In which nothing happens: week in review

Ok, not really nothing. But I came pretty close. I ran errands, I did chores, I got sick. It was so close to nothing that I don’t even have any pictures from the week.

I’ve probably mentioned that it’s been a little smokey here from (fairly distant) wildfires. Tuesday was the worst so far: we could smell the smoke and couldn’t see the mountains. I am absurdly sensitive to smoke, so I was feeling tired and achy all day.

Wednesday afternoon I headed to a yoga class, where my muscles were shaky and I felt a bit off balance the whole time. It’s annoying, but it happens sometimes. Then I picked up my packet for the 5K I’ve been semi-training for.

Thursday morning I went for a short run. I felt fine before and during, but afterwards I started feeling more off balance and dizzy. I blamed it on the smoke, but by Friday evening I was definitely running a fever and didn’t even consider racing Saturday morning.

The worst part of having the fever is that I usually don’t even feel like reading. So this weekend I watched a lot of Warehouse 13 and Drunk History UK and Man vs. Food. Today I’m probably not running a fever (my thermometer is crap and I should replace it) and no longer feel like I’m going to fall over every time I stand up, so here’s to a new week.


How do you decide when not to run a race?

What do you read or watch on sick days?

  1. It sucks being sick, especially in the summer. I understand what you mean about not being able to read. Thank goodness for television. One of our local restaurants was featured in man vs. food: Melt Bar and Grilled. Love it.

    Feel better.

      man vs. food always makes me hungry!

  2. Oh no! Being sick is no fun!

    I’m actually really bad at being sick because I still try to do everything – but when I’m reaaally knocked out, I usually just sleep or laze about and do nothing because I can’t even concentrate on the tv!

      I can’t really concentrate on tv either – I put on stuff I’ve watched before and just kind of stare at it.

  3. I really hope you are feeling better! I would probably watch silly movies 🙂

      I have no tolerance for silly movies when I’m sick. My husband thinks that’s so strange.

    Being sick sucks. Glad you’re feeling better. Doing nothing helps, although it drives *me* crazy.

      Agreed, doing nothing makes me antsy.

  5. I hate being sick — especially if it gets in the way of reading because what a perfect time to curl up with a book? This smoke is/was driving me nuts. I can’t really smell it, so it feels like it’s all in my head until I try to spot the mountains.

      Ugh, yes. I have a perfect excuse to binge read, but I just can’t.

  6. Ugh, sorry you got sick. Weeks like that are a great excuse to just veg out in front of the TV, which sometimes is a nice break from reality. I hope you’re feeling better now!

  7. I don’t get sick very often (knocking LOUDLY on wood), but if I do…I spend it reading blogs (or maybe a book) and doing my nails 😉 Hope you’re feeling better!
