I'm sick. I guess this is what my body has been trying to fight off for the last two weeks. I hate being sick. Ugh. I did cleansing yoga breath, drank throat coat tea, tried to get in lots of water today and of course I rested a lot. I also worked on my post cards for the postcard exchange:
I might go to sick call tomorrow to get some medicine - if I feel worse that is. If not I might wait and see if I can hold out on going to see the doctor.
Oh yeah, since I didn't blog yesterday I did not get to tell you guys about the 5K! I made it the whole way! They told us at the beginning that the mile markers were large cones (as opposed to the small ones that were everywhere else) but I never saw it and then it got to where I figured I'd been about half way so I figured I would try and see if I could make it to the end. I ended up finishing in 1:01:41...just under 20 min/mile which was the goal I had in my mind - that's the runner coming out in me for sure (runners are obsessed with numbers: number of miles we ran, time it took to run said miles, fastest we can run one mile, longest we have ever ran, fastest we have ran each distance, etc). They have the Fort Bragg Family 5K once a month (the goal is try to give the families something to do with their kids that is fun and active at the same time) so since I will probably be going to those until I leave here, I have decided to try and do each one a bit faster than the one before it. This one was rough, so next time if I don't finish any faster, but its not as difficult for me to finish I would be happy with that. If I was not a Soldier trained to do things my body didn't want to do, I probably wouldn't have finished. I didn't hurt myself though, so don't worry about that. I am doing just fine today other than sore muscles and foot cramps (yeah, I ate pickles and drank to the juice too!)
Anyways, sorry to be so short this weekend, but sickness does make me a productive girl. Hope you guys had a better weekend. "See" you tomorrow.
