Sick Leave

Friday, 16 May 2008  |  Bullish Insights

Like a loyal, hardworking employee, I am distressed over this “sick leave” I had to take, anxious over the fact that—while I was away for just a few days—I may have lost my momentum at work.

It’s been four days since I was attacked by feverrhea. In TBR’s Dictionary, this is defined as “the fever that sets in after you’ve gotten dehydrated from intestinal flu, which always comes as a shocker due to the large amounts of blue Gatorade in one’s system, particularly that of TBR’s.” Oh well, I guess all the cups of coffee I drank during that seminar last week dehydrated me into pieces.

Anyway, I’m all better now. Flushed feverrhea out of my system and down the toilet. But, it doesn’t erase the fact that I lost FIVE full training days. I can’t shake the thought that I may have lost some of the fitness I worked so hard for the past few weeks. Five days is significant considering I’ve been running every single day except for Mondays for almost a month now.  Suddenly, all I did for the past five days was drink soup, watch TV, and…oh yeah…I finished seven banner designs and a flyer too.

Oh well, I’ll find out soon enough.  I will miss all three races this Sunday (as if I was planning to join all of ’em!  Just Pringles initially…until I got sick) but, if our weather permits, I’ll be running again tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that.

Good luck to all of you joining Pringles, Market Market, and Takbo Para sa Kalusugan!  I wonder which race will have the most runners.  Your guess is as good as mine!
