Last week my allergies started to hit me hard. Sneezy/wheezy/eye boogery.... pick an allergy dwarf name for me. I was super excited to hit up my runner store's running group on Saturday morning, but when I woke up super congested, I knew it was not going to happen. Once I finally crawled out of bed and cleared all the bats from the balfry (anyone else's parents use this term for when you had a booger hanging out? no? just mine? that's cool.....) I realized my eyes really really hurt. Upon further inspectation gah! the light! it's blinding me! [cue blinded by the light... ie: my theme song. heh heh]
It's not uncommon for me to get eye infections when my allergies get super bad. It is uncommon for me to get this bad of eye infections. By Sunday morning I had upgraded this little bugger to the worst one evaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah (said in the Oprah giveaway voice.... fact: a lot of things are super funny when said in this voice, give it a try on a rainy day.)
Lots of ouchies. (yes I went out in public like this.....do not stare directly at the eye....)
After sleeping almost all of Saturday and most of Sunday, it appeared to stop oozing grossness, which meant one thing: time for a run! And what a run it was (heavy sarcasm). I did 5 miles per my Hal Higdon marathon recovery plan. And they were brutal. My legs and particularly my IT bands just did NOT want to cooperate. I could feel the choppiness of my stride. My heart rate was slightly through the roof. :/ It was hot. And humid. And windy. The only thing it was missing was an icy path to run on. Icky.
When can I haz my running legz back?
Monday night...still ouchies..... also EXTREME CLOSE UP (just say no to da drugz.....)
What your pupils are supposed to be the same size?? No one told me that....
