Enforced Rest

part of the programI have had a cough, one of those horrible, non stop, lung regurgitating type of coughs that stop you doing anything and make breathing hurt. I also came with a bonus free gift of a cold.

Consequently I have had to rest O_O

I have now been a whole week without setting foot in a gym. I have only been for a lunchtime walk once and that was a bit of an amble.

I danced at the weekend but it nearly killed me. I only went because we were short on dancers and I was the dragon in the story (I was so not with it I forgot to get any dragon-y pictures for you all 😦 )

I danced on Wednesday evening because I thought I was getting better, I was getting better, but not as much better as I thought so Thursday was another day resting.

Now it is Friday and this is the longest rest period I have had (enforced or otherwise) since I started this blog!

I have to say, I have hated it, but I really really needed it! If there is one thing I have learned this past .5 years, it is that sometimes you just need to rest. And a really good example of those time is when you can’t get through a whole sentence without coughing!

The good news is…I am almost better now and normal service will be resumed!

    Oh my. I’m so glad you’re feeling better. It’s so annoying when the recovery process takes such a long time!
