[quote=Justin McGinley;750885]Bleh. So, how are you feeling today? It's been a week, right?[/quote]

[quote=Nancy Cohen;750940]Oh Steve, you've had a rough go lately!! Take care of yourself dude! :)[/quote]

Thanks for asking, Nancy and Justin! Feeling a LOT better, but this "thing" still seems to be hanging on. At least I wasn't totally winded carrying something to the top of the stairs inside our house like I was the other day!

Looking forward to starting back up.....easily at first, I'm afraid.

Glad you are getting better, although slowly. It is nice to follow you on FB!

Thanks, ET. FB is fun, if not a bit too time-consuming. I though these boards could tie me up..........Sheesh!:yikes:

[I][B]100310 WEDNESDAY

[/B][/I]Doctor visit - - follow-up today. Great news; I can start working out again! No pneumonia, just a nasty respiratory infection and info that my sub-clinical asthma (I've had most of my life) is probably no longer sub-clinical......

The bad news....X-rays showed old scarring and damage due to second hand smoke for years (mom was a chain-smoker). Dr. said the hard workouts (e.g., CrossFit) and deep breathing necessitated through the workouts were the best thing I could do to keep lung function up as I get older!

Let's hear another big round of applause for CF!!

It's great to hear you have a doctor that's not afraid to suggest his patients actually exercise.

Welcome back and get in the gym!

Great news that you can start working out again! :)

This week i also had another big round of applause for CF! A new client of mine (29 year old skinny chick with chronic back pain for years) had been doing CF style WODs with me for ~5 weeks...then she got into a car accident!After the accident her doctor told her that the only reason she can walk after the accident is because of the workouts she has been doing! Her doctor said the only unfortunate thing is that insurance won't cover my services!

Thanks for the encouragement and the kick in the butt, everyone! Last few days have had no energy at all......naps every afternoon and no workouts. BLEH!

[I][B]100315 MONDAY

[/B][/I]First workout in about two weeks.......No way I was ready to do "Murph" with the rest of the CF Sonora crew, so did:

[B]Jump rope workout - - approx. 50:00
[/B]Lots of short rest breaks
Concentrated on DU attempts - chained three twice today!
Mixed these in with 5 sets X 100 single. All but last set unbroken.
