Mom and I did a run-swim brick together today. My body was achey from lack of exercise but I felt feverish so I actually took my temperature. The thermometer told me it was okay, so we headed out in bathing suits with running shorts. We pounded the pavement through downtown Waikiki and back while Mom talked. I was still having coughing fits when I tried to run and talk. The swim at the end felt good for a few minutes then I had to stop due to coughing.
30 minute steady pace run
12 min open water swim
The purpose of today’s workout was really just to get my blood pumping and free up some achey muscles. It did the trick but later on I was feeling extra fatigued and my entire lower back/upper hamstring region felt uncomfortable. I did a few gentle stretches and focused on staying well hydrated.
back flex– my back was aching from so much deep coughing
