All I want to do is drink beer and train like an animal.

I'm feeling rough. I'm feeling raw. I'm in the prime of my life.

Tuesday - 05/02/06 - The Worst Shape of My Life

This morning I went to the Dr's (different Dr.) because I had been sick for the past 3 weeks since I went to a conference in Asheville. My illness combined with my surgery combined with my leg retaining more fluid after regionals means that I was officially in the worst shape of my life. My heart rate was 76 bpm.

That's the highest stationary heart rate I've ever seen since I starting following it my freshman year. Even then it was at a 61.

Oh well, what can you do but keep working?

On the bright side the fluid in my leg is gone, the Dr. gave me some antibiotics (amoxicillin) and today was a beautiful day and I got to get out and ride.

Good times.
