Bronchitis = 1, Antibiotics = 0

I finished my antibiotics on Monday and was feeling much better.  At the time, I thought I would try running on the treadmill on Thursday or Friday.  By Thursday, I was feeling worse again.  Late Friday afternoon, I could barely talk without starting a coughing fit again.  It was so frustrating! 

I headed back to the doctor this morning.  In all that time there has been no change in my lungs.  No improvement and, fortunately, no worse.  Now I have round 2 of antibiotics and a course fo steriods to try to get my lungs healthy.  Another 7 days and hopefully I will be feeling better...please!

For 6 weeks after my last marathon, I didn't want to run.  Running was a job and took too much effort.  Even when I got back to it regularly, it took so much effort to make that first step.  Then I got sick.  Now I cannot run.  Now I desparately want to run.  Guess this is one way to get my groove back.

I really hope the medicine kicks in soon for you. I am just about ready to go in for some myself. I think the sinus infection and on/off eye thing is not going away on it's own. I just run through the whole dang thing or I would be worse to be around. But it isn't in my lungs- sorry yours is. GET BETTER! Prayers for you. -R

Oh no! I'm so sorry. I hope this round of antibiotics kicks in and you're able to run soon.
