I am still sick, over two weeks of being sick and I am OVER it! This morning I decided to make a get well plan:
- Get at least 8 hours of sleep
- Drink 96+ oz of water a day
- Take vitamins and drink Emergen-C
- Drink green tea
- Eat whole healthy foods
I plan to follow these rules until I feel better, I have a 10 mile race on Saturday and I need to be well!
Even though I am not feeling 100% I was still excited to get outside for a 40 mile bike ride today. We drove up to Boulder for our ride because they didn’t get as much snow as Denver and Colorado Springs did. It was very windy and a few crazy drivers that almost ran us over but it was still better than riding inside.
On the calendar for tomorrow is a 16 mile run. I am still debating if I should run inside or outside. I like running outside so much more and the highs or supposed to be in the 60’s, but running inside is easier. Choosing something just because it’s easier isn’t a good idea so I just decided……outside it is!
What kind of supplements do you take?
- Glucosamine for joint health
- Fish Oil
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin B complex
Uck, I hope you feel a lot better soon! The Vitamin C will really help – I downed that stuff a couple weeks ago when I was feeling miserable and it only lasted a few days.
I take L-Glutamin for a couple days after a long run or a hard workout. I take Flaxseed and Chia seeds (though technically not a suppliment??) a multivitamin and will start taking D-Ribose here again soon as my milels build, heel permitting.
Hope you’re feeing better. yay on the 40 mile bike ride. I take fish oil. Udo’s oil is great..have you heard of it? Google it. I also take a multi vitamin by Alive. I should take more.
