This week and last week have been taken over by a cold. I spent most last week with 3 blankets on me and the heat up as I shivered between coughing fits.
Thanks to Nyquil I (and my wife) actually got some sleep last Thursday. Unfortunately I still felt lethargic and sick when I awoke. I missed all my workouts and a couple days of work as I slept away my illness.
I ran last Tuesday and didn’t get back out till yesterday.
I managed to get out the door, which is about all I can say about that. I was happy to lace up and run but it was slow (very slow). I had to take a walk break in the middle and managed to make it about 1.5 miles. It felt like my first run and 8 years of being a smoker.
Nothing great but it was a pretty amazing feat after a week of sickness. I did take this morning off but that was more because of an alarm snafu.
I hope to get back on track from here.
Tip of the Week
If you work in an office or are a student – or come into contact with humanity – it is pretty tough to avoid catching a cold. Webmd provides some tips, including washing your hands, exercise and getting a flu shot.
It is all pretty basic but I work in a small office with about 50 people. In the past couple months there are constantly 5 people sick making it difficult to avoid the viruses.
It finally got me. Hope it is the only time this year.
