Well, turns out.. I wasn’t drained of energy ONLY because of my long run Saturday – with improper post run fueling.
Turns out – I was/am actually sick!
Last night was a doozy. I napped for two hours (btw.. I never nap)…and legitimately had ZERO energy.. all day long.
This little guy right here.. proved to me that I did indeed have a fever.
This fever was accompanied by lovely body aches. And a strange shot of pain that kept radiating through the right side of my head only.
Even with the 2 hour nap.. I was passed out at about 9:30 (yes… I was so tired I didn’t even watch ALL of Next Food Network Star.. thank goodness for DVR)…
I had some slight panic attacks for a number of reasons:
Scarlet Fever has made its way around my classroom. I worried I was getting strep.
I had no sub plans prepared since there are only 10 days of school left. I kind of planned on being there every day.
If I woke up with a fever and/or a sore throat/shooting pains in head/body aches.. I would not be making it in to school.
Still had no sub plans.
THANKFULLY… I received a text from my collegue as I lay in bed with this myriad of anxieties filing through my heavy head… she had an extra set of sub plans and she would send them to my room if I could not make it in.
Ahh. Sigh of relief. I went to bed.. hoping for the best.
I woke up at 4:45 ( before my alarm). Sweating. With the air conditioner on. Hmm. The room was definitely chilly. The thermometor told me I still had a fever. So I called my principal, texted my collegue.. and dozed back off.. sleeping all the way until 8:00.
So – what does one do on a sick day.. when it is a chore to get out of bed?!
Well.. the don’t take a whole lot of pictures.. thats for sure. It really wasn’t the first thing on my mind.
But – I can show you some of what I did:
Blogging, updating, scanning in old photos./Reading Blogs & Catching up on Blogger Weekends..
Whats that?! You want to catch up on my weekend?! No problem.. this weekend:
- I dove head first into my issues with Midnight Snaking
- I ran 9 miles with a NEW PDR..
- Then felt like crap the next morning because I didn’t refuel properly/was sick;
- I saw HANGOVER 2 & had PINKBERRY for the first time..
- And had a little Supermarket Sunday.
Eating the lunch I had prepared for school throughout the day…
And well.. that about sums it up.
I am feeling better for the most part (besides the pain in my head.. which is quite a nuisance.. and painful.. and is not alleviated through tylenol or ibuprofen..). My aches are gone. my temperature is almost back to normal..
Now, I am off to rest some more.. because I am fo sho going back to work tomorrow!
