Good to hear you're improving.

Did the doc ever give you a medication or did it play itself out?

No medication, he said he had some OTC stuff that could help if I wanted it. I opted not to take anything. The cough still comes back here or there. I knew I spoke too soon because I thought I wasn't coughing anymore then last night coughing up a storm.

Notes:
-First real day back, wanted to keep it easy but challenging

First beach day of this year, had my wife pick me up from work and went to the beach for a few hours with the kids. The beach was nice but the water was pretty cold! Took a 1/2 mile with Connor while we were there.

Love that first day at the beach. When we went it didn't matter that the water was cold the kids were in it all day long.

That V Challenge looks like fun. I might give that a go in the morning before we drive home.

APFT
pushups - 58
situps - 63
2 mile run - 16:38

Terrible but realistic since I haven't run barely at all in over 2 months. Pushups I dropped 21 reps from my last PT test in November, Situps stayed the same pretty much. I need to get back to working out consistently, period.

Just saw your PT test. I would have been happy with that 16:38 myself. Glad to see you moving around. You feeling better?

Whatever it is this year, it takes forever to get over. I think Derek said his wife coughed for quite a while, I still cough a ton in the mornings, and half the office at work has been shaking something since Christmas time. It's everywhere.

Good to hear you're feeling better and getting some good workouts in.

Good PT test considering you're recovering still. I'd figure you could get pretty close to where you were if you ran through it again with another few days of recovery.
