I really want to go to martial arts tonight. I missed a bunch for the kids’ schedules and then caught Middle’s cold. Last week was a little nutty as I was on call and it was a little busy with one partner out of town. I have been fending off a sinus infection for 6 days but today will start on an antibiotic. I cannot go to class tomorrow because I work too late. I cannot go Wednesday because I need to go to an orientation at the high school for incoming freshman parents. I really want to go.
But the rule I have had to make for myself is: No class on antibiotics.
If you are sick enough to be on antibiotics, you are sick enough that working out will make you worse. So I won’t go tonight. The harder question is always when the antibiotics are working how long do I have to stay away. For me, if I feel I need an inhaler to breathe when I am not even working out, I should not take class.
