Hi everyone... I mainly need a little support to keep myself from doing something stupid.
I have an upper respiratory infection, have been sick since Monday, finally went to the doctor today. I exercised Monday before I started showing symptoms, Tuesday even though I was a little congested (and actually felt a lot better for a few hours), didn't do anything yesterday. I felt horrible and could barely walk downstairs to drive to work, much less work out. Today I went to the doctor and got a steroid shot, feel kind of out of it but wanted to exercise. So, did a 35 minute cardio yoga video. I know it is plenty for today, but I feel myself wanting to go back in and do more to make up for yesterday. I tend to be very goal oriented and am pretty hard on myself if I feel I'm not staying on track. I also tend to overdo and find myself regretting it later. Trying hard not to do that today.
What do you guys do when you are sick? Am I better off to rest the rest of today and try some light cardio in the morning?
