Tonsils & Test run

Do you have any idea how annoying it is to have a blog about running when you can’t run?
Tomorrow I’m finally going to the hospital, so hopefully that will be the beginning of the end of this whole tonsil situation. I can’t wait for this to be over so I can get back to training and living! Let’s be real: my life is nothing without running (don’t take that the wrong way, what I mean is that when I don’t run I don’t feel good about myself, and when you don’t feel good about yourself you’re not really living). I don’t know when, or even if, I’ll get my tonsils removed, but I will know more after my appointment tomorrow. Personally I hope they’ll take these little devils out next week!
Last Wednesday my tonsils felt a lot better, so I thought it would be okay to try to run on the treadmill again. Nothing major, just 30 minutes. And because I have a treadmill in my bedroom I didn’t have to worry about walking out in the cold all sweaty and gross before I get home and take a shower. It honestly didn’t feel too bad (I am always scared it’ll be horrible to run again after I’ve been sick), it just felt really good to finally sweat again. But soon after my run my tonsils felt horrible again. Isn’t that just so typical?! Oh well, with my hand on my heart I’ll say that an easy 30 minute run that made my tonsils swell up to golf ball size again is better than no run and still having bad tonsils.
cold and pretty
Anyway, right now I am not running, simply because my tonsils won’t let me. But I’ve figured out that even though I can’t run right now I can still write about other things, plus I still need to write my recap on Firenze Marathon 2015! I guess this is also the perfect time to make a new header and make the about me, recap and goals pages nicer. Also, I really want to get back to reading other blogs, I’ve been so bad at keeping up with some of my favorite bloggers and I really want to catch up with everyone. If you have any blogs to recommend for me to read or anything special you want me to write about please let me know, I would really appreciate it.
And by the way, yesterday was my dad’s 57th birthday! Happy birthday to him!

What do you do when you can’t run?
Do you know any good blogs I should read?
