Time to press play
Last night was the first night that I had a good night's sleep without coughing all night. I finally feel rested and really able to train at close to 100%. Bronchitis is no joke, especially if your lungs have been compromised by double pneumonia in the past. It had me down, but I'm BACK! I thought long and hard about filing for a refund for my upcoming Ironman 70.3 (it's a 1/2 Ironman), but I decided to let the April15th deadline pass. Since I started with Triathlons, I have always had challenges to overcome. I feel that this setback with Bronchitis is no different. I still feel like I can do it and I will.
Eagleman 70.3 (My 1/2 Ironman) is in 7 weeks. I will train hard and make sure that I am as ready as possible. I have another 1/2 Ironman in September in Cozumel, which I will make my A race. My prayer is to stay healthy and injury free, so that I am more prepared for that one.
Thanks for your positive thoughts, prayers and motivation,
