I cannot tell you how it good it feels to have some life back in me after last week’s illness. Thursday and Friday were rough, but I’ve perked up a little every day since. Frankly, I cannot remember feeling that run down and sick in a long time.
The strep is all cleared up — whew! — and the aches have gone with it. My back feels 10-times better; I can safely say it’s about 90 percent there. The combination of the strep and the back issues just knocked the wind out of me, and I think each was exaggerated by the other.
I have a long weekend getaway planned, so I think I’m going to play it safe by continuing my short one-mile “woggles” until I’m back home.
What’s a woggle? So glad you asked. First, it’s very attractive: Think slow motion,
waddle-y running. I’m talking snail’s pace. For me, it’s a jog-walk combo that gets me through that one-mile minimum right now.
SIDE NOTE: I wanted to call what I’ve been doing “joggling” but when I looked it up, I discovered that it’s actually a thing: A joggler jogs and juggles all at once. Seriously. It’s real.
If I feel up for something more, I’ll do it. For now, I’m playing it safe because I cannot deal with feeling that down and out again any time soon.
And I think my husband would kill me if I overdid it too quickly. (Thanks for holding down the fort, hubs!)
