Day 5 - this is getting old

Day 390 - January 25, 2010

Today was the fifth straight day of having a fever of 101+. Ugggh. So, how do you keep a running streak going when you are that sick? My plan the last three days has been to load up on the motrin - wait for it to take full effect, then go out and plod through 1 mile, crawl back into bed, and sleep.

And for the record, I did go to the doctor today. They confirmed I was sick, thanks Doc, and told me it was probably viral. They ruled out H1N1 flu, which is what I thought it was going to be, but then told me the test has a 30% false negative rate. That's comforting.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to writing more about running and less about my health, so keep your fingers crossed and hopefully I will have this kicked in another day or so.
