Being sick sucks

So last week was supposed to be a deload week from training. Started off like that but it turned out a whole lot worse.

Woke up on Tuesday morning feeling a bit rough, had a tickly throat and a bit of a cough. Then on Wednesday after not much sleep, I went to work with no voice, earache and feeling like shit. I was told to go home at lunch time and managed to get an appointment to see the doctor. A quick look down my eartubes and then a look down my throat and i was prescribed some penicillin and told to go home and rest.

Thursday was by far the worst day I have had in a long time. After no sleep at all, I spent the rest of the day moaning, puking, coughing, grumping and then puking some more.

The drugs seemed to kick in really quickly as by Friday night I was able to get a few hours sleep ready for Santa.

Christmas day was great with the family. Kids were fantastic, getting Santa presents, then a visit from my folks and sister and brother in law, then Jackies mum and dad and sister came for Christmas dinner. Jackie made a fabulous dinner, which I was only able to eat a little bit of.

Over the last week I have lost about 9 or 10 pounds in weight due to lack of appetite, puking and having little or no food. First time in history I have LOST weight over Christmas

The plan for training is too take the rest of this week off and start back slowly next monday.

Hope you're feeling better mate. Think i've found the 10 pounds you lost and another 2 stone on top.Amazing how several months training can be wiped out with a couple of Xmas piss ups and 46 boxes of chocolates!
