The flu is here - and it got the best of me. I should've known something was wrong on Sunday when a 10-minute walk with my dog left me needing a nap. After a weekend of coughing and extreme fatigue, I woke up Monday morning with a fever. I can not think of the last time I've had a fever, so this was quite a shock to me. And I don't think it was just a bad reaction to the Patriots loss. My case was textbook: aches, fever, chills, cough, headache, exhaustion. This is the last time I will ever brag about "never getting the flu." I spent two days eating chicken soup and drinking ginger ale. I did manage an easy workout on the elliptical yesterday, but that was all I had in me. I may make it to strength & cycle tonight - but only after a nap (per the advice of Coach Blake). Next year, I will be first in line for a flu shot.
