Starting to re-surface

sick_in_bedBronchitis.  It is not pretty and has knocked me for six!

I’m officially taking this week off exercise.  I just can’t imagine doing much of anything useful, my body aches, my bones and joints ache, my head aches, my lungs ache.  And that is now that I am starting to feel a bit more human!

I have a doctor’s appointment on Friday (was meant to be a pap smear and general check-up) which will let me know if I am clear to start back with my exercise in time to do a fitness test.

I am really disappointed.  The second fitness test is usually a time for celebrating the successes of these first four weeks.  Instead I will only be celebrating the fact that I can manage to get out of bed and maybe even make it to the gym for a workout!

I hope this doesn’t set me back too far from my goals.  I will be going through my pre-season tasks again quickly and re-evaluating what I will be able to achieve knowing that this virus might affect my lungs for a while yet.

For now, I need to give my body the best chance of a full and quick recovery with lots of rest, and good healthy clean eating!


  1. Nah that sucks, hope you feel better soon!

  2. Hi Jen,
    I hope you feel better soon. Sometimes rest is more important than exercise and nutrition has more effect than exercise, so perhaps keep focused on that :)
