By Tuesday some nasty congestion had settled into my chest and I was running a slight fever. Since then I've basically been parked on the couch 24/7. Running is completely out of the question since I can't even take a deep breath right now without triggering a coughing attack. In addition to the general ickiness that comes with being sick, I am also dead tired. I can not breathe at all when laying down. Even propping myself up on a pillow mountain has not been enough. I need to be sitting if I want to be breathing, which has made sleeping for more than an hour at a time nearly impossible. Little kitty has been providing constant cuddles and comfort while I have been sleeping on the couch. She is a big fan of sleeping on my lap under the blankets.

Once I start feeling better I will try to figure out how I am going to get back into 5k training. I'm crossing my fingers that I won't miss much more than a week of training. But whatever happens, it probably won't be worse than missing the marathon last year, so I'm trying to stay positive and just take things one day at a time.
