it's been way too long...

Okay, so apologizes for being MIA! I've had a lot of things going on! From the last post- I received my running skirt and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I am saving up my money to get another one! They are just so dang cute and really comfortable to run in!

So, on the 27th of March I ran 27-28 miles! It was ridiculous! It felt great- but the first 3 miles were all in snow. I ran with my friend, Holley and we had my husband drop us off in the Canyon on my favorite running trail and we had no clue that there would be snow there! About a half mile into it there was just so much snow! It was packed like 2 feet high! We "trotted" through it and it was so exhausting! I think that tired me out and I was really feeling it when I hit mile 20! Ah! Anyways, it went well. I was sore for a little while afterward, but I was pleasantly surprised with how fast my legs jumped back!

However, bad news... I got really sick. No fun. I went to the Dr's because it's so close to the marathon!!! He told me that I have walking pneumonia... great. So, I've been out of commission for over a week! I've been on antibiotics and syrup with codine in it. To sum it up- it has been awful. I finally felt good enough to try a run last night in the gym. It was tough on the lungs. I'm really nervous for the marathon. My goal this week is to get my lungs back in check and to make sure I'm feeling better. The little goal time that I had for the marathon has gone out the window and now I'm just hoping to finish.

To make matters worse... it has snowed here 3x in the last 5 days! It's April!!! It is usually very warm here by now. Here is to hoping the weather gets better!

Is this another blog site? Wow, I barely figured out how to map out a running route on daily mile!
Good job on your last run, I hope things get better for you by next week.
That sucks about the snow! I hate snow! We have been lucky to have sunny warm weather the past few day- love it!!!
Have a good day!

I came over to sympathize with you on the lung infection! Yuck! I had the same darn thing a month ago and am still not fully recovered.
Take good care and wow your marathon is coming fast!
