I’ve been fighting off some sort of a cold bug lately, and just generally feeling run down. I figured that it was probably just all the training, but when the sniffles started, I knew it was something more. It was almost a relief, actually. It wasn’t my training wearing me out! It was the cold that’s floating around the office!
I might be the only person happy to get sick. We amateur athletes are a little bit insane sometimes.
Okay, most of the time.
So yesterday, I took a sick day from work. I spent the day on the couch watching tv, drinking tea, and generally resting. And it felt fabulous. No work, no chores, no training, just a day of relaxing. (Well, I cleaned off the DVR by catching up on TV – does that count as cleaning?)
Today, I feel a million times better, and while I would like to be back on my couch, I don’t feel like I need to be back on my couch. Sometimes it’s good to just take a day to rest and recuperate. But it’s back to the daily grid. Lots of work to be done, both at the office and out on the road.
