I Sound Like Daffy Duck

My head cold is tenacious. I've had it for three days now, and it's still going strong. If anything, it's picking up steam. Of course, the fact that I ran 16.2 miles on Sunday, and yesterday logged 21.3 miles (60 min.) on a recumbent bike plus did a 20-minute session of free weights probably doesn't help.

But I really thought that sleeping a solid 9 hours last night and resting today (that's right! I'm not totally crazy) woud knock out the cold out for good.

But nooooo. I wish I could unscrew my nose and drain it. It's red and raw from my blowing it repeatedly. I somehow don't have any Tylenol or cold & sinus over-the-counter medication with me. Perhaps because I think I'm super-human and don't need no stinkin' meds.

Well, I did find two aspirin in a dark little corner of my toiletry bag. But I took them days ago.

Onward: Tomorrow is my speed workout. I forgot to bring my marathon-training plan with me to Tahoe, so I dont' know what's on the schedule. But 10 or 12 X 400 sounds pretty good. That is, if I feel better. I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but if I still feel crappy tomorrow, I'll postpone the speed workout until Thursday.

  1. What a bummer to have a cold when you are on vacation. Tahoe is not the moon - send someone out for meds! My personal favorite is nasal spray. It is more targeted, less systemic and it doesn't make me crazy.

    Hope you feel better soon.
