Well my adventure suffered a severe set back. I think that I actually had swine flu. Those around me argue that it was severe reactions to the pollen that has infested the state of Rhode Island. The effects have lingered for some time. In essence, they sidelined me for 10 straight days. I still have substantial respiratory and sinus issues, but I’m now able to run for about a mile and a half before I need to stop. I just can’t go any further without feeling like I may have a stroke.

I’m running the mile and a half at an 8:15 pace, just trying to keep my legs fresh. They still feel good, and my conditioning doesn’t seem to be problematic. I just can’t seem to breathe properly. Oh well. We are back, and soon I will be better.


Quick Run Through the Park

I had a nice little three mile run first thing this morning. I just shot down the road to the park and made a nice loop around the pond and up by the dog park. Some lady flipped me off for running in the road, but besides that it was uneventful. It took me less than 30 minutes and more than 25 to finish up.

I’m thinking that the pollen here in North Carolina is playing with my breathing a bit. In Alabama, we have already gotten through this mess, but I am definitely having allergy issues. It was a good start for the week.
