Oh man, it might be bad enough to be called a "man cold".....

OK, let's not get carried away, but I haven't left the house since Sunday, when I didn't get my hot tub after the track workout b/c I forgot my bathing suit.

Some observations:
  • 3 days without work isn't too stressful, but having to get up to call in sick disturbs my rest and recovery.
  • The weather hasn't enticed me to go out, so it's been a "drug free" cold. Maybe that's the issue. I'm definitely a druggie when it comes to the sniffles. The more the better and in combination. (hmmm, should I be admitting to that and putting it in writing - obviously I'm delusional b/c I've had no drugs!)
  • Amazing how often the phone rings with stupid telemarketers when you're home during the day.
  • You can never underestimate the power of a nap or even 2!
  • Being home to allow the guy in to fix my lack of heat wasn't part of the plan, but having heat when it's been -30'C many days in a row has been helpful.
May have to leave the house tomorrow as I'm almost out of kleenex.
Needless to say, no gym workouts this week. Hope to get back at it on Sat. Not doing a time trial though, I'll still be recovering.... (glad I have good numbers from Dec.)

Happy training,
Ciao, Cindy
