Slowly but surely, my training is coming back to me. I've had a miserable mid-week run followed up by a pleasant 10-miler outside that I felt like I could've kept going. I'm also easing back into the bike. Once tri season is over, I tend to freeze my gym membership and resort to just walking around my bike on my way to my desk when I work from home. I quickly forget how intense indoor cycling can be. I'm absolutely loving this set of CTX turbo trainer rides I've found on YouTube. The music is fun and it's nice to see scenery instead of the inside of a cycling studio.
But just like that, I came down with a hell of a cold. I can't sleep because I'm so congested, and I can't run because I just cough. I suppose I could cycle, but I presently have just about enough endurance to get up the stairs. This is the second massive day-destroying cold I've had this season. I used to think I had a great immune system. Now I know I was just lucky.
Anyone else feel like as soon as they have a rhythm going and feel like you're making progress, fate just comes along?
