So tonight it was 40 out and clear with no rain, snow or fog. I decided to try to go for a run. I took yesterday off and did nothing this moring so a run seemed perfectly timed. I geared up and layered up and planned to go slow which was probably all I was going to be able to do anyway. Off I went and right away my legs decided to initiate lead mode which was fine by me since I really didn’t plan on much beyond a slow trot. This sickness has kicked my ass. Two days ago I did some leg exercises, good ones for a home workout I’d say. Then I rode my stationary for 30 minutes like I always do. Like I always do, I turned the resistance up then down then up and down again. This is what I usually do and in fact, I didn’t do the stand up with higher resistance but once where I usually do it 3-5 times. All in all I felt like it was an okay workout. When I sat down in bed for the night I could hardly keep my eyes open. My body felt so tired, almost too tired in my opinion. I felt like I didn’t earn the state of fatigue that I was feeling but clearly Mr. Sickness was the reason why my moderate workout felt more like a semi intense one. Funny how being sick can change how hard something can be. I can still hear some wheezing when I take a deep breath in and the cold air makes me cough not to mention the cold air still drags down my throat like rubbing a rug against the grain. It doesn’t “hurt” but it simply is rough. So I continue to be grateful for what I am able to do and I still refrain from doing two fers or pushing workouts harder because I know I just have to wait and be patient. 3 miles is 3 miles no matter how slow or hard it is and no matter how frustrating it is waiting for it all to just get better. Until tomorrow.
