Bronchitis is no fun. Running with bronchitis is even less fun. I actually aspirated ice cream while celebrating my daughter’s 14th birthday and I must have aspirated some bacteria along with it. I’ve been sick for a week now. I’ve only run a mile each day for the last week. I’m trying hard to not get frustrated and impatient with myself. I’m ready to enjoy summer. At least I’ve had some great books to distract me while I’m spending extra time lounging. I’m hoping that having more down time this weekend will help kick the bacteria out of my lungs. It’s time for it to go for sure. The week prior to getting sick, I ran 2 or more miles 4 days out of the week. It is nice to have more time to focus on myself now that school is out. I’m ready to start building up my mileage again!
