I NEEDED this weekend, you guys. I NEEDED it.
I didn’t even last one day on my training plan without succumbing to the evil sinus/ear infection that refused to vacate my body.
I’m done with the z-pack. I’m eating better. I’m drinking all my fluids. And I feel SO. MUCH. BETTER.
I surprisingly only missed 3 workouts. I think when I did this plan last time I added an extra easy 30-40 minute run.
This weekend, I did it all. I did the trifecta that makes this sport so awesome.
I swam. I biked. And I ran.
Mr. Neon and I did an easy 45 minute trainer ride on Saturday and then a 45min foundation run and a short 600yd swim on Sunday. That swim felt RUSTY. But it felt good to get back into the water. Mr. Neon reminded me that I easily swam 1000yds last summer with no trouble. I can get back there and go further!
I woke up this morning and had a mild panic attack because my body was sore. I was scared the body aches from the sinus/ear infection had come back. But NO…I was just sore from good workouts! I foam rolled while I drank my coffee and felt like jello afterwards.
This week is going to be challenging. Tomorrow I have an all day workshop out of town. I’m not sure I’ll be able to get my ride in tomorrow. And then Thursday, Mr. Neon and I have our biometric screenings for my work’s wellness/insurance plan EARLY in the morning. It’ll be a challenge, but I’m pledging to get all my workouts done, even if I have to double up!
Stay neon! And stay well! No more infections, ok?
