Back to the Grindstone: Post Disney
Despite the risks to training, Disney was an experience I wouldn’t have traded for anything. For years, my family has loyally stood by my side on repetitive racing vacations. It was great to finally pay them back with a trip that didn’t include my bike or packet pickup.
The worse thing health wise is that I seemed to have picked up the FLU as a souvenir. My only guess as to how this happened is that I received the flu vaccine at the earliest possible time last year. It is possible for immunity to wear out, and the season is still going on. Plus I was surrounded by thousands of international travelers. Started feeling ill on Friday, and it came full on yesterday. After I got back home, I slept for 12 straight hours and I’ still feeling it big time today. Unfortunately, today is The Summit Classic 5k/10k…looks like I will have to wait for next year.On more race related news, somehow, through some miracle, I went from 140+ on the waiting to list to getting a spot in The Grizzly Triathlon next weekend. I have some serious payback owed to this race and I’m looking forward to seeing what gains have occurred from this past year of training.
For now though, rest is best.
