Hit and miss

Geesh, I have been sporadic lately with the working out. I didn't get a chance to run all weekend because I was still feeling like crapola and I had a ton of things to do. This being sick thing is for the birds. It has been wicked awful trying to act like a normal human being while feeling like I am going to die because my head is so stuffed up.

But luckily I think I am really starting to kick this illness. I ran tonight and it was pretty good. I've found that even though I haven't worked out as often as I want recently, I have been putting more intensity into these workouts, which is a trade-off I can live with, for now anyway.

Switching gears, I got my score for my first practical exam that we took more than a week ago. Our professor warned us that this test is the one students usually do the worst on, but it's OK because our lowest test score is automatically dropped. I got 83 out of 100, a B, which I was fairly happy with. A lot of people did a lot worse than I did. It was a hard test, with some tricky questions that I missed. But life goes on and I am sure I will do better on the next test.

Today's stats:
Run:
Distance: 3.5 miles
Time: 37:30
Pace: 10:42 minute/mile

Glad you are feeling better!! Are you taking anything (like allergy medicine) to make sure you don't keep getting sick? Does the doc know why you keep getting sick?
