SUCK IT Sickness ... I'm Back!!! (Sorta)
It was amazing how much attention my last post received about a recent trip to the clinic and the volume of prescribed medication I left with. Equally amazing is how my wife is always right. She read it when I first put it online and immediately remarked, "You're gonna stir up a hornets nest with this one!" I looked at her, probably rolled my eyes or did that dismissive "ppffsssttt" sound thing, and said, "No it won't, it's just a little story about the clinic!" Me wrong. Michael right. All too often the scenario in our house.
But I've moved on, taken my medicine - literally (but not all of it) - and feel much better. I even started slowly working out this week, but mostly indoors to avoid the Antarctica like ... ALMOST APRIL ... temps outside. Actually it's not that bad, just somewhat below normal. But I still don't want the cold air on my lungs for a while. So I ran my last two runs on the treadmill. Here was today's Tempo Workout ...
2 mile warmup @8:20 & 7:50
1 mile @7:05/pace
5 miles @6:25/pace
1 mile cool down @8:30/pace
It definitely didn't set the world on fire, and albeit on the treadmill, it was nice to build a little speed again and sustain it for a few miles without hacking up half of my right lung. So anyway ... down for a while ... but surely not out ... SUCK IT SICKNESS!!! I won today!!!
... be great today!
