I was still too sick to swim yesterday. The crud still has a firm hold on my chest. I've read that asthma and allergies make you more susceptible to serious colds. This seems very true in my case. I rarely get an annoying cold; I always get a serious debilitating one. So I've missed an entire week of workouts, and I'm not at all near 100%. Such a frustrating year. Just when I was making some forward progress, I get nailed. I've also only gotten in one weights session in the last month with resting for meets and this gunk. I can tell I've lost a few pounds and some muscle mass. This summer, even though I won't be as focused on swimming or competing, I'm going to try to be very consistent about strength training. I'm hoping I can get some decent training in in the next 5 1/2 weeks before the Buffalo meet on June 7.
Today, I just did 2000 EZ. I felt terrible in the water and weak as a kitten.
