Beginning on Sunday, the seasonal allergies that had plagued me for the past 4 years returned with a vengeance.
Headache, exhaustion, sneezing, coughing, red eyes, teary eyes, painful burning eyes, general “itchiness” and a ton of mucus.
In general, I feel like crap.
And that got me thinking about the difference between health & fitness.
I am still fit enough to:
- Lift a ton of weight and….
- I could sprint hills with guys half my age and half my size and…
- I out cardio Jane Fonda on a good day
But, I feel like crap and I don’t want to do anything except crawl back into bed.
All because of allergies.
Luckily for me, I have a very odd, but very effective allergy treatment booked for Thursday.
Until then, I have to suffer.
And that got me thinking.
What if I was really sick?
Would I give a damn about running an extra mile or lifting a little heavier than the last workout?
As they say, “if you don’t have your health, you don’t have anything.”
