It’s been a long time since I’ve been laid up by illness for so long. The really frustrating thing is that outside of a handful of days, I never felt super sick. But just as I was feeling better, suddenly I kept getting random spikes of fever that would come out of nowhere and be over after a short amount of time. I’ve never had anything like that.
I am determined to rest and get better so I can enjoy a run during the warm weather that is supposed to be headed our way mid week!
I’m joining up with the Weekly Wrap from Holly @ Hohoruns and Wendy @ Taking the Long Way Home to share some of the good things about my week because there wasn’t a lot of activity, although there was a bit more than last week.
- Monday: Dogwalk
- Tuesday: Dogwalk
- Wednesday: Morning yoga, Dogwalk
- Thursday: Morning yoga, Dogwalk (and a sudden spike in temperature — mine, that is — in the afternoon — boo!)
- Friday: Dogwalk
- Saturday: Dogwalk
- Sunday: Shoveling a path down the driveway so we could Dogwalk

Favorites of the week
Some stress crept its way into my life towards the end of the week, but I did spend a pretty awesome birthday and got lots of relaxing in. Thanks to everyone who sent me birthday wishes — I still need to get back to y’all, but I appreciated each and every one of them. The Salt Den offers you a free session on your birthday so how could I pass that up?
Before relaxing in the Salt Den I had an excellent, relaxing massage at Myomassage. Wearing my Skirt Sports Wrapsody tights made it easy to leave the purse at home. You can use code 522CRJ for 15% of non-sale items or check out the sale (ends today, 2/18, at midnight).
And we ended the day with a yummy meal out. It didn’t hurt that this was the nicest weather I’ve seen on my birthday in quite a few years.
This week I also tried out Trader Joes Peanut Butter Protein Granola. Even though I typically make my own granola, I was intrigued. It was good (and not too high in sugar, either, although I did eat only a half a serving — but that was plenty!).
I’m wrapping it up with a few favorite blogs from this week:
- Speed Tricks from Master Women Runners
- What is this Crazy Thing Called Forefoot Running?
- 5 Things to Love About Brooks Running Launch 5
- Winter Running with Your Dog
Let’s get the conversation started:
Made any great food finds recently?
Are you expecting a heat wave next week?
How do you treat yourself on your birthday (and if you don’t, why not)?
