The Journey Day 113 04.02.20

Day 5 of the second #90DB.

Listening to and reporting on the talk inside of my head at the start of the day: Developed some congestion overnight. Coughed in the night and had a runny nose. During the run this morning, it started with some congestion in my chest and was tight the first few laps. By the time I was midway through my run though, the tightness had disappeared and there was no more drainage. At ZERO point did I feel like I was running a fever. FUCK. This whole pandemic thing has me thinking like a hypochondriac… but I think it’s the responsible thing to do. I know I’ve been exposed to this virus through work or at the grocery store–I’ve had to have been exposed. Still no word from the co-worker that said her husband got sick over the weekend. Last time I looked, there were over 5,000 deaths in the U.S. alone. Scary shit. I’m going to notch my own symptoms to seasonal allergies–I get this way every March/April. Here we go…

Pretty productive day. I feel like I’m ALMOST back into the groove… but not completely. I’ve got to figure out how to make writing more of what I’m doing. That’s a big chunk of this #90DB–to get writing momentum in a BIG way. More left to do…
