We are smack dab in the middle of a huge outbreak of the Norovirus. It's making work incredibly hectic, during our already busy time. Supposedly, it shouldn't make people too sick, except for the frail elderly and the very young. But we have been seeing people from all walks of life who are incredibly dehydrated and febrile. And its very contagious so alot of staff is also out with the same symptoms.
I started to get a very wonky stomach myself today during my first trip to the treadmill. So of course, like a smart trained medical person that I am, I promptly decided to go to Burger King and indulge in a BK stacker and some fries. This was brilliant, as now if I do get sick, I won't know if its the Norovirus, or just the fact that I ate fast food for the first time in months.
Of course, feeling guilty, I went back to the gym in the afternoon. I finished off 6 miles total. My calves don't feel right. and I feel pretty tired. I so hope that this is a temporary setback.
I still have a long long run to do this week. We'll see what happens.
Oh and everyone….Wash your hands. Don't use that Purell stuff, it doesn't kill Norovirus. So soap and water….and lots of it frequently!!!!!! It prevents such a nasty experience!!!
