So I was AWOL most of last week. Monday I came down with that cold-like bug that’s going around and spent the rest of the week a snotty-nosed mess hackin’ up my lungs like a 3-pack a day smoker.
If you find yourself getting that little tickle? This virus seems short-lived – most of us were feeling better in three days- except that every 3 hours or so the sinuses open wide and the coughing becomes uncontrollable. It lasts about 15 minutes, then goes away until the next bout.
Charming, I’m sure. Bet you’re glad I shared that.
Anyway, this virus left me foggy-brained and unable to form a clear thought. So quiet I was. And while I was unable to concentrate enough to write, I also wasn’t in any shape to work out hard. Walking, some simply body weight work, some light weights here at home were about the extent of it.
By Sunday, I was plain itching to get into the gym again. My plans for today:
30 minutes of cardio – the dogs still need walking afterall.
- Bench Press
- Leg Press
- Lat Pulls
A good full body hit that’s not too, too demanding on my “getting over the plague” body.
