So I really thought I was managing fatigue and my health pretty darn well.... ie: taking a day off here and there to feel strong the next few days. I have been fighting a cold since Jan 1 and it has been at bay but there...waking up with a sore throat or stuffy nose - just not 100%. I nailed some solid training though it and thought it was finally gone...Monday AM woke up with an elephant on my chest..ok not really but that is what it felt like. But since I have been waking up not feeling great I got up and took the pups out for an early walk and headed to the pool to coach my Monday AM weekly lesson. The coffee was not helping, the energy from the lesson did not help....but nevertheless I hopped in the pool and started swimming. 1000 yards later I was out and in the shower...this was something more. Dang it.....
Headed home and crawled in bed...lots of sleep and many homeopathic remedies
Overkill.... maybe not sure.... Tuesday day off! Wednesday woke up ready to roll...80% and make the
Carlsbad 1/2 is tomorrow..... survey says skip it. But I am not....I am going to run it easy and have fun....Made plans to go with K so will follow through and just have a nice catered training run.
By the way if you have not seen MoneyBall....rent it!! Read the book and loved it - but Brad Pitt did a stellar job playing Billy Bean.
Big breakthrough with one of my athletes this week....her swimming is coming along so well and we did a few 100's and asked her to guess her 1st one based on her effort...guess was 12 seconds slower than the time! Now that is progress...followed by another who emailed me that not only did she move up to a faster lane but she lead the lane!! Sweet..... exciting for all of us
