Oh, friends. I have been majorly slumping.
For a little over a month now, I’ve had a nasty cough I just can’t shake. This is coming from the girl that is never illin’. I used to brag about it constantly! The worst part is that it’s not a achey muscles/feverish kind of sick, it’s just an sporadically annoying fit of coughs/fever.
Some people think it might be tied to my cat allergies…I might have to cave soon and agree. It started a couple weeks after I rescued Rory, so who knows. Or maybe my body is telling me it is time to slow down a bit and take a breather.
All I know is, I had not exercised [no derby, no Crossfit] in about a month, and it was making me crazy. We are currently in the “off season” of rollerderby so, I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been avoiding those 2-3x/week 80 mile drives. [My gas tank/tires/wallet are very appreciative.] However, I decided to start back at Crossfit this week…and ouch! Good luck to me in my “weakened” state. It’s like my muscles are waking up from hibernation. haha Big stretch guys, we can do this!
Speaking of a weakened state: While I was feeling all wonderful and healthy [see: about a month ago], my sister and I signed up for a 10K Turkey Trot. TEN KAY. I’ve only ever in my life fun 5Ks. I guess I’ve got to suck it up and train no matter what! And I’ve only got a few days until go-time. YIKES.
p.s. check out my guest post on Cykochik and see what’s in my bag. 🙂
