Getting a cold

Getting a cold is never fun and always kind of shocks me as I rarely get sick. Maybe the 4am wake up for a 6am flight after a training camp is the culprit, or maybe I'm just a bit worn down from all the Olympic excitement. Either way head hurts, muscles ache and skin is super sensitive. If I had to choose a time to get sick though, a week that offers total TV indulgence with hours of Olympic coverage is a pretty good time. You can spend a day on the couch and enjoy it guilt free. I kinda wonder if it allows my body to recuperate though as my heartrate and metabolism are probably firing like they would during a work out!
