Well, the good news is I got up off the couch and completed 7 miles today. It was slow, yes indeed, but I ran about half of it and feel good for doing something.
The bad news is the chest congestion just isn't going away. I wheezed for much of the run and had to stop to cough a few times. I sucked on cough drops, which helped, but I didn't bring any water. By the end of the run, I was feeling quite nauseated by the combination of running on a diet of Halls cough drops.
But it's been a good day. I've read a new book -- new to me but ages old; "Camille" by Alexandre Dumas -- and enjoyed a quiet Sunday. It's good to read for pleasure once again!
The diet is going well; I've eaten my way through my bananas and blueberries and squash and need to replenish tomorrow. It's always a joy when I actually consume the fruits and vegetables and not have to throw them out because they've gone bad.
I'm going to try a DVD workout tomorrow and see how that goes....haven't done that since Jane Fonda in the 1980s!
