I think that my virus helped matters this week, as far as weight loss is concerned. I am down 1.2 pounds this week. Go me!!
My running definitely suffered though. I ran Tuesday, hours before getting sick and got a great hill workout in. I took off completely Wed and Thurs and then did an easy treadmill run Friday. I headed out yesterday with a plan of 7-8 miles, but everything seemed to go wrong.
First, I got there and realized I had forgotten both my Garmin and my i-Pod...oh no! Then, I realized it was much colder and windier than I had anticipated. Once I got started, my body just felt awful...very tired and run down. So, I only did 4.5. A year or 2 ago, I would have been happy with 4.5. But, I have my sights set on a half marathon this fall, so getting my long runs up is important right now. I did 7 last week and felt awesome, so maybe my body is still not 100% after the awful bug I had.
