Road to recovery

Friday was feeling a little better but still out of it enough to warrant another sick day. Just to do something I rode my bike around the block. The legs felt fine but my chest was tight and breathing winded.

Today was better. Rode with the kids on the path for a 1/2 an hour in the morning.
(Now you midwesterners and nor-easters don't take issue with my low tolerance for cold) But my goodness it felt cold. I just don't understand. We went from teens and 20s to now into the 40s-50s and I still feel cold. Doesn't seem like I built any tolerance up.

Later in the afternoon I got on the road bike. The legs fel really good though can tell that they will need some help to transition back into harder efforts. I was tempted to go longer but wisely turned around and limited the foray to 35minutes. My cold is on the path to recovery but even that little ride has made me tired.

It usually takes 7-10 days to get it out of my system totally. While I am drying up there is still this deep seated congestion high in my sinuses that has been nagging for weeks. It's time to see the ENT.

2-3 more days in this recovery cycle. I'll get in another short ride and will throw in some 5x1minute SMSP before starting the next phase. But I can just feel the legs are ready to throw down.

Something's going to happen... Something wonderful.

It sounds like you have a sinus infection that may require some antibiotics to snuff out. Tis the season for all that...
