Run Down

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.

  1. I’ve just started to learn how to take a rest day to prevent a long drawn out situation that can be cured by one day’s rest in the early stages.

    Glad you feel better!
