Monday things took an interesting turn…. I woke up feeling totally ok but I had this weird thing on my eye. It was itchy and uncomfortable and a little red. By the afternoon my eye was SO annoying and my throat kind of hurt. I decided to go to a walk in clinic since all of my coworkers convinced me I would soon be dead from shingles.
Luckily I would survive. I had an infection on my eyelid which supposedly can be treated with the ointment I got but what else? Oh just strep throat and a sinus infection. Like I said, Monday morning I was fine. Monday evening? near death.
I am getting pretty good at nursing myself back to health. Lots of chicken soup, vitamin C, fluids and rest. Monday night I did just that…nursed myself back to health!
I swear by the rest part of getting better. I may or may not have went to bed at 7 Monday night. Shut up about it.
I woke up yesterday still wonkey eyed but feeling MUCH better! Even today I still have the skank on my eye so I am not sure the deal. I think I might need to go back to the doc to see what it’s all about.
Besides being Nurse GM, yesterday I had my very first coaching experience!
I loved it. I didn’t take any pictures since it was my first time but trust me, I kicked everyone’s butt, in a good way! The final workout looked like this:
12 minutes AMRAP
10 pull ups
12 box jumps
I was definitely nervous going into it but once I got started it felt so natural! I started with a warm up, light stretch and then…show time. Everyone that participated did great and I got awesome feedback about my coaching skills! Like I said, I loved it!
On the workout front….
I am really taking advantage of the whole “give yourself a full 2 weeks to recover after a marathon” idea. I haven’t had any hard runs… and now I am itching to get out there. BUT, I am being smart and sticking to little running with lots of cross training! Today I did an easy 20 minute run followed by 40 minutes of the elliptical.
Notice something different about those pictures…
hint hint… I might be cheating on my beloved Asics….and I am not regretting it…
What’s your favorite way to cross train?
