I am now ill fan-feckin-tastic. Sore throat mostly…my wife has the theory that my immune system and my body’s other defences are going into over drive repairing and rebuilding my muscles and fixing my lungs and heart from the years of unhealthy living…so they’re too busy to do their usual job and fend off colds and sore throats…I don’t know how accurate this assessment is but it’s as good as any. Though no matter how shoddy I felt I still powered through my workouts, collapsing in a heap at the end…my Grandmother came by and saw me on the floor…she seemed to think that I had had another seizure – thankfully she checked before calling an ambulance.

Through swimming, I did a grand total of 4 lengths, my breathing was messed up because of the sore throat and I just couldn’t do anymore…so I lounged in the Jacuzzi instead. I did manage a 0.7 job/ speed walk to make up for my missed Cardio, not much I know but it’s better than nothing, I’ll just try a little harder at the gym tomorrow.

I also cheated my diet…yup, it’s been a really bad day for me and I was doing so well. Ended up getting take away because I just couldn’t be arsed to cook…a spam fritter burger with extra cheese and mayo with a side of a jumbo sausage in batter and I’m beating myself up. Guess it’ll just have to be my cheat meal this week and I’ll have to keep to salad for tomorrows date night with the Mrs.

So yeah all in all a crappy day on my part I hope it’s just the fact I feel ill that’s making me start rethinking this whole thing and I’ll wake up either tomorrow or Saturday with a renewed perspective and be able to power through the workouts with the mantra “Thank god it’s the weekend.

Until next time.
