A cold is creeping in. It started in the throat. In an effort to combat it, I quickly overdosed on Vitamin C. But that didn't work. I wore a long sleeve shirt to bed and tried to sweat it out last night...to no avail. This morning I layered up and slogged through a misty 7 miles. The limbs feel weak. The head is light. I am taking cold medicine and I am thirsty. Water...must drink more water.
I've started core exercises at night. I do them just before I jump into slumberland. I do sit-ups and push-ups...old school style; real meat and potatoes like. Per Towpath, I also began working with the "foam roller". It is a great tool and does a wonderful job massaging the legs...but it hurts like hell. My face is a distorted mess when I go through the routine. Last night I wept a single tear of blood. My muscles are tighter than piano wire and it's time to turn things around.
