So sorry for not blogging in the last couple of weeks. Life has been crazy and I haven’t trained in the last week.
Why? You may ask have I not trained in the last week. Well last Monday after we biked ( it was a great bike that I really really pushed myself in) I had a coughing spell that lasted s good ten minutes. Then it happened again several times on the way home. I didn’t have a great sleep either. The next morning my gym buddy and I decided to do a gravel bike ride and I coughed and coughed and coughed some more. It seemed any time I did anything remotely physical I went into a coughing fit. After a week of coughing I went to the walk in clinic and the told the doc what was going on. I was also very clear that I had a triathlon on the weekend and I needed to finish it standing. After doing a couple quick little test he tells me that he is almost certain that I have exercised induced asthma and prescribes me an inhaler. Well life is getting better with the inhaler and I will finish Sunday on two feet.
Tonight at the race kick off we got our start times and lanes for swimming. I start at 915 in lane 3. Come out and cheer me on. Bring big signs and a camera. I can’t take selfies while I run.
After the kick off I rode the bike course once with the wonderful Rhonda and then a second time on my own. Guess what I didn’t cough up a lung afterwards. Yay.
Watch for a race day blog. Can’t wait to do this and kill it.
