I didn’t realize I was ill….

    • 30 seconds rest every other trip

I had started to feel sick the evening prior, but I didn’t think it was anything serious to worry about. Just a cough, right?

How wrong I was.

I got to the gym and was able to do my work squats just fine. Heck, the 3rd rep @ 260 was tough, but I pushed out 2 more because damnit I wasn’t going to let myself get crushed at 3×260.

But after that, I just wasn’t feeling it. Seriously not feeling it. Despite the below-freezing temperature and whipping arctic wind, I went outside to pull the sled. That didn’t last long…. the cold was too much.

I went home, and promptly passed out, and stayed in bed the rest of the day. I don’t know what I caught, but it was apparently FAR worse than I fathomed.

The worst part? Because of all the glute and ham work and that I didn’t cool down (no foam rolling, no stretching), I was in achy pain from the back of my knees up to my middle back all day while lying in bed. :-)

I’m feeling better now and planning on going back to the gym tomorrow for bench press day, but I will take it as it comes and see how I feel.
