Maybe starting to finally get better

by - Monday, November 19, 2007

After being stuck with a seriously long illness of some mysterious origin, I think I'm finally starting to see the end of the tunnel. For the most part I can breath out my nose again. My throat has stopped hurting and my head isn't quite as congested. Although, my sinuses are definitely still back up more than they should be.

I've been taking these last few weeks off from working out because when I had tried, it'd been making me too tired and I think it was slowing down the healing process. I'm still a little leery about picking it back up again, but at the same time I'm frustrated because I know I've lost a lot of fitness ability because it's been weeks since I've been able to work out.

I'm really nervous about jumping back in though because I don't want to get sick all over again. Not with only four more weeks until I graduate. I want to be able to have without being sick all the time.

Tonight I'll be teaching yoga and FitTrek (Check out the link for more info on what exactly it is.) And then Tuesday I'm driving home for Thanksgiving! YIPPPIE! I am pumped to get home. My plan is to take it easy at home so that I can be back to full health by the time I get back to campus.

In other exciting updates: This weekend I went to the bars in Annapolis with my friends, and every time we go to Annapolis I always say, "Wouldn't it be funny if I run into my friend from high school who is in the Naval Academy?" Well in four years of going to Annapolis, I never have. But on Saturday night at like 1 a.m., my roommates and I bumped into him at Federal House. It was so random and so fun.

As for a soccer update, after an embarrassing loss in the first round of the ACC tournament, the Terps obviously haven't had any games. But the bracket for the NCAA tournament will be announced tonight between 5:30 and 6 p.m. on ESPNews. Unfortunately, I will be smack in the middle of teaching a yoga class at the time. I've asked about three people to text message me with the details though so I can check it out right after class. The main reason being, I may have to plan a road trip over Thanksgiving break for the first round.

Things are really up in the air with the team's potential seeding. They could get a great seed and have a first round bye and not have to play until November 28. Or they could get a so-so seed and have a game over Thanksgiving break at Maryland. Or they could get a really crappy seed and have a game over Thanksgiving break who knows where. Obviously I'm pulling for the first round bye so I can stay home, but if that doesn't work out I at least home the game is at UMD.

Anyway, guess that's all on the updates for now. I'm hoping I can get back to working out soon, but it's going to be frustrating as hell knowing I'm going to have to basically start from square one to build it all back up again.

    Sorry you've been sick. It is hard to get back in the groove after a break. But, if your body needs the rest - take it!
