Weekly Log –March 21 to 27
Monday, March 21
Very tired. Went hope after work to lay down. I can feel my body is depleted and I can’t seem to eat fast enough to get what I need.
Tuesday, March 22
Still tired but not as hungry. A bit sore from the weekend but nothing major. Enjoying my day of rest.
Wednesday, March 23
AM: swim with Tyee. Moving, but not fast. It was a good swim though. 600, 400, 200 with 50s between.
PM: 45 Minute spin, 3.2k swim and one hour of weights (progressive load). Swim was 400s. Still not moving quickly, at least until 30 minutes in, then I was able to pick it up. The weights woke my body up. I felt great when I left.
Thursday, March 24
OK, this is not good. My body is falling apart. My nose is really runny and I am sore all over. No swimming for me tonight. I had to leave work at noon as I was deteriorating rapidly.
Friday, March 25
Early morning flight to Toronto for a Masters Swim Canada meeting over the weekend.
Saturday, March 26
All day meeting. I am very sick. I am coughing all the time and feel really weak. Skipped out on the team dinner and went to my hotel room to sleep. Worried about how I will get home feeling this way.
Sunday, March 27
Morning meeting with MSC, a quick lunch and then off to Montreal. I am still really sick but not as bad as last night. Rest was helpful.
A few other bits
Mom set up an air purifier and humidifier for me at my home away from home. I cancelled all social engagements so I can focus on getting better. I was hoping to swim at Pointe Claire while here but I am far too sick.
These are the times where I am afraid of what will happen with my MS if I don’t take care to get better.
