Then, I remembered...the push ups, sit ups challenege that I finished on Thursday. I had been planning to re-do Week 3 this week, starting on Monday, but I could barely move between my back, my left calf and my right knee. So I took yesterday off...I went shopping last night and did a fair amount of walking.
This morning rolls around and I get up at 6am and head out to the gym...walking to the gym I notice I'm in pain but I keep thinking that it will just wear off once I get warmed up. I stretch and get on the treadmill, walking hurts but I am trying to push through, so I go into a jog and it felt as if I had knives repeatedly stabbing me in the back, calf and knee. I had to stop. I came home and tried to do a "Zen Sculpt" pilates/cardio type deal and could only make it 1/2 way through.
It's about this time I realize I've been coughing all morning and my nose is running like crazy. I also feel a little feverish. I think I'm getting a cold too! What in the world!
I think this might be my bodies way of telling me to take it easy for awhile? Even sitting at work is causing me some pain. I'm only 29, I'm not supposed to be falling apart!
Even though it's not my fault I can't work out, I feel guilty about it. Is it because I made so many bad food choices over the weekend thinking I would work a lot of it off this week? Maybe.
Happy 1st day of Fall! (The best season)
