So what was the difference between those two years, now, and back in my gymnastics days? I wasn't working out like a fiend. When I was a gymnast I worked out at least 20 hours a week, and in high school often more. Those couple years that I never got sick I was working out but maybe I wasn't pushing it like I do now. I am more on the level I was back when I was in college, and I got sick a lot in college. I have read that pro cyclists do wear down their immune system and can get sick, I wonder if that is what I have done. I have also had a lot of kids really sick at the gym over the last few weeks. Most of the kids that have been sick have missed long stretches too, like a week or more. So if I caught what they have I might be in for a few more days before I feel better.
I guess what I have been thinking is how funny it is that you try to do something that should make you healthier. But it could make you sick. I guess how they say you have to do everything in moderation, even the good stuff. That has always been my problem though. I don't do much in moderation and get pretty crazy about my interests and hobbies.
I hope this ends soon so I can get back to training and I can get back to the gym and work with my girls. I'm feeling a little better now, but I am a couple hours after taking some tylenol so that is normal. I will see in a few more hours.
