Out of the weeds.

November 21, 2011

This cold of mine completely floored me.  Training has been nothing but light maintenance work (if anything at all) for the past month but it looks like things are finally clearing up.  Things got so bad that I went see my doctor to get my thyroid and iron levels checked because I was so tired all the time, even with training at a standstill.  All of my energy was consumed with getting better and I was left in a constant state of exhaustion.  Numbers are back up on the bike, recovery from workouts has sped up, and running no longer leaves me feeling hoarse.  I'm still feeling vulnerable to sickness and things are still pretty light until I'm back up to 100%, but it looks like training for next year can finally (FINALLY!!!) begin.
