This post is meant to be informative about how to get back on track after being sick.
About a month ago I lost a week of training to a cold, two weeks from that date I competed in my first powerlifting meet. The Tuesday after that meet, I drove myself to the emergency room in tachycardia with a fever of 104 degrees. Needless to say, the recovery out of this hole has been much longer.
From that Tuesday to Friday, I ate almost nothing for lack of appetite and purely drank water. Until yesterday, I've basically not eaten enough, and what I have eaten has been crap essentially. I've lost a week and six days of training.
So, come Monday, I'm getting back on the horse. I'm finally beginning to feel better. This will be a difficult process because I have two and a half weeks until Thanksgiving, then two weeks after that I'm leaving for Europe where I'll lose about two and a half weeks of training again. Needless to say, I rarely miss this much time.
- Drink a great deal more water
- Eat more protein (I live in a co-op with 50 people, meat is in short supply)
- Keep lifts and diet consistent through the next two months
- Improve my Kegel exercise reps
I'll post some basic progress starting Monday.
