Yesterday actually went better than I hoped! My head wasn’t quite as painful and after a morning of overcast and rainy cold, the sun finally popped out and it was quite pleasant in the evening!
Since I hadn’t slept well Monday night I knew I had to change up something so I could sleep last night. I ended up running with my group since it was so nice and I felt good enough. I really needed that! Figured the fresh air couldn’t hurt and the sunshine helped even more.
But when I got home, instead of taking the decongestant I have been using, I took a shot of Nyquil before I ate my dinner. Let me tell you, that was the best thing I could have done! About 30 minutes after I ate I was already drowsy enough to head to bed!
I think I slept about 8 hours straight! Exactly what I needed.
I’m still stuffed up this morning, but I’ll be rinsing out those sinuses before I put on my makeup and my medicine is already starting to work. If I feel good and it’s good weather, I want to try and run again tonight. Tomorrow is going to be awful weather… they are saying snow again. Ugh! But that’s Michigan in April!
Sometimes you just need to use the right tools to get you through a rough patch. My tool this week might just be Nyquil! I’m OK with that… but I need to get another bottle if this keeps up.
One thing is for sure, I’m over feeling like crud. It’s still in there, I’m just ready to battle it until it leaves! I want my clear head back! I have an appointment already for a physical tomorrow, so if it’s not better I’ll ask the professional what she recommends. Perfect timing!
Enough about being sick. I have a much better outlook on today since I slept so well! Something about sleep just makes everything better, don’t you think?
