You just need to sleep it off, drink more clear fluids, and consume vitamin C. Soup is good. Buckleys cold and flu usually works for me.

You probably worked out soo hard your body is telling you to take a vacay. ;-)

Yeah probably did work to hard. Did spinning class two fridays ago,felt like I had hit my brick wall after I'd finished. Woke up saturday,every joint in my body ached,sunday felt crap, monday right as rain! Did two spinning classes half hour apart with bench pressing on smith machine in that half hour! Been hit for six ever since! Really enjoy the feeling though when I've been beasted in the gym with my workouts. Just need to calm it down a bit I think! Not getting any younger.

Wow go easy there tiger. Dont burn yourself out. Consistentcy and eating right will help you achieve your goal. Start light then work yourself up by increasing intensity.

Have been a gym bunny for the last 10 years and hit my brick wall bout 4 years ago when I used to work out with my husband and his mates. We were doing weights and moved onto chin ups,did 2 and just broke down in the weights section! Only time I ever showed I was girly lol. Gonna look at my training and change things me thinks!!!

You could try zinc supplements, they've been shown to shorten a cold/flu bug. Or echinacea, but there is less evidence that it helps. Take care

Hope u feel better. Try a nice warm vapor bath for aches followed by some hot tea with lemon and honey in it and get some rest. Vicks also to help u breath before you close your eyes.
