Under the weather

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…

Exercising with a cold…


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 🙂
