Weekly Wrap | The FLU and My January Miles

Last week I managed to get in one full workout before getting completely run over by the flu.

I took Monday off to run errands after being away all weekend, but made it to Bodypump on Tuesday. It was day 2 with my heavier weights and it was another tough workout. I had to really push at times and the shoulder track was seriously KILLER. I felt good about my effort when it was over though.

Since the rest of my workout week got put on major pause, I thought I would take a look at my January miles. I ended January with 17.76 miles. I'm really happy with that number since it is more than quadruple what I ran in January 2017, although I was really hoping to have one final run on Wednesday. I'm still happy that I ran nearly twice a week and that most of my runs were in the 5k range.

Besides my one strength class, I did manage to start my February core challenge. This challenge increases the intensity over time, so the first few days were light enough for me to do while I wasn't feeling great. Even though I was extremely lethargic, it felt good to move a little each morning (it's when I had the most energy) because I was missing my workouts.

Monday - REST

Tuesday - Bodypump

Wednesday - Run ---> REST

Thursday - Bodypump ---> REST and started FAB AB February

Friday - REST

Saturday - REST

Sunday - REST and a walk

Now that a new week is starting, I'm soon do you return to workouts after being sick?

I’m linking up with Holly and Wendy for the Weekly Wrap!


  1. The flu is in HK? I thought that was where it started! I'm glad you are recovering. I guess you just have to listen to your body and as long as you don't have a fever, you should be ok to start back at it. Feel better!

  2. UGH, the flu sounds dreadful! Knock on wood, I have not had anything illness-wise all winter. Not even a runny nose (I'm probably totally jinxing myself by typing that). Hope you're feeling better!

  3. Oh, no! I'm sorry to hear you've had the flu. I hope you are feeling better already. I don't think there is a set time to return to working out after being sick. If you feel like you have the energy and aren't running a fever, I would think you should be OK. Thanks for linking!

  4. You know, I'm wondering the same thing about marathon recovery.... when to start back! Glad you're feeling better. You are making me miss my bodypump classes ...maybe I'll try to get one in this week!!
