Some normality back today, back delivery parcels again and although I’ve only had 3 days off, it’s felt a lot longer.
I gradually got worse as last week went on and by Thursday morning I was ready to pack it in, but I soldiered on for another day. But when I got home Thursday night I was whacked. Fully bunged up, coughing and a banging headache to boot.
So Friday I took off. Which was tough to do knowing I’d not be earning any money for the day, but I had to think long-term and didn’t want to be ill for any longer than necessary.
And it turned out to be the right decision as I felt fine enough to go back to work today, I don’t feel as head fucked and I can think straight, plus my cough is nearly gone too. Still got a bunged up nose, but I can work with that fine.
Despite only having 3 days rest, which was mainly spent on the sofa, watching films and reading, in between severe bouts of coughing and sneezing, I feel like I’ve been off work for a week or more.
I’m not going to knock it, it’s not often in this job that I’ll get 3 straight days off.
Anyway, arrived at the depot for 6:45am today. 87 collections and deliveries throughout the day. Left the depot at 6:30pm, 11.75hrs, whoop.
Relatively quiet day on the delivery front, but yet still out for a full day. The deliveries were spread out, which meant a bit more driving, which was ok as I was happy to take it a little easier today.
I am pretty whacked tonight. My joints are aching and my chest is a little soar, I think from all the coughing the last few days.
Definitely not ready to get back to weight lifting pmsl. Think I’ll give my body until next week before pushing it through some weightlifting again, I might do some bodyweight stuff at the weekend, but I’ll just stick to lifting boxes all week.
Until next time…
