Down again for a few days

I have come down with a mild cough and cold in the past day or so. It is not unusual for a lot of people to come down with flu-like symptoms a week or two after an Ironman. Your immune system is compromised and you are susceptible to viral infections. My particular case was quite extreme with dehydration, lack of nutrition, and I was a bit weak to begin with (mostly because of injuries leading up the the Ironman). The heat and humidity in Cabo did not help! Even after two bottles of IV, I did not have to “go make pee.”

I have decided to rest and chill this weekend and do virtually nothing. I will catch up a bit on work, sleep and watch some lazy televition (golf or cricket) this weekend. It sounds like a fabulous plan!
