After the great workout on Saturday, went to swim Sunday AM just as easy recovery but after 3000 meters my stomach was cramping and I was cold in the water. The rest of the afternoon and night I was in the midst of feverish stomach bug that eventually subsided by early Monday morning. Sleeping on and off along with consuming water almost non-stop helped me to feel much better in the morning to the point of trying to do the workout. Still must have been slightly warm as the water felt cold to me and I had no energy. I pushed the 1000s, 500s, 50s as best possible and then had enough to skip forward to the warmdown. Will see how tomorrow goes with a hopeful goal of being normal by Wednesday.

    Argh! Hard to do much after a stomach bug. Glad you're at least on the mend.

    Thanks. I am certainly not complaining now as it appears to have run it's course as a short intense bug rather than some kind of long drawn out or chronic type. I am always amazed how one's body immune system rises to the occasion and the science behind it.
