Down Week

I have done zero training since Sunday. Monday morning I woke up with a slight cold that has persisted. Past experience shows if I try training through something like this, I just get really sick. Next week I have once a year job training that I would prefer to be healthy for. It will be a full week.

Following that, I am going to focus on patterns that keep me healthy and training. The penalty for one heavy day of activity like last Sunday should not be a cold. That is an indicator that I am allowing other areas of my life to generate an unwarranted amount of stress.

Initially I am going to make a point to stop working through lunch and start leaving work on time. I am also going to remove refined grains from the menu, whether eating out or at home. My daily consumption of processed food needs to return to once a week at most.
