I got hit with a stomach virus earlier in the week.  The bright side is that I got to sleep 16 hours pretty much straight, but that was after a horrendous day at the office struggling to keep my shit together (pun intended).  I barely ate for three days and felt so incredibly weak. It was awful.

I really do hate being sick.

Today was the first day that I felt almost normal. So I decided I needed a run.  I didn’t think I’d be able to do more than 2.5-3 km so I was quite surprised when I reached 4.1 km and realized I could probably squeeze out the last kilometer and make it a 5km day.  That last kilometer hurt.  My calf/shin issue is still with me but it’s getting better, a little too slowly for my liking, but beggars can’t be choosers.

I had really hoped to start increasing my runs/week by now but that just isn’t happening yet thanks to the shin splint and this most recent bout of the stomach flu.  I can only hope that May will be a better month for running.
