I was very fortunate to wake up this morning with my temperature back down where it should be, and no dizziness when I got out of bed. It was like waking in the morning to see a beautiful, calm blanket of white snow the morning after a blustery and frightening blizzard. I knew I made it through my illness and the worst was over! Immediately I wanted to jump back into my normal routine involving structured meals, to-do tasks and, of course, running. I tend to become a bit obsessive about not skipping a run unless it is a planned day off in my running schedule. I had to have a loving talk with myself this morning to convince myself that I am strong and beautiful and I will be better off by not running today just because my fever was gone. I admired the strength of my calves, my quads, and my core. I love my body and wanted it to heal one more day, and my body loves me back because of it!
