Finally I see the light....

First I must start by thanking all of you who left me get well messages.  I am very touched that you took the time to do this.  I still cannot even believe I have 31 followers!  You are all so kind.  Thank you so much.  The blogging experience is fantastic I am so happy I decided to start this.  I learn a lot from reading your blogs and I get support and I am reminded every day that there's a lot of good folks out there.

Well I am better...I think. 
I missed a lot of training and even more important things like my kids Christmas programs and my husband's Christmas party and my dear friend's birthday yesterday but I have accepted it and I tell myself at least I did not miss Christmas and this did not happen during my parents visit, trying to be positive...not always the easiest thing for this gal here.  Yesterday was my first day standing up...was shaky but it was standing!  Today I am more stable..legs still feel like Jello though...no running today :( 
My husband had to go to work and left almost no gas in the car to be certain I would not go to the gym... NO TRUST! :) I get it though.  Tomorrow I am going...even if it is for just 2 miles!

I must have lost at least 6-7 lbs...that is not good.

I'm glad you are feeling better!

It stinks that being sicks disrupted your training schedule, but isn't it cool that even with missing HALF a week of training, you still ran 12 miles that week! The average person doesn't run 12 miles in a year! I know you will bounce back into your normal running plan in no time.
