The uninvited guest

So I haven’t been able to run or cross-train for 3 days.

Why? Because a stomach bug set up shop at my house uninvited and is taking it’s sweet time finding the door! And this bug has a twisted sense of humor as demonstrated by the fact that the only healthy ones in my house right now are my very energetic 4-year old and the equally (if not more so) energetic German Shepherd! C’mon now, that is just wrong!

When I went to bed last night I was determined that no matter how I was feeling this morning I was going for some kind of run…walk…shuffle. Well, that bug must have heard me cause by about 2 this morning it was clear to me that I was going to have to let go of that plan. Now one interesting thing about having this uninvited guest show up is finding myself actually missing going for a run….that’s a first for me! But while I can lie here and try to appreciate this revelation, the bottom line is it’s time for this bug to move on! My C25K plan is waiting and I have some catching up to do! Wish me luck.
