The picture below pretty much sums up my week of training in a nutshell.
I went to bed Sunday night with a horrible muscle ache all over my body. I figured I would take Monday and possibly Tuesday off and I would be ready to work out hard the rest of the week. On Wednesday, while I still felt a little ill my wife and daughter came down with a flu bug. We were lucky that their sickness was short lived. After staying home on on Thursday morning to help out, I finally felt ready to go back to the gym on Friday. I ran 6.25 good miles and lifted my legs and felt good during the work out. However, almost directly after the work out I felt awful. I figured I just needed some food but the sick feeling progressed after I ate. I limped through work until about 1pm until I could not sit up straight anymore. I’ve been at home nursing myself back to health ever since.
