Bugged

Well, it finally hit. B-Boy was sick a while back, and he still sounds like he's coughing up a lung, sometimes. Monster Girl succumbed fairly quickly and has been the worse for it for about a week and a half, now. She bears the brunt because she can't blow her nose. That means she faces the suction bulb. I know a lady who used one on herself just to see what the kids experience. She said it sucked, literally and figuratively.

I resisted the bug for quite some time, getting my training sessions in and doing well. This morning, before the alarm ever went off, I knew an hour run was unlikely. So, I opted to get a bit more sleep and see if I can get the run (or at least an hour on the bike trainer) completed, tonight.

The worst part is that events at work make a sick day out of the question. I believe that if I'm sick enough to miss a training session I'm sick enough to miss work. Since I'm at work, I have to get the training in, somehow.

And once I'm all better and reenergized, I'll post something more interesting. Until then, it's the sick baby blues.

Hope you get better soon! We have the flu floating around here-half of HG class is out with it. My metabolic test was $85 at the Y but I get an employee discount. There is a guy at St. Thomas who does them in combo with a pool body fat assessment for $65.00-he uses the data as part of his research. The data was invaluable for me-cleared up a lot of questions.

Oh, I like that rule of thumb...sick enough to miss training = sick enough to miss work. Makes a lot of sense. I'm a big fan of the neck rule, too, but it sounds like your current bug went south of the border into the lungs. Ugh. Feel better...
