Stop with the title stealing, Kate! This one's Tammy's..
Sick really sucks.
On Monday I felt great. On Tuesday I was congested, feverish and pathetic. On Wednesday and Thursday I tried to kick this cold into next year, but it hasn't happened yet. Now it's Friday and I haven't exercised for two days. I'm feeling nauseous from the cold/congestion and bloated from the carbs I've been chowing down on. I'm still feeling too sick to move my butt and I'm really worried about my 20-miler scheduled for tomorrow. I don't know whether to do it, postpone it (til Sunday/Monday or next weekend- though that will mean doing it in a different city the day before a 4k tri-run). Any ideas? Oh- and between now and Tuesday, I have to review several thousand documents.
I am glad this has happened now, and not next week- you know you're a grown up when you're glad to be sick on Easter, because at least it interferes less with work- but I'm still grouchy that it had to happen! I'm hoping that the enforced rest will do me good, that my fitness won't go glug glug down the gurgler and that this growing "doughnut" (thanks E-speed) will keep me moving in.. Yes… TWENTY TWO DAYS TIME!
Update: went for a short run. still sick. but legs remembered what to do (sort of). am going to get a good night's sleep and see how I feel tomorrow morning- if I'm still congested I will postpone til Sunday/Monday and will head into work instead- oh joy
