Road to Recovery

Yesterday and the day before had me feeling like absolute crap and today the crap-storm broke and I attempted to return to the health habits that were largely un-interrupted otherwise.  I changed and hopped on the the treadmill to see what I could manage starting on 2.5 MPH at a 10 degree incline.  I began sweating heavily and had trouble keeping this pace and just kept reducing the machine settings until I felt I could move comfortably.  My speed stabilized at 1.6 MPH and a 5 degree incline, less than half of what I normally set these to and I’m pretty sure slower than what I had managed in work that day.

I moved on to try weight lifting and in almost no case could I manage a set of more than three reps compared to the 10-15 I normally use.

Maybe I’m not better yet.
