FD149 – Can’t Breath…Get Moving…I Did It..It Worked!

Just Finished

What a great start for my day off.  I feel so productive already.  I ran 5.39 miles this morning.  That was long for me.  I sure got a long way to go, but I feel good.  I was actually awaken with a nose that I couldn’t breath from.  Surprisingly I slept good last night.  I picked up some kind of crud from someone or something around here.  I am the type of person who will suffer, because I refuse to take any medication.  I think I would feel worse if I took something. It’s not so bad, because I am use to rolling like that.

Since I forgot to turn my 10 alarms settings off on my phone (I am exaggerating, it is 5 alarm settings, really) I was awaken at 6 am.  Since I couldn’t breath, I had to get up and try to blow my nose.  So I said to self  “Your lungs will feel better if you go for your run this morning.”  And guess what?  I did.

The weather was perfect.  I am finished now and it is 9 am.  It is 70° C right now.  So it was a bit cooler when I ran.  It felt good, although I did not run at all last week.  My problem is getting started.  If I don’t start, I don’t finish.  My run weeks start on Friday, so this was a good start.  Sorry for talking circles.  Speaking of circles my route got a bit bigger.  I did not run in tiny loops today.  I ran outside (Yeah!), I ran as wide as I could on the camp while doing some switch backs, but that made the run a bit more enjoyable.

1 hr later

I got Miguel to take some pictures of me.  He has to leave in a couple of days to go back to his permanent site in Bagram.  I sure hate to see him go.  I always have fun with Miguel.  Any who,  my stomach is growling something fierce and I am afraid it is in danger of turning on itself (like a zombie stomach).  I am all about the zombies right now.  So it is time to forage for food.  You know since I ran all that way, I don’t intend to mess up my calorie burn.

Just Kidding

After all, I am looking good these days.  That is what I tell myself so I will be motivated to keep moving.  :)

You Lurvly Lizzy :)
