Just as I was getting back into my Freeletics groove, I’ve been struck down by some weird virus/bug. It’s one of those woolly headed, sore throat, headache kind of bugs. I’m lethargic and tired and have been sleeping a lot. And not exercising beyond cycling to work and trying to keep to my daily pull-ups.
It’s annoying because I want to be doing my training, but don’t have the energy. And I feel like if I push myself to do it (the next workout being Aphrodite again btw), I’d be using up vital energy that I need to get back on form.
So for now, it’s laying low for me. Hoping it’ll be gone by the weekend…
My first week setting Coach at five workouts ground to a halt on Day 2.
I’ve come down with a stinking cold and have been in bed for the last 24 hours. Lots of fluids, sleep and warm blankets and I think I’m on the mend, but I am not exercising.
There are plenty of websites that recommend working out even when you’ve got a cold (here’s one), but I just can’t see it as being sensible. I really believe in cancelling everything and laying as low as possible in order to shift it in as short a time as possible.
The good news though is that the muscle pain I was feeling after correct form pull-ups didn’t appear after doing Artemis the other day. Must be building strength 🙂
