I’m sick yet again. It isn’t that bad. I’ve just got a runny nose and a tiny bit of a sore throat. I’m not sneezing or coughing. I went to work today. I telecommute so it is easier to work when I’m sick. But where should I draw the line on going to BJJ class?
I really wanted to go tonight but I kept thinking “would I want to roll with me?” I kept trying to tell myself it wasn’t that bad and that the others wouldn’t notice. The more I told my self that this was the truth the more I felt like I was kidding myself. I’m sick and tired of being sick! I don’t want to get anyone sick and sure don’t want them getting me sick. But this has got to stop! I’ll keep falling behind. It must just be that time of year. The transition to fall seems to bring it out. I have noticed that a lot of my co-workers are out sick too.
So answer me this: When are you too sick to practice BJJ?
Could I have gone tonight and no one would have cared? Would rolling with someone while mildly sick have gotten them sick?
