I feel a bit better today. My back pain has subsided a bit and my cough is slowly coming under control. It is not quite back to normal but I see some light at the end of the tunnel. I got on my bike trainer and rode hard for an hour today. I was exhausted but felt good that I was able to give it a pretty good effort.
Last week, I bought a new Castelli trisuit for the Ironman Hawaii 70.3 next month. The chamois is really thin and I was skeptical about it before I rode on it today. It is actually very comfortable.
It feels good to be back to working out and starting to feel somewhat normal. I have my fingers crossed that it doesn’t take a turn for the worse.
