The Power Of Positive Thought.

I am not getting sick. I am not getting sick. I am NOT GETTING SICK!

I have been suffering the past few days with a mild headache. Not the debilitaing kind, but the kind that just kind of lets you know it’s there. It has been pretty sucky. Usually my run knocks them out. But these have been persistant.

At first, I wasn’t sure what they were all about, but by late Saturday night, I had a little tickle in the back of my nose. Ugh. Don’t tell me!

Since then, I pulled out my zinc, vitamin C, and I stopped by Walmart for some Zicam. I am NOT getting sick.

Sunday morning I felt a little better. I’ll just keep up with the protocol…yeah, that’s the ticket. I caught it way early. We’ll nip this in the bud.

Sunday night? Feeling a little depleted again. I send out a message on Facebook. Please, PLEASE tell me how to thwart a head cold! I got lots of good advice. Oils. Yes. Essential oils. There must be one, or a combination of some that can help me. I’ll try them all. Nothing sounds crazy at this point.

My husband walked into our bedroom last night and nearly passed out. “What do I smell?”

Oils, honey. Essential oils. You see, I’m trying to defeat this head cold. At least I think it’s a head cold. Maybe its just all in my head.

Maybe it’s the taper. Maybe slowing down has allowed my resistance to take a powder. Maybe it got caught off guard. Oh, dear God…don’t let me get sick!

So, I just rubbed down my feet with Olbas and Oregano oil. I smell like a mentholated bowl of Italian sausage. And, I’m slurping down a cup of echinacea tea. I took some Gaba to help me sleep and optimized Saffron for my mood, and I did not run today. I’m praying that tomorrow I can get up and get in a few miles, then stretch it out in Yoga, before hitting the InfraRed Sauna. It’s only Tuesday. The race is Sunday. Plenty of time…right? Besides, I’m not getting sick anyway. Who would think such a thing?
