Oh, to be healthy again......and a few other random thoughts.

I really wonder what that would feel like???  Some of you may also read my husband's blog, therefore you might think I was just hit with food poisoning.  That was not the case.  On Friday evening I got sick, and didn't get out of bed until Sunday afternoon.  (Just in time to get sick all over again watching the Superbowl)!  Now granted, I did make a dangerous decision about eating some eggs Friday morning.  And when I was getting sick I was pretty sure it was food poisoning, but I have had that before and this seemed much, much worse.  It was violent, I had a temperature, and my whole body ached.  Anyway, without getting into further details, I now know it wasn't food poisoning.  How is this you ask?  Well Jeff is now sick.  Poor guy!

It seems like we have been sick FOREVER!  I know this isn't the worst thing in the world, but it is a big inconvenience for endurance athletes.  I signed up for my first Sprint triathlon in April, and Jeff is training for an Iroman.   We need to be healthy!  When I was sick before my marathon a friend joked with me that I pissed of the karma fairies.  It kind of upset me, but now I am thinking.  Did I?  And what can I do to make it better?!?!

Just a few other random thoughts.  While being sick/unemployed I have learned that there is CRAP on TV during the day.  I mean really, can't they put better stuff on during the day?  I can't wait to get better so I can go to the gym in the middle of the day.  Oh, yeah, or find a job so I am at work.

I went to see No Strings Attached on Friday before I got sick.  At first I thought maybe that was the cause of my vomiting.

I am doing the 100 push-up challenge with some friends.  I have done this before and was really happy with the results.  I didn't make it to 100, but my arms looked awesome!  We started today, so join on in if you want.  We are also doing the sit up challenge.

I didn't cross train much at all during my marathon training.  I really want to incorporate that into my routine.  Hence my above challenges.

I will have a distraction for the crap TV soon, the spring fashion editions of all my favorite magazines are starting to arrive at my house!

Hopefully my next post will be a healthy one!!


  1. Aaaaag

    adding cross training on a consistent basis is going to have a huge impact on your running!

    I was on the pushup rally last summer....I think I also need to return to it:)
