To REST or Not to REST?!

14 Mar

I have been a little under the weather the past couple of days! 🙂 The worst of it was Tuesday afternoon through yesterday early evening. I had planned to do my bike test last night but decided to go over to PS’ house so he could take care of me cook me dinner instead. I felt like putting off the bike test would be good because 1) I was feeling not 100% and 2) I just wanted to relax!

It is always tough for me to miss a work out. Even if I am not feeling so hot, I typically feel better after a work out so I usually just suck it up and go! This time around I have had this cough that just will not go away! I guess that is what is going around right now! If I am on the back-end of it I will be happy and my poor patients will be happy too!

I made another executive decision and skipped swim practice this morning. I decided it would be best if I slept in and swam later in the day. I also had a massage scheduled at 9:45. That would have normally been fine because my work out would have been done by that time but I went to the massage first and then hit the pool.

I have not swam in a yard pool in I do not even know how long. FOREVER! I decided to hit up the Hollywood 24hr fitness. I have never swam there before but heard good things. It has 6 lanes and it is a saline pool. I got there and there was NO ONE in the pool I could not believe it. It was lunch time too! I got in and it felt great. I am not sure if it was just the change of scenery. OR if it was because it was shorter than I am used to. OR if I was loose from the massage. OR if I had taken an extra rest day. WHO KNOWS! All I know is I had a great swim!

After the swim I went home to make these tacos:

Another good thing reason why I like having Greg as a roommate is: He subscribes to a ton of magazines. Outside is one of them. I do not think they usually have recipes but this edition did. I ended up making more of a taco salad then tacos.

They were good. A little blah so I added some salsa and that helped. I love salsa and I add it to just about anything I can!

The most exciting news of the day is I am going to a local chocolate company workshop tonight. Should be fun. More details tomorrow!!!

Do you work out when you are sick? Does it make you feel better? What is your favorite chocolate?

    I heard you are not suppose to work out when you don’t feel good – and if you have a fever or cold – you should NOT get a massage. But, like you, I would skip the work out and get the massage. Daughter like Mother – you don’t fall far from the tree 🙂
