It’s been three full days of recovery now (no biking) and I still keep waking up in the middle of the night in coughing fits. I’m thinking that this will be my last day of sickness and that I’ll be back to training by Thursday. I can’t take much more of this sitting around!!! But to take a look on the bright side, I have been very healthy this year so far. I have kept a training log over the past 2 and a half years that keeps track of every workout that I have done, plus hours per week, how I felt, sick days, etc. Last year, I was sick for a total of 13 weeks (that’s starting and ending in August–which is when I first started the training log). The year before that, I was also sick for 13 weeks. This year, I have only been sick for 2.5 weeks total. Not too bad. I attribute it to a better diet (which includes a lot more fat), more sleep and better recovery, and living with fewer roommates.
