Exercising When You’re Sick

14 Mar

As you may recall from an earlier post, I knew it was time for me to shape up and get on an exercise schedule.  I have been doing really great on Weight Watchers – but I know it’s about more than just eating healthy.  Sporadic work outs just weren’t going to cut it.

So this week I committed myself to working out at least 3 times per week.  This will likely increase as I build up my strength and endurance.

Monday went great – no problems.

Yesterday?  Not quite so easy.

I’ve been battling a terrible cold and it has progressively gotten worse over the week.  Although I was too tired to work out yesterday, I still did it.  I got myself on the bike and pedaled my little heart out.  I still did my full work out, but I was much more winded and exhausted than I had been two days prior.  My miles-per-hour were slightly lower and I didn’t go as far a distance as I had on Monday.

But the good thing is I did it!  I struggled through every minute of it – but I got it done.

Do you exercise when you’re under the weather?  Do you change up your routine at all – trying something a bit more slower paced?

  1. Please get better soon. You’re so disciplined that it should be easy for you to get back into the routine again. (If not write me for a nudge.)
