Some People Think...

... that unless you have a fever, you're ok to work out. I tend to buy into whatever theory directly suits what I want to do.

So yesterday I decided that I wasn't going to be sick anymore... that I was going to go about my day just like I would normally... you know... honeydo things, play with the kids, wash the dog, maybe rake up some leaves and remove the doggy droppings from the grass. I also thought, "HEY! I KNOW... I'll bundle myself up and hop on the trainer and SWEAT this crud out!" Great idea right? So I put on a whole bunch of layers... including two hats, gloves, and a down jacket and hopped on the trainer. I got to watch both IM Wisconsin AND St. Croix... had them taped but hadn't watched them yet. Actually felt really good to sweat a bit. I got off the trainer, drenched, after over an hour of spinning at a steady cadence of 95 with my HR never getting over 145 BPM. I felt SO good that I grabbed my oldest son and we took Aggie to the dog wash... we love a clean baby puppy. After we got home and I sat down and stopped moving around... it hit me like a ton of bricks! I could physically feel my sinuses filling with guke and my head trying to compensate for the building pressure in my ears... ouch!

So guess what I did today? I stayed in bed. Yup. Good times. Luckily for me Kathryn went to the store, bought all the fixins, came home and made some chicken n ginger soup. She's a saint. I'm feeling quite a bit better as I sit here writing this... I'm hoping for the best. All I know is that this has got to pass and its got to pass fast.

Breathe...

p.s. Coach Matt... I'm still not scared of you... even if I am sick!

Sorry you feel yucky. Glad your wife is taking good care of you, even if you aren't taking good care of you.

Feel better, that's an order.

Oh, you are such a sniveling baby! I'd come over there and kick your ass myself if I wasn't wary of catching that crud you got. Aren't you supposed to be some kind of hot shot Special Forces dude? You've got exactly ONE day from the reality of ME kicking YOUR ass on a daily basis. Rest up. Your gonna need it.

I'd like to apologize for Matt's use of excessive expletives... even though this is a family friendly blog... he has a very limited vocabulary.

Sometimes a week off is good, although that doesn't sound like a fun way to spend it.

And btw keep that crud away from me!

They say "ass" on TV, don't they?

Some good snooze action will help you out, too.

Get better, homey.
