Nothing like a cold...

....to knock you off track.

Actually, I can't completely blame the virus for my slow down last week. It was a combination of TOO BUSY with family and work and feeling BLAH with a cold.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday were spent with a stuffed up head and feeling blah. Had lots of busy family things to do and the last thing I wanted to do was workout.
Monday morning I slept in, hoping to knock down the virus even further, having started to feel better by Sunday evening.

But Monday evening I decided that, even though I wasn't feeling 100%, I was going to get back in the swing. I ROCKED out the Chest and Back workout, getting personal bests on nearly all push ups and pull ups.
And this morning I was back in the swing, getting up early enough to get my PlyoX workout in, which I relished with extra strength and vigor.

The jury is out about working out when sick. Some like to "push through". Others like to nurse the cold a bit and then get back into the swing of things. You know best what is best. A common cold is one thing, but something worse like Flu or Strep would call for more rest than activity.

So anyway, pushing through and feeling good (albeit a bit sore). Now if can get my nose to stop running......
