Maiden voyage!

My initial feeling was that I was more upright than on the Madone (or maybe I am misremembering and comparing it to the tri bike) and that the cockpit feels more relaxed.  Very comfortable!

Thursday - November 29

  • 1h 10m 34s
  • 2405.95 yards
  • -----

200 warm up
100 kick
50 catch up
50 finger tip drag

4 x 400 @ 40, easy swim

200 cool down. I intended to do 100 with fins and 100 with pull buoy but the fins caused a cramp so I ditched them after 50 and did 150 pull.

Much better today.  Still a bit tired and my color is off a bit but otherwise I feel fine. 

Also, very important to my recovery, I picked up my bike!!!!

Note the lovely red color!  Note the Ksyrium SLS wheels with white spoke that was totally made to look good on my bike!

Wednesday - November 28

Made it to the office today.  Head still fuzzy but good enough to image machines for installation next week so I'm doing that.  It would be best if I didn't try to do any serious troubleshooting today.

Made it through the day.  Energy level way off.  I was ready for nap time at about 2:00.  Kevin said that my eyes look normal but my color is still off a bit.

Tuesday - November 27

Starting to see some improvement today.  Heading into the office tomorrow.

I checked in with Coach and she suggested that I start back with an easy swim on Thursday and that we go from there.

I'm reading Wolf Hall now.  It takes place in the 1500s (Henry VIII, Cromwell, etc.).  I cannot imagine having this virus during that time period.  yikes.  (P.S.  The book is kinda bad.  I wouldn't recommend it but I will finish it because I almost always finish books.)

stupid idiot took her bike out despite illness. must. test. new. wheels.


Oh, it was 43 with 15+ mph wind took. nice.

My uncle was sick on Wednesday night.  Kevin and I both started to feel ill in the middle of the night on Friday.  I woke up at about 2 am with my stomach gurgling and rolling.  Oh no! 

Stupidly, I decided to ride my bike anyway -- despite the fact that I had been up about every half hour start at 2:00.
