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!
