Because I haven't been feeling great with this cold and sinus crud (or whatever it is), last night I got myself to bed early in preparation for my long run. It's kind of funny and a little annoying to wake myself up in a sneezing fit in the middle of the night! I got up pretty early and was feeling much better. I premedicated myself with nasal spray and brought along my cough drops.
I headed over to Fairhope to meet Jeanene to get some miles in before the Phat Girlz met. We ran 8 and then I continued to run another 6 with Kat and the rest of the phatties for a total of 14 miles. It was a really great long run! I was pretty happy with my 9:31 overall pace. It was so nice to chat with these lovely ladies and leave my ipod behind.
When I got home, I ate a big bowl of Kashi cinnamon cereal with soy milk, showered, and got in bed. I slept for about 2 hours but would've slept longer if I could! Now, if I could stop sneezing and sniffling, that would be great! I really hope I get over this soon. I'll gladly embrace tomorrow's rest day!
I really need a new playlist by the way. Any song suggestions? I like all kinds!
