Fast forward to Friday morning around 6 am. I was messing around in the pantry, and after leaning down to pick something up I had a HORRIBLE pain in my lower back. The same spot that hurt briefly the night before on my run. Uh-oh! The pain continued through Friday, Saturday, and part of Sunday. That meant no running for me. :( No bueno all the way! I missed out on 15.5 miles of running and logged only 7.5 miles for the week.
My back is feeling so much better, but too bad I have a disgusting cold holding me back now. I was in bed last night by 8pm. The powers of Nyquil and the effect it has on me. I could barely hold my eyes open 20 minutes after I took it. I still feel pretty blah today. I'm hoping to feel better by this afternoon and get in a run.
In the meantime, I'm going to continue loading up on cold meds and cough drops.
P.S. I was watching Grey's Anatomy the other day---LOVE this season, and they played a song I hadn't heard in ages. A VERY GOOD song at that!! Give it a listen...you won't regret it! It's by Rilo Kiley and is called Portions for Foxes. The name of the song is weird and so is the video, (Very strange video--I just watched it for the first time!!) but the song is so good!!!
