I am still recovering from being sick. This stupid cold just won’t get out. Life is so hard!
Actually, I’m pretty lucky. I only felt awful one day, which I consider a win. But the lingering symptoms are starting to get on my nerves.
The worst part is that now that I’ve found my motivation to workout, my body is betraying me. My planned run this weekend did not go well. No energy to keep going. I made it a whopping two miles before the coughing won out. Plus even while I was running, my pace was almost 90 seconds per mile slower than normal. Apparently all my energy is going to getting better.
The lesson here is that I should be resting. By pushing myself, I’m probably just making the cold symptoms last longer. Good job, self. There’s no magical cure for a cold, so I just need to suck it up, let my body do its thing, and then get back to training.
But I don’t wanna.
