“Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.”
– Edward Stanley
I am a little annoyed with my body today. Not in the typical female-picking-myself-apart way; but in the I-can’t-believe-I’m-F-ing-sick-this-is-totally-cramping-my-style way. I spent most of my morning trying to convince myself I am fine and didn’t catch anything, but just finally broke down and bought some pseudophed. Apparently, a fit lifestyle is not a free ticket to completely avoiding illness… bogus, right?
In reality, I should be glad I have avoided getting sick this long, especially when everyone at work has been calling out with the flu ever since the new year rolled around. However, I’m am hoping I can still head it off now that I have drugs, especially since I took a power nap today.
I can tell you one thing though, this icky sinus thing DID NOT keep me from my workout this morning!!!! That means I am finished with week 1 of INSANITY. (woot woot!) The workouts definitely get harder the more of them you do, and I think it’s primarily from your muscles getting fatigued. I definitely found the cardio pylo harder today than I did the first time I did it, but that could be partly because my body is too busy fighting off this bug to cooperate… I still got through more reps than Adam though, so that made me feel a little better. 😉 (In his defense, he’s chronically sleep deprived, and I give him props for doing it with me two days in a row now… especially when he knows I’m going to make him look bad. j/k)
It was SO NICE out today that I was more than a little bummed about napping instead of running, but I think it was for the greater good. I would rather miss one run than get more sick and miss work. Plus, I want to get over this thing and back to pushing 100%. I am just keep telling myself that spring is around the corner, and there will be many more beautiful running days. It’s so hard when you have that itch to get out there though!!!
Tomorrow is a rest day for Insanity, and I have to work (no boot camp for me 😦 ). That means rest day in general- probably the only one this week. Unfortunately I can only make one boot camp session this week (it would be none if I didn’t end up swapping a day), but at least I will have Insanity… and –fingers crossed– some running!
PS. Mike- even being sick, Insanity was STILL not harder than boot camp today.
