Yea!!!! I'm sick



I don't know who this kid is, but I sure can relate. I OFFICIALLY FEEL LIKE CRAP. Started feeling something on Monday. After my 1.5 hour brick workout on Tuesday I felt horrible. Sure enough, by Wednesday it was comin on. Thats the thing about working as paint contractor, and being one of the essential 'crew' members. I need to be on site all the time and could not just take a day off. So the workouts stopped and I worked half days the latter part of the week. Ugh. I do think the break in training is good for my body, since I've been hard at it for about 5-6 weeks now.

Trimama had an estrogen party here last night. So poor old me and my sick body had to take the three younger kids out to grandma's so she could have her 'girl' time. When asked what they were doing by my parents, I of course responded that I have know idea, in fact I don't even know why I had to leave. This ambivalent answer thereby preserves my man card points.

I know alot of people who are sick right now. This cold thing is really going around. Bolder was mentioning that he was really sick lately and that his coach encourages a 3 days feeling 100% rule. I don't know. That means that I probably would not work out again until next Wednesday??? Seems a bit long to me. What do you in blog land think?

I had bronchitis a couple weeks ago and couldn't shake it, so I took 2 days completely off while taking an antibiotic and felt much better by that 3rd day. I started working out again, and I felt fine.

Get well soon!

Feel better fast Tac Boy!

bubbly boogers, while disgusting and nasty in their own right, are far less odious than the thick green plug type boogers.

hope you feel better soon!

Tac-inator...
When I feel the bug uh-comin, I try "Emergen-C."

What's that, you ask? Well, its a super energy booster of 1,000 mg of vitamin C and other immune boosters all packed in a fizzy drink packet.

Just add it to a small glass of water and juice and slurp it down.

One a day will have that cold of yours licked in no time.

EMERGEN-C...you can get it at Wal-Mart.

Man, that's one gnarly snot bubble on that kid!

Sorry to have missed you last night at the GW sale, but I hope you're feeling better!

We'll talk about IMWI soon. :)

I agree with txskatemom, plug type boogers are the worst.

Three days at 100%? With two kids in daycare and all the great germs they pick-up there, I think my rule for IM Florida was 1/2 day at 75%!

I use the head/chest thing, and go from there. When it's just a head cold, I train as I feel able. If it's a chest issue, I stop the training (and probably check in with my pulmonary doc).

I had some of the same type crud, and wound up taking two days completely off, plus two days at greatly reduced load. Feel better now.

TaconiteBoy,

I finally check the infamous video that the tribloggers are rumouring around.

Amazing...bring tears to my eyes. I am training for my first IM this year (IMLP). Keep up the good work.
