Sick day

I woke up about an hour ago (3 AM-ish) feeling blah, so I decided to take a sick day today. In some ways, I am really too busy to take a sick day (I’m skipping 2 meetings, and I have a ton and a half of work to do). But it might not have mattered either way. If I went into the office feeling sick, I wouldn’t have been productive. I can use the extra sleep. Of course, these are all excuses, I suppose, but that’s the way it goes.

I also feel bad about not going to the gym first thing this morning, but maybe if I feel better later today I can go to Greenbelt. Today is a cardio day; I hadn’t planned on a big strength training workout, so we’ll see how I feel later today.

For now, I’m going back to bed.
