Some time off

Well, it finally happened. I got sick.

It wasn't one of those completely out of comission, lie on your back, out of it, but enough to stop me in my tracks.

The worst part of me getting sick is I get post nasal drip. This prevents me from sleeping, as I wake up throughout the night coughing. On the bright side, I got caught up on my late night television. I am on the verge of ordering every informercial exercise piece of equipment out there.

I especially get a kick out of the guy who has this dance routine on videos which will give you washboard abs.

I guess I like informercials because of being in sales. I never buy any of it, I just like the pitch. Sham-Wow is also one of my favorites. I love that guy.


I guess only running 6 miles in the last 7 days will not hurt in the long run, and may actually help. I'm not worried.

The more I think about Ice Age 50 and Kettle 100, the more I think that Larry's 100k in April is a good idea for a training run. I am just concerned that this would require forging an icy river, chest deep, at 3am.

The timing of this race works well, and would only require a few super long runs in March.

My only obstacle at this point is work. I will be on the road 4 out of 8 weeks in Feb and March. I don't do well with training and traveling. I guess I have to suck it up and deal.

Tomorrow crosses that winter hump into February. I am very happy that we are almost to March.

There's a lot of sick germs going around. I started feeling like I was coming down with something this week too, but I was too busy at work to be sick.

The week off won't hurt your plans.

Sounds like the bug I had... Took me out fully for 6 days and another 3 days before I felt close to normal. Good luck!

I like the sound of "almost to March". Get well.

The great question of the age: Who is louder and more annoying? Billy Mayes selling Oxy Clean (and everything else) or the Sham Wow Guy?

Hope all is well now.
