When I got home I actually felt like I had a little energy so I went out for a run. YAY!
Took my little dog with me. She is always so excited to go out for a run. If she sees me gather my stuff she gets all dancy, whining and even barking. The last few times I've taken her on road runs though she clearly doesn't enjoy it, so I wasn't going to take her. But she was very insistent and I felt bad leaving her behind. Since this was just going to be a short, easy run anyway I decided to take her.
The first half of the run I literally had to drag her through parts of it. Though once she could tell we were headed back home she became much more cooperative and we had a decent run. Out on the trail that dog will go for miles and miles and miles. She's also fine on roads that are not near home. But around home on our streets, she does not like it. Yet she acts like she wants to go until we get to the end of our 1000' driveway, where I really don't want to walk her all the way back. Lesson learned ... she's not coming with me around home again!
In the end it was a decent run. While running I actually felt better than I have in nearly a week. No coughing, no throat pain, no sinus pain. Though when I stopped the world did spin a little. Probably should have gone a little slower. I was planning to Shred after the run, but that little run completely drained me for the night. That's OK, I'll build up slowly again and be shredding in no time.
I think I fail at taking measurements. I checked them again this morning and while some are down .. some are up - yet feel down. My waist and arms were up at least 1/2", yet I know by the fit of my clothes that they are actually down. Waistbands that were tight a couple weeks ago are loose now. Same with a shirt that I noticed was tight in the arms recently, which fits fine now. Makes no sense. Really it doesn't take much for your tape to be in a ever so slightly different position to get different measurements. I'm going to wait until month end to post progress pics & measurements. I need to get healthy again and put in more of an effort with my workouts.
Tonight is a busy one. IF I'm able to exercise, it will just be a short stint.
