So i was feeling like i was getting a cold last night..and woke up early today feeling sick as well. I had planned on meeting my friend at the gym to run, but was thinking about resting it up.
Well I am very glad that i went to meet her! Not only did i run 6.2 miles, but I felt great while doing it….It took me about 59 minutes (6.0-6.5mph pace) and I really was feeling good, even though i was sick. I then did a leg workout: squats, reverse lunges, prone(lying) ham curls and the squat press machine…16 sets total. I am feeling so much better both physically and sick-wise. I’ve always said…working out makes me feel better when im sick and people think im crazy but im telling you it works!! I don’t necessarily recomend this and it may not work for everyone, but weight training especially..even if you go light…i feel makes you just feel a little bit better..rest however is extremely important as welll though and you need much more rest and WATER when you are sick.
I had a protein shake and some blueberries post-workout. If anyone is looking for a GOOD TASTING PROTEIN POWDER….i was referred to one and it really does taste great. It is the Isopure low carb or no carb (depending on the flavor)powder…i bought the cookies and cream flavor, but you can also get it in dutch chocolate which is supposed to be really tasty as well. I haven’t tried the other flavors, but i would guess they are probably pretty good as well!
That’s all for now…getting ready for work, then going to eat some chicken, brown rice and veggies!
