Resurrected from the dead

Unfortunately, no matter how you try and avoid it getting sick happens to all of us. I spent most of last week KO’ed in bed. Despite the excellent care of fellow farmers Beth, Noah, Wyatt, and Gus, I still managed to lose 10 pounds and am just getting back into the rhythm of training this weekend. As anxious as I am to get back into full on butt kicking training mode, it’s important to make sure my body is actually ready to take in the training. Credit to Jeff Schloss for the rule of waiting to do intensity until 3 days after you start feeling good i.e. actually working out when you have been really sick.

On a more upbeat note, I’m unbelievably excited for our trip to the West Yellowstone ski festival. Even more exciting is the trip to the Supertours in Bozeman myself, Beth, Coach Ben, and some of the juniors (Patrick, Katrin, and ???) Few things about this trip are certain other than it will be buckets binders of fun, I will probably lose any facial hair growing competition, and there will be a lot of skiing. Words can hardly describe my anticipation. . .
