This was the weekend of lying on the couch under multiple blankets. For the last few days I’ve been fighting a fever, cough, nasal congestion and headache (I am regretting my decision not to get a flu shot…), and my Fitbit stats tell the story:
The steps were acquired walking from the bed to the bathroom, to the bed, to the kitchen, to the bed., etc., and the calories were burned just by being alive. What a sad little day! What’s funny though, is what my sleep looks like after taking some Nyquil:
Up once to use the bathroom, and hard asleep the rest of the night. Hah! Nyquil, for the win.
Saturday morning Andrew brought me some goodies:
Tissues (with lotion), Traditional Medicinals tea, and the current Runner’s World magazine to keep me occupied during my bed/couch-rest. Plus more drugs.
I don’t know if it’s actually the flu or just a really bad cold, but I’ve felt pretty awful. I am starting to feel slightly more functional today but am still going to take it easy. I’m a big believer in resting when sick to give your body its best chance to heal!
Have a great, healthy Monday!
Have you been hit with the flu this year?
Do you exercise when you’re sick?
