Three weeks. That's how long it took me to complete the next two courses. A huge slowdown in pace, but, to be fair, its been a rough few weeks.

I got hit hard with some bug that needed to work its way through different body systems like a Disney fan making sure they hit every area of the park on their trip. I woke up one night with a fever and shaking chills. The only other time this has happened in my adult life was after the Covid booster shot. Then massive headaches that made focusing on anything a challenge. Finally, stomach issues that I don't care to detail, but left me dehydrated and weak for several days. All the while, work remained crazy as ever with a project coming to install last week and my team only at 50% manpower.

But, like the tubthumper, I got back up again. I took it easy while sick and for several days after to recover. Now, I am finally back to full speed and schedule. I'm hoping to regain my previous pace through the remainder of this certification course.
