The air seems clearer, the water seems sweeter and the food seems tastier. I am off all drugs as of today. My body still hurts and I am still weak, but it is refreshing to start clearing my body off drug supplements. I am still in no shape for even a mild workout. I have to sleep in a specific position (on the side with most of my weight on my left shoulder). I am still hacking up a storm. But…I feel like there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Using an old cliche, I just hope it is not light of an oncoming train!
My focus has shifted (temporarily) from working out and selecting a new Ironman event to our upcoming trip to Italy. I hope I am well enough to do a small bike ride while in Italy. I hope to rent a Bianchi bike for it!
