on sunday i felt strong enough to do strike! i told myself that i could modify it and not be so intense as i normally would. i did a 6 pound bar rather than a 9 pound bar. but during class i found my intensity level to be what it normally would be, and having to scale back when necessary. unfortunately, i don't think i was ready for such a hard core workout.
by sunday afternoon i had a runny nose. monday morning i woke up with a sore throat and went to work feeling like crap. went back to the doctor that afternoon and was told that what i have is most likely viral since the antibiotic's didn't kick it all the way. was told to get some OTC sudafed, and pain reliever, followed by a prescription for a nose spray, and penicillin...but only take the penicillin if i get a fever.
i was also told to take some time off from the gym. give my body some good 'ol TLC, sleep, soup, relax.
that was heart breaking to hear. really. and i didn't really listen.
i worked out tonight. although i will say it was a very moderate workout. only 40 minutes on the treadmill, and i only ran once. in that 40 minutes i only did 2.5 miles. that's nothing. then i went and relaxed in the hot tub for about 15 minutes, which was super nice.
i'm hoping to kick this crap once and for all. ...after all tomorrow is a pretty big day!!!
