So, I woke up this morning feeling stuffy. My face hurt a little and my sinuses felt dry. All day my body has felt strange, not bad or sore, just strange. Of course, I went to the gym anyway…because I love it.
A few people have told me you should not workout when you are sick. Have any of you heard this? Also do you have any kind of explanation or grasp on just how “sick” you have to be to skip the gym? I was not running a fever or throwing up, so I thought going to the gym was no big deal. However, after trying to lift what I would normally, I felt it in my muscles (weakness). I ended up reducing the weights and my reps in order to get my whole circuit in. I still did fine on the elliptical, though, and it did not bother me even slightly.
Also I am not with the whole medication thing, so does anyone have any knowledge of natural “helpers” to kick a head cold?
Here’s to hoping I am feeling better tomorrow because I meet with my trainer at 6:30 PM.
How is your week going? Are you still on the right track?
