It’s time for another Ultimate Coffee Date sponsored by Deborah at Confessions of a Mother Runner and Coco at Got2Run4Me. It’s a virtual coffee (or tea or whatever your favorite beverage is) date with fellow bloggers. Be sure to check out the link-up!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you… it’s been a bit rough lately. I’ve had far more days where I’ve felt exhausted, achy and just not myself. I already deal with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, but this has felt like something else. I don’t recall the last night I felt as though I had a good night’s sleep. On Wednesday, I went to my family doctor, who after an exam, believes I have Fibromyalgia in addition to the Hashimoto’s. I am being referred to a Rheumatologist for an official diagnosis. At this point, I just want to figure out how to get some sort of balance and deal with things.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you… I made the decision to DNS my first-ever race today. I have 14 miles on the training schedule for the First Watch Sarasota Half Marathon on 3/18, and having to add on 8 miles before a 10k race was feeling stressful. With everything going on, I just feel like it’s easier to not overdo things and just do a regular training run. I hate missing Best Damn Race 10k, but I need to listen to my body and do what’s best for me.
I we were having coffee, I would tell you… I just found out this week that my employer is giving us an awesome bonus next month! It feels good to be appreciated! That bonus is going to help me take care of some bills and a new pair of running shoes. 🙂
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
