off. i'm legitimately sick again -- this is the third time in less than three months (coincidentally, [or maybe not], all three times have been right after i returned to ATL after vacation).  

in between the extra sick times, i've had this slow burning cold (cough and congestion) that i can't seem to shake. james seems to think it's a sinus infection, while i'm blaming my dentist for giving me a throat massage. oh, that's not a thing? ...that's what i thought... 

my [new year, new me] energy burst will have to be postponed until next week

off. still sick. i actually attempted to run today but only made it to the end of the driveway before i realized it was really dumb. also, it was ~10 degrees with the wind chill. --> !

the most annoying thing is that i'm in the middle of a shoe test and i need to be running lots!

on the upswing -- i ran 1 mile today. 

i watched james run in the extra yard 5k. it was 20 degrees out so i stayed in my car and cheered from the window like a mom. but i did eventually get out and run to the finish line and then back to the car and i stayed upright the whole time so i'm definitely improving. 

the prize for this race was two tickets to the ncaa football national champioship game at merc benz stadium tomorrow. this has to be one of the most valuable 5k prizes out there. my source (emperor searcy) tells me that tickets are selling for an average of $1500 a piece (this is upper bowl!), and lower bowl tickets are going for $4000+ per ticket. one could buy two fairly decent used jeeps with that money.

james ran well, but he did not win the tickets.

7 -- lullwater loop. my legs feel very spry after all those days off. all of my [various issues] seem to be clearing up nicely. my first goal of the year is to maintain full health for 30 straight days.

snow run!

atlanta is shut down yet again. we got about 2 inches of snow, but it dropped to 13 degrees overnight and will not get much above 20 today, so the roads are actually legitimately bad.

there are currently several cars piled up at the bottom of a hill near our house. one of them went straight through someone's hedges and into their front yard. there were cars crashed against curbs and up on the sidewalk on the route where i run, so i was a bit worried i was going to get smooshed myself. but i didn't. 

now i'm going to make soup and apply for 100 jobs

am - 20 minute run around a cold, dark park in lilburn, ga.

i'm attending a USATF level 1 coaching school this weekend, and the schedule is very [wapoosh] -- today is 8am to 10pm. my hamstrings are about to burst out of my legs and make an escape.

lunch: 2 miles on the track. i also did 78 lunges so i'm that lady who does lunges now.

shadyside loop. today i finished my run like a normal person instead of hunched over and whimpering. i think i'm finally done with my rebound phase after all those weeks of inconsistency from being sick.

race idea: lebron 30k

leisurely lullwater, feeling tired. i've been up for 3+ hrs the past two nights. i used to have pretty severe sleeping issues in 2013-14, and then again after about 6 months or so living in ATL. but that has mostly gone away and i usually sleep quite well these days, so i'm not sure what has triggered this old annoyance.
