  14. Still feeling like crap but was able to breath better

    by , March 9th, 2015 at 07:20 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    Missed my Saturday workout cause I just didn't get enough sleep.

    Chlorine works miracles. I was so congested and once I get in and start swimming I can breath, no congestion at all. Still had the nagging cough and the pressure behind my cheek bones on every flip turn but over all I felt ok in the pool room. Now at work I am stuffed up again and coughing up a storm.

    When will this be over?
