Post-holiday blahs

I think I am getting the cold that my parents have been fighting. It seems everyone in Humboldt County either has the cold or that icky stomach flu.

I have also been feeling the annual post-holiday letdown I seem to get every year. It's that whole feeling of emptiness that the festivities are over for the year, you know? Just ... blah. I will get over it, but it might take a few days.

Oh, I do want to clarify two things about my previous posts:

1.) I shouldn't have said that my Wednesday run was really slow. But it certainly felt slow while I was doing it, probably because my mind was racing faster than my feet could. So that's probably why I described it as being slow. I didn't mean to upset anyone or say their pace is slow. I am certainly NOT the speediest person around and I didn't mean it to sound like I am normally some awesome runner. LOL!

2.) When I said my running tights keep me from jiggling, I didn't mean it the same way a guy would. I meant it keeps my thighs and butt from jiggling around. Sorry for the confusion. ;-)

OK, that is it. I did ride the stationary bike for a few minutes tonight despite not feeling too great. I am off to shower and head to bed.

Today's stats:
Distance: 5.02 miles
Time: 20 minutes

"I didn't mean it to sound like I am normally some awesome runner." What is this Cr@p? You are an awesome runner, time is all relevant. There was no offence taken regarding your speed or time, it is as you indicated that some days feel faster than others for a number of reasons.
As for the tights keeping your butt and thighs from jiggling, that is something that I think I will not touch ;) However, I am sure there is not much to jiggle anyways.

LOL! It wasn't that I was worried about you saying I was slow, but rather making sure you know I KNOW you are speedy :-) And I was talking about my butt jiggling too. What did you think I meant? ;-)

Regardless of how slow or how fast you are, you are still a runner. The most important thing is to keep running.
