In the 5 minutes before I left the house, I used 10 tissues, and I'm not even exaggerating. During the 37 minutes that I was running, I stopped to blow my nose ONCE. Apparently my body was too busy producing sweat to produce phlegm. Awesome.
If I had known how much better I was going to feel after a run, I wouldn't have skipped my workout on Tuesday. After all, I only had 2 miles on the schedule. I can do almost anything for 25 minutes! Why not run? So, I know for next time. Sometimes, pushing through is the best way to go.
(Granted, it's now 4:34 pm, my nose is stuffy, I'm coughing my head off, and I'm exhausted, but man did I feel good for a few hours earlier today!)
Onward and upward.
