Last Thursday I was sitting at my desk when it happened. I started to feel cold, achy, and worst of all, sneezing. When I sneeze in the winter time, multiple times, it means I’m coming down with a cold or I just ran around a dusty room in circles. Since I don’t do the latter very often, I knew I was coming down with a cold. As the day progressed, I just felt worse. When I finally got to my moms to have dinner, all I could think about was sleep.

I woke up friday with a pounding headache, a dry fire roasted throat and homicidal thoughts. Okay, a little dramatic. I worked from home and tried to rest as much as possible. I took Nyquil and slept for almost 14 hours into Saturday. My guy was working over time and I had to dog site (My brother bought a Great Dane puppy!!). After that, I hung out with my guy before he went out with his friends, and again, slept another 11-12 hours. It felt amazing. I did feel somewhat better Sunday. I still had a runny nose and somewhat of a sore throat, but my energy was coming back. We decided to push the Obstacle Training back until 12:30 to give me time to relax and make sure I was up to it. I did pretty good, although hacking up mucus and throwing up after sprints might attribute to clearing out my lungs. šŸ˜‰

We only did 2 sets & about 2.5 miles of running. Regardless, it was good to start the obstacle training again after having 3 weeks off. But I feel much better today! I’m still tired and a little achy, but I kicked ass at the gym this morning.
