Re: Fitness Checkin

Feeling pretty good today. I finally got over the horrible stomach bug that's kept me from eating anything but broth and applesauce since last Sunday. Of course, now I have a cold. I follow the "neck up" rule when it comes to exercising, though. If I'm sick from the neck up exercise usually makes me feel better. If I'm sick from the neck down then exercise probably isn't a good idea. Since my symptoms are confined to nasty congestion and a minor headache, I figured a bit of exercise would help. I took a walk outside for an hour and a half over the Williamsburg bridge. I rode my stationary cycle for an hour and 15 minutes, did a few reps with some free weights, and some stretching.

The exercise does seem to have helped my cold a bit -- or it could be all the pseudoephedrine.
