Today, after taking 11 days off from the gym, I finally returned.
I had to listen to my body, as well as Jason telling me to take care of myself after I came down with a wicked cold and cough. My first sickness of the winter season and boy it was no fun. Well, it still is no fun as I try to get rid of the last of this horrible cough and runny nose.
So today after giving myself some time to recover, I laced up my running shoes and hit the gym. Yes, something I have been wanting to do for quite some time now. But, sometimes the best thing you can do is listen to your body tell you it’s just not time yet.
I felt like I was home again when my key gave me the green light to enter the gym this afternoon. I instantly got on the treadmill and ran a mile and a half, which actually wasn’t all that rough considering. It felt good to sweat off some of this sickness that uninvitingly took a hold of my body. After doing a little bit of weights, careful not to overdo it, I then did a little over six miles on the bike.
Overall I was pretty happy with what I achieved with not feeling 100% yet.
Yep, I will be returning again tomorrow and hopefully get back on schedule. I have to take baby steps first . . . I don’t want this sickness to come back before it fully goes away.
I feel refreshed and the best part is I am feeling a little better.
