Last week i was sick with some super sonic wicked awful flu. With the three kids also being sick I was wiped. The majority of the week I had a fever of 103. It was awful.
I know you are not supposed to workout with a fever or when you are sick so I knew i needed to take it easy. i also didnt want to take a week off from exercising. It’s my time and my body craves it. I didnt want to make myself more sick or prolong the flu either.
My compromise. Take it easy. I still went out 5 days out of the week but walked for the majority of it while I had the fever. It is better then nothing and really all my body could handle.
By Sunday I was feeling a lot better. I was able to run the full mile and walk a second. My brother and I were talking about our goals and we decided also to add in an additional workout after our run. We tried out an Abdominal video – 15 minutes of just ab work. Our goal is to do that as well after our runs. Not sure how well that will go though – it was tough
5 x / week
Ran: 2 miles (3.2km)
Walked: 4.5 miles (7km)
Ab workout: 20 minutes
