Without being able to complete last Thursday's workout, and then skipping Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday's workouts... I have had quite the exercise vacation! I am so glad that I am finally feeling better!
I am on day 3 of my Z-pack, and although I am much improved, I have been warned that I will need time to get back to where I was physically. My cold did move into my chest, so with my asthma, I will need to take it easy on myself, and definitely use my albuterol.
I did a 30 minute ride on the trainer this evening and premedicated with albuterol, which was really helpful. I took it easy and didn't seem to have any trouble. My workout called for a run to follow the ride, but I decided to leave it out. Why overdo it and set myself back? Tomorrow morning I plan to go to the pool for a nice swim. I am thinking I should cut my workout in half and just do that... I think I have a bike ride also tomorrow, but since I did a ride tonight and I skipped the run, maybe I will do the run tomorrow, but cut the time in half also. Or I could do the full time, but run/walk it. I think I might just see how I feel when I get there. :)
I have to admit that I am feeling nervous about my break in routine. I am a routine girl. I live and breathe by it. Without a routine... I flounder. Sometimes I can lose my motivation, and sometimes it is hard to get it back. I need to promise myself that this won't happen while I am getting back into my grove... I need to keep my eye on the prize.
