I’ve struggled with allergen-induced Asthma for some time now and know that this time of year it gets a little hairy – but you mix in being on a plane a couple of times in the month and that’ll do it too!

 

SHOULD WE EXERCISE WHILE WE’RE SICK

 

I’m not saying Yes or No.

 

I am saying that SUPER tough workouts aren’t smart to do while working out and that my body tends to do well with a couple of days of rest. After that, I like to try to get moving with a short cardio workout which can sometimes boost my immunity and get me moving – especially if I’m trying to gauge how I’ll be when I need to go teach in the week.I do feel that for super tough strength or endurance workouts, being sick may not be the best time to do that.

 

I had a good run, but the cooties caught up with me. I will continue to work on boosting my immunity back up since it’d been so long, but to be ‘laid up’ 3 days wasn’t terribly bad. I was able to rest through the Memorial Day weekend and be back and ready to teach on my Wednesday and Thursday schedule YAY!
