Monday night, Brian and I came down with severe flu symptoms. I wont give too many details but lets just say it was bad and I haven't been that sick in a long time.
Seems like I have the stronger immune system in this family. But it still stinks to be sick. We are both very dehydrated but thankfully we are both able to keep fluids and some solid food down now.
So what happens to running when your sick. Well yesterday it didn't happen and I have to say that bothered me. While I was in the ER, I was tired and uncomfortable but I was also angry that I was sick. All I could think about was how I was going to miss my workout. And along with all these crazy thoughts, there were times I wanted to throw the whole training schedule out the window.
Dramatic, I know.
Its just when you are sick and feeling your worst, I think your brain plays tricks on you. You start to feel like you will never get better (Similarly to when you are injured) and that nothing will ever be the same.
This morning things are better, but not 100%. Seems like this flu/intestinal virus thing has been going around. Hopefully this is the last we see of it because it really is not fun.
And hopefully I will be back to running soon.
