This weekend we were supposed to be in Knoxville for the Challenge Knoxville Olympic triathlon. I won this race back in January at the Bluegrass Tri Club kick off event. Even though we had a terrible winter I managed to get a good training base in thanks to committing to the Shelbyville Tri Series. It forced me to get on my trainer all winter. Once mid March came around I was able to get some good outdoor rides in. I was feeling strong for so early in the season.

I am bummed but things can always be worse. I will get over this crud soon & will be able to start training again. Patience isn't my strong suit.
The doctor did lecture me on not using my inhalers daily. I am so bad taking medicine if I feel OK. The reality is I get sick every spring. It always starts out as allergies then turns into a cold / sinus infection. This year I was doing so good. I didn't get sick at all this past winter so it was that much harsher when I got this doozy of an illness.
In an effort to not repeat this next year I am going to document my spring plans here as recommended by my doctor & and on my calendar for March 1, 2016
