It was another unusual week with quite a few days off thanks to being sick. With my immune system down from last week, when the boys caught fevers it was inevitable that I would too. Come Monday I was mess, chills, sweats, the whole nine yards. It lasted until Wednesday when I finally decided to not go into work and just stay home.
Thursday came and I felt better, but was still exhausted and just worn down from everything. On Friday, I contemplated a workout on Friday, but realized that my body was still weak so instead it was just a walk with the dog.
Saturday I got back to Barre3 class and then on Sunday finally out for a run. Let’s hope this week goes a whole lot better than the last 2 because I am ready for some serious training!!
Monday – Off…definitely not feeling, but was not prepared for what was coming. Went to work and by the afternoon was freezing cold (on a 50 degree day in February – not good), so went outside for some sunshine and fresh air.
Tuesday – Attempted to go back to work, and ended up making another bad decision. Left early with the chills once again.
Wednesday – Finally made the decision to stay home and just rest. So me and the dog laid in my bed all day and I sipped on tea while watching terrible Hallmark love stories that I absolutely love. #dontjudgeme
Thursday – Fever is gone, but still super weak so another day at home. At least my appetite came back so I got to enjoy this awesome snack!
Friday – 40 minute walk with the dog. She is honestly the best walking partner around.
Saturday – Barre3 in-studio class and went simply to get out of the house and move my body. Had full intentions of taking it easy and I did, but even with that I still had to step out at one point since I felt lightheaded. Proof that just because I was no longer sick doesn’t mean my body isn’t still recovering.
Sunday – Nice long walk! Was hoping for a nice easy run, but instead my body said “slow down” so it was a nice family walk around the block. Hoping to get back into running this week as my body gets back more strength.
I’ve been feeling a bit down about my training these last two weeks and the weather has been gorgeous too, especially for February. I’m hoping this week has a positive outcome and no sickness!
