This update will cover all days, instead of the daily updates which usually happen in the compilations. As we may already know, Monday (the 25th) the afternoon hit and I started to feel a pretty bad sore throat coming on. And while I ended up still working out on Tuesday (the 26th), and it felt fine, the rest of the week was not so blessed when it came to how I was feeling. My head consistently hurt and the swallowing hurt pretty bad as well. After talking it out with Mary, rest seemed to be exactly what I needed. And we couldn't have been more right. While mentally I wanted to be in the gym, my physical body kept telling me I needed the rest. As Regionals went on, I started to feel better and excited to get myself in the gym the following Monday.
My sleep was the best it had been in so long; helps not waking up to WOD around 4:45am. Everything happens for a reason in my eyes, and getting sick was a sign I needed to rest and slow down and honor my body the rest it was craving underneath that cold.
