Cold Season Recovery

Hello hello hello! I hope you all had a good weekend and beginning of the week! My house has officially been punched in the face by the cold/flu season. Adam slowly got it last week and his symptoms got worse as we went into the weekend. Friday and Saturday was all about resting and getting better for him. I thought I was avoiding it completely, until I woke up Sunday feeling not-so-great. Yesterday I felt awful all day and today I am finally starting to feel a bit better. I feel really dry now though. Trying to push as many fluids in as possible, making sure to take my vitamins and Airborne Immune Support Supplement. Have you gotten a cold this season? How did you get rid of it? I was suppose to give blood today, but had to cancel because I wasn’t feeling good. I rescheduled to give in a couple weeks. Did you know that January is National Blood Donor Month?

On Saturday I got a great run in on the treadmill. It felt good not to have any plans and be able to spend as much time as I wanted doing a work out. During the week I usually workout in the morning, so I have to stop at a certain time in order to get ready for work. I ran 6.3 miles and then did some sit-ups, squats, and push ups.

After my run, we made a yummy brunch. I had 2 eggs over easy, an English muffin, ham and butternut squash. Delicious!

On Sunday we went on a walk at the Erie Canal. It was lightly snowing and everything looked so beautiful outside! We walked about 5 miles. Porter loved smelling the tracks of people and animals who walked that path before us.

When we got back we decided to try to sweat out some of our cold! Adam ran on the treadmill while I rowed. We watched Top Chef while we worked out. That show can be pretty addicting!

Today I started marathon training! This morning I did 6 miles on the treadmill before work. It was hard to breath due to my cold, but felt good to get a sweat on. I had the chills this morning, so getting heated up was nice. I have run out of shows that I’m interested in on Hulu and Netflix. I’m kind of a picky show chooser. I watched 1.5 shows of Nashville this morning. It was okay, but I could be easily swayed to something else. Any recommendations?
