It’s been awhile since I have been sick. It was the end of 2013. IT was a doozey of a cold that followed me into the new year, but I haven’t been sick with a proper cold since….just fighting baby germs that showed them selves as day or two long sore throats.
I firmly believe that I avoided being sick because of my running. I know that, when my dad was running, he NEVER got sick…and it seemed to be working for me, too.
But now…it’s that horrible cold n flu season and I’m not really running (thanks hip flexor) and now it appears that my body is slowly but surely caving to those horrible germs. DAMN!
Side note– I’m not giving up without a fight–I have green tea, chicken noodle soup and Cold FX in my lunch bag today.
And even though I know there is never a good time to get sick, the timing of these germs is not so great. I have swim club tonight, curling tomorrow, a six hour baking seminar on Saturday and then I’m gone to a resort a few hours away for some training for most of the week.
On the plus side, it is highly likely that, if I do end up sick now, it means that I should be relatively germ free for at least a year…which should mean I won’t be sick for my trip to Australia in March or for Wine n Dine next year (yes, I’m already planning for it).
Maybe this cold is a blessing in disguise. It will force me to slow down and rest a bit this weekend after several extremely busy weekends. Maybe I can find some good tv to binge watch.
Anyway, must get back to trying to work despite feeling like sh!t (and very likely looking like sh!t, too).
Happy Small Friday!
