An extra dose of vitamin C…

Ugh! A little while ago, I started to get that feeling. You know, it starts behind your eyes and it’s usually a symptom of a fever or a cold. I’ve had my flu shots and I’ve been getting plenty of vitamin C. Maybe I need an extra dose?

Usually, when I get a cold, it starts in my throat, then moves to my sinuses, and finally my chest. This time, the only symptom is this feeling behind my eyes. Maybe it’s nothing. I hope so because there is no way I’m breaking my workout routine. I’ll workout when I’m sick if I have to, but I’m sticking with it.

Stay tuned…
