Sick, Cold

2008-07-01 – 2008-07-03

Grade: 1

I have picked up a minor cold, probably due to the exposure to very cold air whilst pushing so hard on the weekend. I have a cough and sniffle and my resting heart rate is up to 65 from 52. I am resting and treating to recover as I cannot afford to get the flu at WOC or for the next 5 weeks leading up to and including the BULL.

Handled very nicely, I increased my Vit C intake through oranges, tried for more sleep and rest and dealt with it in about 2 days. I don't think I lost any fitness and in fact the rest was probably very neccessary!
