Yesterday was a day off of work for me and I had a cold develop over the course of the day. I felt worse as the day went on, but there were a few things that made me feel just a little bit better. I decided to write about my favorite comforts to have on a sick day.
1. Tazo Wild Sweet Orange Tea: I love this tea anytime. I tend to drink it more often during the winter. I feel like it does wonders for me when I'm sick. Usually after a few cups of this tea I start feeling better.
2. Water: I try to drink a good amount of water on a daily basis, but I know when I'm sick I need to force fluids even more so that my body can flush out whatever is attacking my system.
3. Soup: A sick day necessity! Two of my favorites are Wolfgang Puck's Tomato Basil Bisque and Progresso Chicken and Homestyle Noodle. Yum!
5. Puffs Plus Tissues: When I have a runny nose it tends to get rubbed raw very quickly if I use regular tissues. Puffs Plus are like wiping your nose with a soft material so your skin doesn't get irritated.
This is honestly the sweet spot of training where if I was going to get sick between now and January it is probably the best time to get it over with. I just completed my long runs over the weekend plus a 45 minute run. I don't have another long run for 9 more days. Let's hope this gets out of my system before then and I can stay healthy for the rest of this training cycle!
What is one of your sick day favorites?
That's all for now!
