You can run, you can hide, but there's no escaping...the flu!

Well, I was starting to feel all high and mighty. I'd survived several rounds of the flu at work, 2 rounds at home, and the illness of most of my teammates. I thought it was due to my superior nutrition, fitness and sleep. I was a pillar of productivity at work.

And then....

Yesterday, after doing my roller workout and having my 2nd breakfast, I was sitting at work, and my throat started to itch way, way down. All I could think about was grabbing a back scratcher and sticking it down my throat. I was hoping it was allergies. But, alas, today I am achy and run-over feeling and the throat is now tender rather than itchy. I'm doubling up on my naps in the hope that I will be well for Snelling next weekend.

Sigh.

Poor sweet thing. Just relax, take it easy, work on getting better. I will take care of everything else for now. And it is looking like you may be going for the triple nap day.

hey all,
Thanks! I'm feeling a bit better tonight than last night. Knocking on wood that the chilaxing is leading to quick recovering. Oh, and for the record, I only had 2 naps yesterday!

chatterbox,
if you get off with just a few days of flu, you are lucky! That thing took me out for almost a week, and I *never* get sick (literally, i hadn't had a cold or flu for like 3 years...and this one took me down hard)! Anyway, i sure wasn't what I hoped to be for the AZ stage race...but I finished! :-)
Chicken soup, naps, no stress...you'll be back at it in no time!

Chatterbox - yes, you took only two naps on Saturday. But you were heading to #3 when I posted the comment, just never arrived.

Doc Kim - only one week? You got off easy! I, too, never get sick. But I got whacked in early January, thought I had it licked in less than a week, but it took me back down for almost two more. Blech!
