If there are two things that will hinder my training, it's allergies and thunderstorms. And right now, they are both hitting full force. That cough that I developed Monday after swimming turned into a runny, itchy nose with lots of sneezing. I'm about worn out from sneezing.
I was going to update last night, but we had more severe weather hit the area and were under a tornado watch. I don't like being on anything electrical during severe weather. Today and tomorrow we have sun, but the rain is suppose to return next week. When I look at the 7 day forecast, it looks pretty bleak for getting an outside bike ride.
Despite the allergies, I went to my yoga class on Tuesday night. A friend of mine is a personal trainer and offers a yoga class at our church on Tuesday nights. I've been going ever since she started it several years ago and RARELY ever miss. I love my yoga. I need my yoga. Just ask my family. So, despite the allergies I went. I always feel so much better after going.
And despite the allergies, I ran 5 miles last night (on the treadmill due to the impending storm). I prefer to run outside, but am so glad I have the treadmill as a backup. As usual, during my five miles, my nose stopped running, I could breathe just fine, and I didn't sneeze once. But once I stopped, it all came back. I don't know why that happens with me, but it does.
Today has been a day full of sneezing and a runny nose. We have a church function to attend anyway, so I'm making this a day off. Tomorrow I'll go to field day at my kids' school and if I feel like running or riding my bike in the evening I will. We'll just see what the allergies decide to do.
As far as I'm concerned, they can both go away!
