Sick Son, Sick Dad

My two-year old has been sick all week, runny nose, cough - so like any good Dad, I got his cold.

As my sinuses are my Achilles' Heel, I got hit and hit hard. Knowing that tomorrow I have a kettlebell class to teach in the park, followed up by a demonstration class with a local Pilates studio owner, I decided that the best thing I could do for myself was get as much sleep these past two mornings as possible.

Therefore, no workouts since Wednesday. I am itching to get swinging the bells, but all good things in time. No need to push it just yet. Hopefully I'll get some needed rest over the weekend and come out swinging next week.

Hey Howie, I have had great luck with a Neti-pot. Its a nasal salt water rinse .. no drugs. Do this a couple times a day as directed and it should give you some relief. They are available at all the big drug store chains.

I'm really looking forward to next weekend's BBQ .. take care!

I totally second what Franklin said. During my days as a yoga instructor we often used the good old Neti-pot. It takes some getting used to but it really cleans out the sinuses. Good luck and heal well buddy. Big hugs for Anthony.
