Spring is just around the corner!

It is currently 40 degrees here. Absolutely wonderful. It was even raining this afternoon... on the snow. If I wasn't overcoming some nasty thang... I would have taken advantage of this weather and the longer days and gone out for a 3, maybe 4 mile run.

However, I am feeling a whole lot better than yesterday. I think I was near death yesterday morning. If I were to have done it all over again, I would have stayed home. You're lucky I am not showing you what I have found in my kleenex's the past day or so....oofda!

This morning I packed my gym bag with the hopes of having enough energy (which I have had none of in the past few days) to do a mild workout this afternoon. I got on the bike for a while and then the treadmill. I just wanted to get myself moving a bit and get my heart rate going.

I was spent, but it felt good. Getting the heart pumpin' really loosened up that crap in my head. I don't want this bugger to get worse, though, so I am going to keep it light the next couple of days as well..

OCN: 4.1 miles
20 minutes
ORN: 1.2 miles
15 minutes

Now I am going to cook myself a deez meal and get ready for the "kick-off" of American Idol. I wonder who's going home tonight? I have a few guesses...

Glad to hear you're starting to get over the crud you had. Just a few minutes working out can do wonders. I think that was a great plan!

Oh man, I hope you are on the mend. I am suddenly fighting a sore throat. This cannot happen for my first tri. I'm so scared I'm going to get the full blown crap and have no energy.

Hang in there, spring has got to be soon.

It's in the 40's here today too, but it's supposed to rain.

I think the right person went home last night on Idol. What do you think?
