Sorry, I have been a little MIA in the blogging world. I am tired of blogging about being sick and not being able to run. I don't enjoy reading blogs where it's "I am always sick..." and now it feels like I am turning into that blog.
I wasn't able to finish my 17 miles on Saturday. I started feeling sick at mile 4, pushed until I was at 11, and then couldn't finish. I felt sick the rest of the day. On Sunday, I had all my old symptoms back from my good friend Giardia. I didn't go to work on Monday and stayed home feeling like garbage all day. I called my doctor, and he doubled my antibiotics and told me it should do the trick. Guess if you don't kill it completely it will stay with you and wait 2-3 weeks to make your life hell again when you least expect it.
So I guess on a good note, it wasn't just because I was weak that I couldn't finish my run. I was legitimately sick again. I really hope to kill this stupid parasite and move on with my fitness goals.
Sorry for the constant "I am sick" blog posts. I really don't like being sick. I promise.
