Aches and Pains

Yesterday's aches and pains still haven't went away and I think I know why...

Last night my temperature was a bit higher and started going down as the night progressed but as today went on it started getting high again. If this keeps up I think I will head to the campus health center, which may be worse than running a fever and having a sore throat. I've never been to the one on campus but I hear the wait is awful.

Because I have been trying to stay consistent with working out and running I did some research online about working out while sick. One of the tips I found was if it hurts above the head (ie. headache, watery eyes, sore throat) you should be fine to work out, but if it hurts below the head (ie. fever, coughing, body aches due to sickness) then you should not workout.

My fever was down in the 99's earlier today so I thought it would be okay to squeeze in a quick workout just to keep my blood moving, and that workout did just that!


I completed a workout I found while browsing around on Fitlosophy Inc's site. I changed the box jumps to tuck jumps because I didn't have a box available. It definitely got my heart rate up, my legs burning, and my body sweating! After it I did a 10 minute walk on the treadmill on an incline because I was not feeling up to a run.

This is a great workout if you got out of your workout routine over the Thanksgiving weekend. Try it out and let me know what you think!

When you are sick do you completely skip the workout or push through it?


  1. I like the information you found! If it's above the head, you should be ok. I'll keep that in mind next time I'm not feeling well (hopefully not anytime soon). I hope you get feeling better!

  2. I do agree with Carling. I really like the information that you found and I will definitely keep it in mind when I catch whatever you have right now. Hope you get to feeling better. I hate having my roommate sick.
