I am back in the game! When you are in the habit of exercising regularly, a week without it is bad enough even when you are not obsessively worrying about the consequences of illness and hiatus for your ironman plans....
Lungs still full of phlegm, and I am blowing my nose quite a bit, but really I am enough better to start back up with easy-intensity things. I rode my bike down to Chelsea Piers (slightly nerve-racking to be back on it after a short break, I lose my desensitization to bicycle-related anxiety very quickly) and had a nice easy-effort swim. I'll run for an hour a bit later on this evening once it has cooled down a little (after many days of frigid torrentially rainy conditions it has now inconveniently and unpleasantly surged to 80F).
