This week was all about getting healthy. I cut my mileage, and didn’t do workouts. That actually timed really well with crappy weather in Portland. It snowed a bunch, so the team wasn’t meeting for workouts anyway.
Also, I made an appointment with my PCP as soon as I got back (*plug* I have a primary care physician now for the first time since childhood and it’s GREAT, so much better than the scattershot approach with visiting urgent cares. Thank you to Julia and Emma for suggesting that I establish a relationship😘❤️). We tested for pneumonia, which I guess is a worry this year if you have chest congestion after the flu. Thankfully nothing there. Other than that, blood-work shows high lymphocytes, which just indicates fighting a virus. Sucks that there’s not much to do in that case aside from rest. But I did rest!!
Runs over the weekend felt better. The altitude boost is in effect. My legs are kind of achy still, but I’m hoping that continues to improve. And I’m looking forward to getting back on a group schedule this week.
