Instead of spending Easter weekend outside, looking for eggs and having fun, I was in bed all.weekend.long! Usually I would do anything for a relaxing day, but this is not fun.
It started Friday morning with a headache and my throat hurt and I was tired. I took some vitamins and went to bed early and even meet my running group on Saturday. Instead of a 10 miler, I cut it down to a 6 miler and I didn’t feel too bad. Once I was at home and showered it got bad! My headache was so bad I couldn’t open my eyes and I started coughing and my ears hurt and even my skin hurt. Sunday was even worse and the dry cough was getting so bad that my whole body hurt.Even just touching my skin hurt.
My biggest concern was that I caught something during my trip in Kenya, so I went to the doctor today, just to make sure, it’s just a cold. They took some blood and said, it’s acute bronchitis Bronchitis sucks!
I guess that means no running this week! At least I have time to catch up on some blog reading.
Have you had a bronchitis before?
How long did you take off from running?
