Down and Out

sick

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.

I became a father at 32 years. Hadley Elise has given me so much joy and has been another chapter in my life telling me not to be afraid. Fatherhood is awesome.
