haha.
i've been sick since Thanksgiving, first walking pneumonia then the chicken poxs. I worked out with the walking pneumonia for weeks albeit many coughing fits, then i finally went to the doctor who got my lungs cleared up with antibiotics then i caught the chicken poxs. I am lying low till i am cleared by my doctor. Just practicing little things like draws and dry fire between sleeping.

Draw weapon(knife or pistol) from cover
Dry fire- bring empty weapon to bear, aim, click.

Peregrine, your drawing and dry firing made me think of knife throwing from a draw.
Maestro Umpad said for a while he used to throw a knife at a target the first thing when he awoke every morning, to focus his mind. It might fit nicely with recovery sleeping..... If you are worried about damaging things in the house when you miss, just sharpen up some kebab sticks or skewers....
It will seem difficult at first, but everything is difficult at first.

Thanks for posting these, Maija.  It's enjoyable to see younger versions of M. Umpad and Ken, especially since he hemmed his killer dreadlocks.  I'm looking forward to seeing you and a younger Victor Damian.

I'll take it easy for a little when I'm sick, but I can't veg out or else I just turn into a pile.  I think it's a great idea to work out even a tiny bit, but I don't want to over do it, because then I turn into a sick pile.  It's a balance, and it depends what you are sick with.  It's very important to circulate that lymph though and to get the crap out of your lungs, and to fire up the metabolism a little.  And then after a workout I charge back up with food, water and sleep.  I think sleep is massively underrated.  Last year I was relieved of much responsibility in grad school so I got that 8 hours I always heard about - I became a different person.  It's amazing what paying off your sleep debt will do for you physically and mentally.  Anyway, off topic.

Off topic about sleep is not to off topic..Sleep does help you out ALOT. My cold lasted for about 2 days and I saturated my system with Tea , Bad Spelling , Vitimin C and Sleep..I must have drank to myself about a couple gallons of green tea in one day alone AND Arizona Icetea makes a tea called Herbel RX and its filled with Vitimins and I drank about 4 of those each day ..Would sleep then get up and eat more pills then eat..And it worked..The 3rd day I got bored with being sick..Told myself I was not sick anymore and then worked out for a hour..Then next day I was fine..I just had this lame cough that went away in about 2 days after that.
