General aerobic + speed - 8 miles w/ 10 x 100 m strides.

6:09 am, 42°F, 28% humidity, winds calm.

I woke up once during the night with a coughing fit. I didn't feel so great when I got up this morning. I decided to take my temperature and if I had a fever, I wouldn't run. I kind of hoped that I had a fever so I wouldn't have to run. But I didn't have a fever, so I had no excuse and had to run.

I felt okay while I was running, I guess, but I don't feel so great now.

I ran my 4 mile loop and then a little out-of-the-way route to the track, did the strides on the middle school track, and then ran another out-of-the way route back home. I saw Barbie, who was out for a walk, both when I was on my way to the track and when I was leaving the track. I saw my third son walking to school while I was on the track with one stride still to go.

You should've had a hot drink (coffee or tea) before taking your temp. I used to always do that as a child so I could stay home and not go to school! It makes your mouth warmer!

I don't drink coffee or tea. I guess hot chocolate would do the trick. But the point would be to trick the mom, right? And I'm the mom, so I'd only be fooling myself.

I've been out of the loop, so I'm not sure when you changed your blog title, but I love it. Floyd is one of my favorites.

Sorry you were feeling cruddy. You did a great job pushing through the wall and getting out there to run.

Hope you're feeling better very, very soon. The week-end is no time to be sick!

From CookieLegs on Fri, Apr 09, 2010 at 13:49:55 from

Nice run with the strides thrown in - especially when you're not feeling that great! Perhaps you should rename your blog "Give me fever"? Hope you feel better tomorrow.

From Michelle on Fri, Apr 09, 2010 at 14:20:17 from

Sorry you aren't feeling well. It is a bummer to be sick especially when it is so nice outside. You are very dedicated to get your run in even when you aren't feeling good.

From RAD on Fri, Apr 09, 2010 at 14:44:21 from

wonderful paces on those strides, especially being sick! I hope you wake up feeling better tomorrow!!

From Kelli on Fri, Apr 09, 2010 at 18:20:02 from

I woulda faked a fever! Sorry you are feeling cruddy, take care so it does not get worse.


From Bonnie on Fri, Apr 09, 2010 at 20:02:18 from

I hope you feel better soon Carolyn.

I predict that one day your going to strike up a conversation with Blondie and end up being good, lifelong friends, and go on ocean cruises together when you're in your seventies.
