Just scrape them out already

I am living in sinus hell.

Today, my sinuses acted up again. I was stuffy all day and my head hurt until I took some medicine. I just want to take a spoon and scrape those darn sinuses clean. OK, that sentence reminds me of scraping out a pumpkin for Halloween. How festive. But having sinus issues is getting really, really old.

The stuffiness and pressure sort of affected my workout today. I did a short Brick workout in my den, since it was storming here today. So I rode the bike for 20 minutes and got on the treadmill for a two-mile run. Well, about a mile into it I started getting a little dizzy and had to stop for a minute. I managed to finish and felt better after I cooled down.

I am thinking I might call the doctor again tomorrow to see what to do next, since we're leaving for vacation on Saturday. I don't want to be sick the whole time! :-(

Today's stats:
Stationary bike:
Time: 20 minutes
Distance: 5.25 miles

Run (treadmill):
Distance: two miles
Time: not sure, but it was around 23 minutes

Grrrr. I hate my sinuses too, but for entirely different reasons! Hope you are feeling 100% soon. Hang in there!!!

I hate to hear that this is still lingering. Once those things get a foot hold it's tough to get them out of there. You may need to rest a little harder to fully kick it, as hard as that would be to do.

Hope it clears soon, especially before vacation!

Vacation, good. Sinus, bad.

A rare vacation is a good thing. I hope you are able to enjoy it and be healthy. Are you able to search for another race?? I hope you can. Or you can just do a symbolic HM :D. (maybe when the sinuses are better)

Hope you have a fantastic time, oh biology goddess. :D

Get better, and keep up the workouts. The vacation will do you a lot of good.

maybe your sinuses will dry out while you are here on vacation :) The humidity is really low and it is warm. I'm looking forward to your visit. Yea!!!
