One Week to Columbus

I can't believe the weekends always seem to go by so fast!  I did absolutely nothing productive this weekend!  Well, almost nothing.  The weekend was beautiful in Chicago.  Around 70 and sunny yesterday and 60 and sunny today.  I was feeling much better after being sick with the flu and a cough the last two weeks.  I still have a cough but that's mostly it.  I still don't have the lung capacity when working out but it will get better as I get better.

I went to my weight watcher meeting yesterday after not going for two weeks and I lost 3 pounds.  I was pretty happy considering I wasn't able to work out much the last two weeks since I was sick but I was still able to eat!  It wasn't one of those illnesses that you can't eat and you lose tons of weight!  lol.

I probably botched all of my weight loss last night though with a night at my cousins and friends!  Wine, wine and more wine! 

I have one week until the Columbus Half Marathon.  I'm a little nervous because I've only run about 2 miles a few times the last few weeks.  I'm procrastinating a "longer" run today.  I cough too much in the mornings right now to run so I was waiting until this afternoon.  I'm going to try a 5 mile run today and see how that goes.  That will be my longest run for this week before the half.  A week ago I didn't think I would even be able to do it but I think I can, even if I can't do it as well as I would normally be able to.  I'm a little scared though.  It's a tough run and it's tougher when you have been sick!

Have a good Sunday evening.  I'll catch up later in the week!
