    Well, i read that one wrong.
    Last Thurs i thought my energy was down due to a cut i was doing, but by late afternoon i was as sik as a dawg.
    Mentally exhausted and coughing. My wife packed me off to bed and began dosing me with hot lemon and honey drinks.
    This was new, as i don't do colds.
    Spent hours day and night drifting in and out of sleep.
    This morning i was pretty much back to normal, and ready to do a light workout.
    But i held off, waiting for next Thurs. I guess my strength will be back up, but that workout will steam roll me.

    I hope all goes well. Things like this don't happen to me often, but when it does a few days rest usually does the trick. Maybe start of the next WO just a little lighter

    Thanks Jerry. Good plan, but i made it gooder by having a play time - no scheduled exercises or weights or reps or sets. I don't expect it will do me much good, but it was fun.
