Taxing the Immune System

After a poor night sleep, I woke up with a sore throat and a ping pong ball size knot on my neck.I spent the morning spring cleaning my kitchen, then managed to get out for my10K around the block.

I wasn't feeling the love all that much, as it was already 11 am and getting pretty warm. I did manage to run up more of the hills before turning it into a walk.

I walked the last .4 miles of my10K (my 10K is actually 6.4 miles)  and resolved considering taking Sunday off and resting. It's hard to do when you have the day off from work, and the time to get a run in.

But these swollen glands  point toward a compromised immune system, and I don't want to get sick before the Laurel Highlands Race next weekend.

I think next on the agenda is a nap.

  1. Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa ( may be another choice. i know alot of people use it, its also non alcoholic, though it's effectiveness is not as good as alcohol based cough medicine, but it's still good to use on not so serious sore throat.
