It’s Monday and I hate missing a Monday workout, even though I’ve got some serious upper respiratory issues going on. In fact, I keep coming in and out of sickness. I’ll admit I have such a non-stop schedule I don’t get near as much rest or sleep as I should. Which no doubt is contributing to this lingering bug I can’t shake. I just don’t know how to take it easy.  I did manage to let myself skip a heavy workout at the gym but I compromised by doing a shortened version of one of my go to at home HIIT workouts. I feel better knowing I worked out and got my heart rate up for a bit, even if it was only 15 minutes. Exercise is such a part of my mental well being these days that doing nothing at all on a Monday will throw off my mood for the week.
