This is definitely the longest stretch of sickness I've ever experienced. One week of apparent food poisoning, followed shortly by chronic coughing that shows no sign of improving. I got checked out and was told it was viral- most days I feel pretty good, but every once in a while kind of run down. The one constant has been the coughing- to the point where I sort of tweeked my back, rib or some combination last week. I cough on every run, sometimes to the point of initiating a gag reflex, and I've had to stop for minutes at a time almost every time out.
This has got to end, hopefully soon. I am in decent shape, but periodically question my sanity during long or hard workouts when I am forced to stop.
This is no fun.
