So I opted to do 13.2 on Thursday, to get it over with. I was the only one going, as it was right before the 10a class, and everyone else who was there wanted to do the regular WOD, or stretch, and then do it afterwards. I didn’t want to take up coaching time for mine, so I came in early to get it done.
Sucked…. You know what sucked about it?? I was doing it alone, there was no music, it was cold, my lungs were burning.. Terrible conditions for a competitive WOD. I ended up scoring 190.
I said I wouldn’t redo it, oh well, one and done. After I saw how others were scoring, I was like, omg, I can totally do better than that.
And then my cough/sore throat got worse.. by the hour, it seemed! By Friday, my ears were stuffy and plugged, I was coughing and clearing my throat throughout the day, and coughing up some yummy phlegm. Mmmmmmmmm.. I didn’t work out Friday.. I didn’t work out Saturday (I did cheer on my fellow teammates at CF Southside though), and then today.. Sunday, I swore up and down I’d suck it up, take some meds, and redo the WOD.
I judged 3 rounds.. and then went for a quick jog around the block. Halfway around I felt the cold, dry feeling in my lungs.. the same I felt from Thursday. So dry! I thought to myself, no way.. it’s just not worth it. I spent all night trying to get rested up for this, even went to bed at 9p last night, but I ended up getting up 3-4 times to cough shit up and take meds. I told my coaches no chance.. it’s just not worth it. I know I can do better than 190, but let’s face it, I’m not going to Regionals, so, I just need to suck it up and accept my shitty score. 🙁
I hope I start feeling better soon!! My doctor texted me and recommended Mucinex and Zyrtec D.. if this is what ‘feeling better’ feels like, I don’t want to know how I’d feel if I hadn’t taken anything.. Good lord.
