Being Sick Sucks

So I finished HITS on Saturday, the 24th.  On Sunday I rested and a short recovery walk.  Monday went to swim.  Felt ok but was not at 100%.  Monday night the sh_t hit the fan.  I started a fever and a wicked post nasal drip.  Tuesday I went to the doctor got some antibiotics and went home to be in misery for the next two days.  Tuesday through Thursday I was out of commission.  It sucked.  BTW.  Do not ever get an antibiotic shot in the arm it hurts for a long time.  I would have rather had in the a__. You know I was sick because I missed a spring training game my sons and I were supposed to go to.

Friday I went to stretching.  It was hard but low cardio and impact.  It was the perfect thing to get back into the  swing of things.

Saturday I went to Clermont and rode 22 miles on the hills.  That was incredibly hard.  I did everything I could not to get worn out on those hills.  I helped Snackie and MiniMe(new nickname for Bulky.  She showed up on Friday dressed just like the CL and then started espousing fitness stuff like the CL.  Also, count that she is less than 5 feet tall and she became MiniMe.)  We finished at Elaine's house and then went for a swim for 800 meters.  I was pretty much swimming with Snackie. She is such a good swimmer, so the fact that I was even close to her was great.  I think that was because we were having a tough time siting. With all the zigs and zags I was able to stay close.  At one time she bumped my thigh, I thought I would have some fun with her and tell she hit my a__.  Needless to say we bumped into each other a few more times.

I rode with the CL, Snackie, and Rainbow out there.  We determined that the CL is looking for a guy that looks like Adam Levine or Blake Shelton.  Snackie said something like that would work for her too.  I will have to see what I can do.  I wondering if I get a dude with an Adam Levine mask, if that will work.

Sunday I was not supposed do anything but I did anyway.  I jog in zone 2 for 2 miles.  Just trying to find my groove again.

Fortunately, I was only sick for 3 days so I think I have recovered pretty well.  I tell you how that goes in my next post.

Train Hard, Train Smart
