I HATE the flu (Read 95 times)

    I really do! Came down with it last Thursday. Went for my run and could not believe how sore my whole body was. Stopped after 2 miles. Then my 18 month old got it that night and a couple days later my hubby. My 9 and 6 year old thankfully have missed it. Finally was able to run 3 miles tonight.  So glad everyone is getting healthy and I could run!

      Between the flu and bronchitis I didn't run for almost 2 weeks.

        Of course lots of people say "flu" when actually they just have a cold or a cough. I'm not suggesting that this is the case here, but it often happens...

            Or "the flu" is gastroenteritis...and not influenza at all....

             

            I had the flu maybe 3-4 years ago, the year where the shot didn't end up protecting against the strains that actually ended up hitting hard.  I had 2 weeks of barely being able to leave the sofa, then another 3-4 of persistent lung crap.  I made at least one trip to urgent care for a breathing treatment.  Granted, I also have asthma, so my experience with any lower-respiratory bug is generally on the more severe end of things.

              I know, right?  I got it, or something like it, about three weeks ago, kept me on the couch for almost a week.

               

              The worst part was the aches, which made even thinking about running painful.  Instead of going out for a run, I'd spend that hour or so laying there, drawing up detailed plans for acquiring applesauce and Diet Coke with the least amount of movement possible.
