I’ve been sick for over a week now, and I still have a persistent deep cough. Frustration!
I was doing well and chugging orange juice like I was a sponsor for Tropicana, so most of my symptoms have gone away.
(And in case you’re wondering, Googling “is it safe to exercise with a cough?” over and over does not change the search results. I tried.)
I have asthma, and regular exercise has been a great way to strengthen my lungs. But once I’m stuck with a cold, I feel like it’s forever before I can work out again. I jogged to the dining hall and it felt like an awfully far distance. I told myself to stop being so stubborn and to listen to my body (ignoring my body has brought me trouble many times before).
Even though I can’t be exercising right now, I’m still trying to be mindful and healthy. I cram my meals with whole grains and orange juice. I’ve been researching new treadmill workouts to try (love this one from FITNESS!)
On the bright side, I have plenty of time to enjoy all the goodies from the 2012 Student Communications Career Conference! It was a wonderful experience thanks to the New York Women in Communications Foundation.
Do you have any get-quicker-faster tips?
I try to sleep so much that my roommate tells me I resemble Rip Van Winkle.
Class registration just ended! What’s the coolest class you’ve ever had?
I’m super excited for my Evolution of Women’s Magazines class next semester!
