The Week That Was

Things went fine until Saturday, and then the wheels fell off; the weekend looked more like recovery than training.

Monday: evening Masters swim
Tuesday: evening stationary trainer intervals (zone 4) + some drills
Wednesday: morning run (1 hr. zone 2); evening run (2 hrs. zone 2)
Thursday: evening Masters swim
Friday: off
Saturday: late morning stationary trainer (2.5 hrs. zone 2); evening run (1.0 hrs. zone 2)
Sunday: late morning stationary trainer (2.0 hrs, plummeting back into zone 1)

Swollen lymph nodes this weekend and minor throat irritation - Saturday evening I restarted OTC allergy meds. Calorie intake had been on the low side. I'll go for a lighter load through the week and try to hit the bike early come Saturday.

Phooey! Although I hear you, and I feel your allergies. My nose was running like a tap all day yesterday.

The poor fellow at the front desk of the pool tried to talk to me on the way out, and I answered in monosyllables.

Feel better!

I am envious of your Wednesday run day, it sounds great! Sorry you were feeling under the weather, that allergy thing is a great nuisance...

Take care of yourself! Maybe your body is telling you to chill out a bit. You can attack next week so long as you get healthy.

Get better ASAP. Trust me, it is a lot better to deal with it now and get better then to have it linger on and on and on and on.

You must have more will power then I if you are able to stay on the trainer for those long time periods.

Keep up the good work.
