Back to regular trails

 Late this morning, I went to the park and ran 7 miles on the trails.  Nice clear weather in the 60's and a lot of people at the park.

 This was the last day of my COVID quarantine.  I went to the park about noon and ran 3.3 miles on the empty south perimeter road.

Back to the south perimeter trail

 Because of COVID, no church this morning.  So, late this morning after watching Houston Marathon coverage on TV, I went to the park and ran 4 miles on the south perimeter trail.  I saw a couple other people, but there is plenty of room for adequate spacing.

Cold and windy

 It was in the mid-40's and very windy when I went out to the park early this afternoon.  To avoid people, I went out to the outer parking lot and ran the south perimeter jeep trail.  Two and a half miles out and back for a total of 5 miles.  Still no fever and just a little sinus drainage.  Good luck to all my friends running the Houston Marathon tomorrow.

Positive

 I was surprised about midnight last night when I received an email saying that my COVID test was positive.  I called my doc this morning and he told me to keep taking the medication he prescribed for a sinus infection.  No fever for 3 days now, just some sinus drainage, sore throat and occasional coughing.  I went out to the park late this morning and ran 4 miles on the trails, making sure I stayed clear of everyone.

No COVID test results, yet

 Hopefully, my COVID test results will be in soon.  I have not had a fever since Tuesday, so I expect the sinus infection diagnosis was correct and the prescribed medication is working.  I would be very surprised if the COVIED test results come back positive.  In the meantime, I met up with the group at the park this evening and ran 3.l miles on the roads.

Trails after COVID testing

 Even though the doc thinks I have a sinus infection, he recommended COVID testing.  So after getting tested late this morning at a kiosk, I went straight to the park and ran 4 miles on the trails.

Hard 3 miles

 I had a doctors appointment this morning, by phone.  My temp was over 100.  He diagnosed my problem as a sinus infection and prescribed medication.  However, he wants me to get tested for COVID.  I have an appointment tomorrow morning.  I met up with the group at the park this evening and with a fever was tempted to run one mile.  I ended up running 3 miles on the park roads.

Empty trails

 I went out to the park late this morning and ran 3 miles on the trails.  Never saw another person on the trails.  Today marked 8 months on my current running streak (never less than a mile).  However, today also marked 4 months of running at least 3 miles a day.  Tonight, I have a fever, presumably a sinus infection.  Hopefully, I can see my doc tomorrow.
