I can't remember when the last time I was that sick. I was out of it for almost two weeks. The last build session left me pretty exhausted and I was praying for the recovery week. Unfortunately, it turned into almost two weeks. I started feeling lousy and missed Saturday April 7th workout and I missed yesterday's swim workout (April 17) as I woke up and was freezing cold and had the "shake and bake" throughout the night. Basically freezing cold one minute and then boiling hot ten minutes later. I even missed two days of work and it would have been more if I had to work on the weekend. Some days, I couldn't even move and other days, I had a piercing headache or killer sore throat. Yes this cold at it all.
Note to self: Get the damn flu shot next year. We normally get it but forgot this year and everybody in the family got sick.
This morning I felt almost 100 percent but wondered how much I've "lost" due to inactivity. Today's bike was a tough 90 minute ride with pyramid drills and then a mini FTP test (2 x 10 minutes) at the end. I struggled to finish in the last couple of minutes but its good to be back feeling normal (almost).
