The worm has finally turned on the illness that had taken over our household. I am feeling much better and after a 10 day hiatus from any physical exertion, I finally got on the bike yesterday. It felt great to be out. My legs felt fresh, but my cardiovascular system was still struggling. My heart rate was much higher than usually during an average 100 watt bike ride.
As I was returning home, there was a fire near our house that was being contained. I don’t know the extent of the damage, but it did create quite the stir in the neighborhood and provided a good reminder to check the fire extinguishers and have an emergency plan.
Today also marks the first swim and run in that same period of time. The swim went OK and the run went poorly. I am glad my ankle held up as I had a gout flare up over the weekend.
