It has been a rough two weeks lately. I guess I can't really say that it's been rough, but not the most fun. I had been sick w/congestion, snot, and a cough for a week and a half. It really hindered my workouts as I talked about a couple posts ago. I really haven't done much the last two weeks - maybe a workout here or there, but I just didn't have the energy.
I finally got over whatever it was that was bothering me. I have been hunting (deer season here in Missouri) the last few days and it hadn't really been productive. One of the days I was hunting - I was in a deer stand 16 foot high in a tree and kept getting poked with a stick when I looked left. Come to find out yesterday, that stick was either poison ivy or poison oak. I woke up yesterday and had quite the break-out on my ear and back of my head. My ear is swollen, and all poison ivy like. Not fun.
I have not ran in a while until today. I hate not being able to run, but I really couldn't do much of it lately. Today, despite my poison ivy bothering me [and I didn't know if I should or not, but I did], I went for a run. It was a cold 2.23 miles, but I enjoyed it. It was fun to run again. I could tell though after today's run that I'm going to have to start going to the YMCA to run or use the treadmill at home. I'm not a fan of running inside but I'm also not a fan of sitting and being lazy :)
Do you have any Poison Ivy treatments or remedies???
