Sick?

Oof, I don’t know what’s wrong with me. The past few days I have been in a fog – very tired and lethargic. And one thing’s for sure, it’s NOT because I’ve been training a lot! There have been a lot of sick people at work recently, including the girl I work real closely with in the department we support, but I don’t necessarily feel that kind of sick. I’ve just been so tired, but even getting 9+ hours of sleep the past few nights hasn’t seemed to help. Wednesday night on our group ride I hit a big brick wall and cracked, not literally of course :) Lucky for me no one else was feeling particularly punchy and we had already decided to do the short loop. A little more than half way through I fell off the back and told them to please leave me in my misery and go on without me. I could only manage to spin and knew the way back in. Of course our friends are way too nice and wouldn’t here anything of it. They spun in with me and talked the entire time to help the time go by faster. I still feel bad I ended their workout early, though. I came crawling home and hit the sack pretty quick, only to be exhausted when my alarm went off 9+ hours later. Sunday is my (sort of) half ironman and I really hope I feel better. Physically, this season has really been a bust so far :(

I think its going around - I'm feeling it too! About half of the PT patients at the clinic has been sick, and as Nathaniel cheerfully stated, "It's like a petrie dish in there!"

Yuck.

So I'm taking a self-proscribed day off.

Hope that you can do the same - sounds like you've been getting lots of sleep! Yea for that!

Hang in there fore this weekend! I'll be cheering for you AND your $25 MORE expensive Aqua Bike. :)

Go Bri Go!
