And here I thought the cold I had a week and a half ago was all I got, how wrong was I.
It has been so cold last week, normally I can handle it fine but last week I’ve been cold the entire day. Now I know that was because I wasn’t fit. Friday morning I did some cleaning, got my run in, did grocery shopping, took Bella for a walk but when I got home after that I completely collapsed and felt very sick, think I had a fever but since we don’t have a temperature I’m not sure. My head was exploding, my body was tired and all I could do was sit on the couch and do nothing.
I went to bed early and had 10 hours of sleep. When I woke up Saturday morning my throat was still hurting, my nose still running but the headache was gone and I felt better.
By now (Sunday evening) I’m not a 100% fit but it’s getting better every day. I took Saturday and Sunday off from working out. I’m picking up my workouts tomorrow and go to work and we’ll see how it goes. Because I was sick I’m behind on reading blogs but I’ll catch up with you next week.
We had snow last Tuesday and because it’s so cold it doesn’t melt. Today we had some more snow and more expected tonight. It’s cold and it looks like it’s going to stay cold the next week.
Wednesday morning I was glad that I didn’t have a run planned because it was so cold and the roads weren’t clean yet with all the snow. Instead I did a Chalean Extreme workout but I wasn’t really in the mood and I skipped two exercises. Excercises were all for legs and shoulders.
Total time: 29 minutes.
Friday I did training 2 of week of the 5K program. I had to do 2-6-2-6-2-6 and it went fine till the last 6 minutes where I had to take an extra walk break. My physical condition considered it was an okay run.
Run-walk ratio: 2-6-2-6-2-6 minutes, 1 minute walking inbetween (24 minutes running, 6 minutes walking)
Weather: dry, windy, 0C (33 degrees)
Distance: 4.4 K / 2.7 miles
Last song on Ipod before finish: Bruce Springsteen – Cadillac Ranch
Weekly workout review:
My workout week was fine till Friday, then I got sick on Friday and took extra rest days on Saturday and Sunday.
Breakfast (4 points): Oatmeal with a half banana, 1 tablespoon brown sugar and 1 tablespoon peanut butter. Never had this combination before and it tasted very good.
Lunch (13 points) Couscous salad, it was delicious, an orange, milk and a bowl of tomato soup because I wanted something warm. Turned out to be way too much for lunch and I wasn’t hungry the rest of the afternoon and didn’t eat my fruits.
Dinner (10 points): Spaghetti with meatballs and tomato sauce.
Snacks: Zoen (during a meeting) (2 Points).
Thursday and Friday and Saturday
Thursday was a complete off day and I didn’t count points. I had a meeting all day, including lunch and I had too much too eat. Still need to work on that. Friday was okay but I ate not enough during the day because I was sick. Saturday was a good day but I forgot to take pictures.
Breakfast (7 Points): Vanilla yogurt with blueberries and granola.
Lunch (7 Points): 2 Slices of whole wheat bread with salad, brie cheese, honey and walnuts.
Dinner (12 Points): Pasta with Bolognese sauce.
