I am at the ending stage of a cold. Colds are such bummers. There is nothing good about them. I even had to take a day of a work because I was not doing well. On Thursday I was teaching a group fitness class and I had to stop in the middle of it. I thought I was going to pass out. My body did not want to move anymore. I went home for a quick nap and came back to work for a big meeting. The meeting never happened because the speaker canceled during the meeting. It was very frustrating. I worked all week for the meeting and the gentleman ended up not coming, and it was so last minute.
Friday was the day I ended up taking off. My body was not cooperating. I slept from Thursday afternoon till about Saturday morning. I had the chills, cough, sore throat, headache, and cold sweats. On Saturday when I finally woke up, I felt a lot better. I still have a cold but I am more able to function.
On Saturday I went to work to get a quick run in. It was a tough run but I got in. I knew I was still sick but I had the "cold sweats" while running. Not a great feeling but I did it. I ran this morning for my long. It was nice to have a micro-cycle this week. My chest was definitely tight during the run. Since I really did not get my usually workouts in during the week, it felt like I had not run in a year. My legs felt heavy. In retrospect I probably started back too soon after not feeling well. I am the worst on taking time off. I had surgery on my foot during college and did everything I could to get out on the golf course. I was practicing my putting on one foot because I was not to but any weight on my left foot.
I am feeling a lot better. I am glad it was nothing worse than a cold. I hate missing work for illness but sometimes you just have to take off for the good of your health. I just think it makes me feel lazy when I take off for sickness. So weird.
