Week of Workouts {Nov. 1-7}

Posted November 8, 2014 in yoga, Piloxing, water aerobics, sickness, illness, working out while sick, Grokker, cycling

As I've mentioned a few times this week, I spent half the week battling a cold and a major headache/migraine. 

I had to get a sub for my Monday night Piloxing class, and I had to cancel my Tuesday morning cycling class at the last minute (like 5 a.m.). I was still feeling pretty rough when I taught my Tuesday evening water aerobics class, but since that class is so low impact I thought I could handle it.

I'm finally feeling better, and I'm excited to get back to my regular classes and my own workouts! 

Since it's cold and flu season, and I've already been hit with a massive cold, I want to share some tips on working out while sick.

  • If your symptoms in your head (sore throat, congested sinuses, etc.), you can still workout. Just listen to your body and take it easy. You may feel better temporarily because of the endorphins you get while working out.
  • If your symptoms are below your throat (cough, fever, fatigue, etc.), skip your workouts. Working out with a fever can actually make you sicker because you'll raise your body temperature even more. 

Here are my workouts from the past week....
